Andy Dalton started the first offensive drive of the Bengals' third preseason game against the Bears going 6/6 for 52 yards. He completed passes to a number of receivers and scored a touchdown on fourth and goal from the one-yard line.

Following the touchdown drive, news broke that Dalton had suffered a neck injury and that his return to the game is questionable. The injury likely was suffered during the touchdown when he rushed into the endzone with a sneak.
