The Cincinnati Bengals are not waiting around on veteran quarterback Carson Palmer to change his mind about playing this year.

In his place, they will start rookie quarteback Andy Dalton in the preseason opener on Friday night in Detroit.

Head coach Marvin Lewis said on Tuesday at the team’s Georgetown, Kentucky training camp that the second-round pick from Texas Christian University has shown poise and has been exceptional in learning the team’s new offense in training camp.

The last time the Bengals drafted a quarterback was the disgruntled Palmer, who was the first overall pick out of USC. He spent his rookie season learning from veteran Jon Kitna.

Palmer made up his mind after a 4-12 season that he would not return, choosing to retire or be traded. Owner Mike Brown has said he will not listen to Palmer’s demands because he runs the franchise and not the quarterback.

During the off-season, the Bengals havebrought in a new offensive coordinator in Jay Gruden and two new quarterbacks in Dalton and number 2 quarterback Bruce Gradkowski. Carson Palmer’s brother, Jordan, remains the number 3 QB.

Cowboys lose to Giants; fall to 1-5 and lose QB Romo for season

The Dallas Cowboys had a lot of motivation coming into this season. The main motivation was the Super Bowl would be played in their new stadium. But so far 2010 has been anything but a disaster.

The season got more of a disaster Monday night when starting QB Tony Romo broke his left collarbone in the 41-35 loss to the New York Giants. That injury could end his season.

The recovery time according to medical journals, is 8 to 10 weeks.

The injury took place in the second quarter, as Romo was throwing to WR Miles Austin. He took a hard hit from New York linebacker Michael Boley, who was running towards him unblocked, full speed.

Number 2 quarterback Jon Kitna, the former Seahawk, Bengal, and Lion will be the starter. Kitna was the only backup quarterback  in the NFL in 2009 not to take a snap in a game.

The 5-2 New York Giants won their fourth game in a row and sit atop the NFC East Division.
