Dalton Misses Practice, Expected Back

Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - Four days before the Bengals playoff game in Houston, rookie quarterback Andy Dalton missed practice due to an illness.  Head coach Marvin Lewis told Bengals.com Dalton has the flu and said Dalton would be "day to day."

In a last minute loss to the Texans three weeks ago, Dalton threw for 189 yards and a touchdown.

Saturday's game kicks off at 4:30pm EST and is the first playoff game in Texans history.  The Bengals last made the post season in 2009 but haven't won a playoff game in more than 20 years.
