On Wednesday it was reported that Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton sat out of the Bengals practice due to what Joe Reedy called an intestinal virus. According to Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson, Dalton says he will be back at practice today and that he's feeling fine.

This is obviously very good news. I don't think anybody expected this illness to sideline Dalton for very long but it's nerve-racking to see any team's quarterback on the injury report heading into the playoffs. The Bengals have a chance to win their first playoff game in two decades on Saturday afternoon on Houston against the Texans and Dalton is the biggest piece of the puzzle. Hopefully missing that one day of practice has little to no effect on Dalton's ability to prepare for the biggest game of his career to this point.

Stay tuned tonight for both the Bengals' and the Texans' full Thursday practice reports.
