Andy Dalton has been sent home from practice because he came down with the flu, the latest Bengals player to miss time with an illness going through the team, the Associated Press reports.
The Bengals (10-4-1)said Wednesday they expect him to be fully recovered by the time they go to Pittsburgh (10-5) for a Sunday night game that will decide the AFC North title. The loser gets a wild card berth.
They also expect to have receiver A.J. Green back. He bruised his upper right arm during a win over Denver on Monday night and failed to make a catch.
