Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton has outpaced expectations through two weeks of the regular season, so much so that the Carson Palmer era officially appears to be over. But Dalton, who has thrown for 413 yards, completed 66.1 percent of his passes, and tossed three touchdowns and no interceptions, will be without second-year wide receiver Jordan Shipley for the rest of the year.

Shipley, out of the University of Texas, will be placed on injured reserve after tearing his ACL against Denver Sunday, head coach Marvin Lewis announced. Rapid Reporter Paul Dehner adds that Andre Caldwell, who was splitting reps with Shipley in the slot, will now take the majority of snaps with help from Brandon Tate.

Tate was signed off waivers after the Patriots released him prior to Week 1.

Shipley had to be helped off the field after Broncos cornerback Cassius Vaughn tackled him low, but Lewis had no problem with the play.

"That was just a tackle," said Lewis. "The way the game is put together now if he were hit helmet-to-helmet or shoulder-to-helmet it would have been a play that came in violation of some of our rules now. So down low is legal."

As a rookie, Shipley caught 52 passes for 600 yards and three touchdowns.
