Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton was held out of practice on Wednesday with an intestinal virus (i.e. flu), as Bruce Gradkowski took the snaps with the first team offense dealing with frigid conditions during their workout at Paul Brown Stadium.
Coach Marvin Lewis said that Dalton is expected to practice on Thursday before the Bengals make the trip to Reliant Stadium to face off versus the Houston Texans on Saturday. Dalton has never lost in Reliant Stadium, as his past high school history had him compete in games in Reliant as a quarterback from Katy HS in Katy, Texas.
