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.
