Recommendation:Â Dalton left the game after being hit hard following a first quarter incompletion. Dalton was tended to by trainers, but didn't seem too concerned about the injury. He may have been able to return had it been a regular season game, but the Bengals weren't about to tempt fate by inserting him back into Thursday's tilt. Expect further updates after he's examined more closely, but it doesn't look as though Dalton will be sidelined for Week 1 as of now.
Update:Â Dalton left Thursday's preseason finale with an arm bruise, NFL.com reports.
