 CINCINNATI (AP) -Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer broke his nose during Saturday night's preseason game against the New Orleans Saints, but coach Marvin Lewis said he should be ready for the regular season opener.
Lewis said in a statement Sunday that Palmer had a small crack in one of his nose bones and it took doctors about 10 minutes to put it back in place.
Palmer is listed as questionable for the Bengals' preseason finale Thursday at Indianapolis, but is expected to start for Cincinnati on Sept. 7 against Baltimore.
The team said fourth-year quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will make his first Bengals preseason start if Palmer is unable to play.
