Wednesday Injury/Practice Report: Andy Dalton Sits Out, Benson Limited For Bengals

The Bengals are in the playoffs and now they're to the point that if they lose, they're done. All 12 playoff teams want the same thing, a shot at Super Bowl XLVI and for the Bengals to get there, they have to go through the Texans first. Luckily, the Bengals are pretty healthy, just like they have been in the last few weeks. Andy Dalton is by far the biggest name on the team's Wednesday practice report, but he didn't sit out due to injury, he sat out because of an illness and he'll likely be back tomorrow. Running back Cedric Benson and safety Chris Crocker were also limited in practice.

The Texans are relatively healthy as well heading into their first playoff game in franchise history. Only linebacker Bryan Braman didn't practice on Wednesday. Six players, including tight end Owen Daniels and cornerback Johnathan Joseph, were limited in practice as well.
