Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton played in the team's 14-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after throwing up at least 20 times earlier in the day, Paul Dehner of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Dalton first had symptoms of the flu after the team meeting on Saturday night. The quarterback said he "was going to play through (the illness) regardless."
From The Cincinnati Enquirer:
(Dalton) took IVs in the morning to replenish fluids, but this 24-hour bug picked poor timing as kickoff drew nearer and symptoms refused to relent.
"He threw up at least 20 times I saw," receiver Mohamed Sanu said. "He threw up so many times."
On Sunday, Dalton was 19 of 27 for 176 yards, with a touchdown and three interceptions.
In 11 games this season, Dalton has completed 62.4 of his passes for 2,413 yards and 12 touchdowns.
