A shoulder injury in training camp sidelined Fisher for almost three weeks as he missed the first two preseason games. When Fisher finally returned to make his NFL debut Saturday night against the Bears, it was a game he'd probably rather forget as soon as possible. Fisher...

However, Dalton left the game with a neck injury in the first quarter after just one offensive series, and that led to McCarron...
