The Cincinnati Bengals are getting decimated by the Cleveland Browns in one of the biggest blowouts of the season. While this performance is already bad enough, it turns out that Andy Dalton was injured in the process.

If the Bengals had any chance of mounting a comeback against the Browns, Dalton would have to keep pace with Baker Mayfield. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear he will have that opportunity.

Dalton is currently dealing with an injury to his right thumb and is questionable to return, per NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Cincinnati has been without A.J. Green for the past few weeks, and this injury to Dalton just escalates the issues on offense.

Now, the Bengals will turn to Jeff Driskel under center. The dual-threat quarterback put together an impressive collegiate career with Florida and Louisiana Tech.

The Browns lead 35-14 over the Bengals in the third quarter. The game is available on CBS.
