CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Andy Dalton has officially been declared out of Saturday's wild card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bengals announced Friday.

Backup quarterback AJ McCarron will make his fourth start (2-1 record).

Dalton had his cast removed on his right thumb earlier this week, after he fractured it against the Steelers on December 13th.

He has yet to throw a football since having the cast removed.
