Bengals QB Andy Dalton reportedly missed practice on Wednesday with an illness, but it is not regarded as serious, according to multiple published reports.

"He's got the flu and we sent him home and he's fine. It's not a big deal," Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Wednesday, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.

Bruce Gradkowski is the Bengals' only other quarterback on the active roster. They also have practice-squad passer Zac Robinson.

Dalton started all 16 games this season, throwing for 3,398 yards with 20 TDs and 13 interceptions.
