X-Rays negative on Dalton's wrist

Was I the only one following Andy Dalton's NFL debut via gamecast on ESPN? He had a pretty decent start, completing 10 of 15 passes for 81 yards and his first career NFL touchdown pass, a 2- yarder to Jermaine Gresham late in the first quarter. But he was hurt on the Bengals' last possession of the first half and didn't come back in the rest of the game, with backup Bruce Gradkowski preserving the Cincinnati W.

Some good news in the aftermath, though, as X-rays on Dalton's wrist came back negative (remember, when it comes to X-Rays, negative = positive and positive = negative) and he is probable for Week 2 at Denver. Hopefully Channel 11 will air that game locally, although San Diego-New England is at the same time so I'm not going to hold my breath on that one.

Elsewhere, LaDainian Tomlinson had 89 total yards on just 11 touches and Jeremy Kerley returned 3 punts for a total of 13 yards in the Jets' thrilling win over Lebron Romo and the Cowboys. Daryl Washington had 7 tackles (6 solo), half of a sack and an interception in the Cardinals' win over Carolina. Drew Coleman had 5 solo tackles and a sack in the Jags' win over Tennessee.

D Wash had another pick called back due to some bogus penalty. In a game where Cam Newton owned everyone, D Wash kinda owned him.

Lebron Romo... I see what you did there. You sly dog you.

The only thing better than a Cowboys win is a Cowboys loss that can be directly penned on Romo. He has seriously destroyed my childhood memories of that team.

SWW, my sentiments exactly

And Jerry Hughes continues to work his way in the wrong direction on the Colts depth chart.

Anyone know how serious Hawthorne's knee injury is?

Yeah. Gotta wonder how that game would've played out had young Dez not got his quad all gayed up.

"Watching" on gamecast is no bueno. I watched Andy on the "first free weekend" of NFL RedZone, and am now hooked. If anyone has ATT U-Verse, it only costs me $5 extra each month. Thats the best / cheapest option I've found.

What were McCoy's numbers for that game? I'm too lazy to go look. My baseball oriented mind would give Dalton the win in that game even though he got hurt, and therefore Dalton>McCoy.

I'm having a major UT hate kinda day.

He played well. Like 2 TD's and no picks, but not a ton of yards I dont think. He's got nobody to throw to. I bet they have a worse year than Cincy.

I agree - you can't watch a game on gamecast. And RedZone only shows you just that. We have NFL Sunday Ticket - not the cheapest, but it works well for non-Cowboy's fans living in North Texas. I'm willing to share if you don't want to use gamecast next time...

I also noticed that Aaron Brown did not make the 53 for Detroit. Oh well, hopefully he gets picked up.
