The news coming out of Paul Brown Stadium this afternoon regarding quarterback Andy Dalton is positive.

During Marvin Lewis' press conference today, he was in good spirits, making jokes to the media about how fast they could type the news.

"We got positive news," Lewis said. "He'll be in a cast and basically we'll go week-to-week with things and that's as good an outcome right now as we can expect. We'll see how he is every week."

Lewis said "we'll see" about bringing in another quarterback while smiling. "Stay tuned," he added.

"It's time to move on and turn the page and get ready for this week and the challenges ahead of us," Lewis said. Regarding the playoffs, Lewis said, "We still have to handle our own business."

Lewis said it is the news he expected, different from the speculative reports that were "blowing up my phone."

Elise Jesse of WLWT spoke with Bengals quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese as well as AJ McCarron on Monday.
