The Andy Dalton Era in Cincinnati started out pretty well -- the rookie quarterback went 10 of 15 for 81 yards and a touchdown. Then, on the Bengals last offensive play of the first half, Dalton got jacked up by Browns rookie Phil Taylor and left the game with a wrist injury.

There's still no confirmation on exactly what the extent of Dalton's injury is, but according to head coach Marvin Lewis, x-rays on Dalton's wrist came back negative and he'll be probable for the second week's game.

"It's fine," Dalton said after the game, per Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer. "I couldn't have gripped the ball like I wanted to. The plan is to play next week."

Bruce Gradkowski stepped up in Dalton's place and didn't played pretty poorly, going 5 of 12 for 92 yards, but he found made up for it by finding rookie A.J. Green for the go-ahead touchdown. Or, at least, well enough to help the Bengals win 27-17 over division rival Cleveland.

And that's good news should Dalton be forced to miss any time as a result of the injury. Perhaps the best news, though, is early indications are that Cincy seems to have done pretty well with its first two selections of the 2011 NFL Draft.
