Andy Dalton suffered a thumb injury in the second quarter of the Bengals' 35-20 loss to the Browns on Sunday, but it doesn't appear to be as serious as the team initially thought. Following the troll job, Jackson accepted the football and patted Randall on the head as if he was still his player.
Jackson was sacked as Browns coach after a Week 8 loss to Pittsburgh on October 28.

Mayfield irked by Hue's move to Bengals
Hue Jackson, against all odds, began working for a new team right after being let go by the Cleveland Browns, and the immediacy of the role change for Jackson has rubbed some members of the Browns the wrong way.
Mayfield already has the Browns out to an early lead against the Bengals, thanks to touchdown passes to wide receiver Antonio Callaway and tight end David Njoku. He's thrown for 2,242 yards and 17 touchdowns this season, making him a Rookie of the Year candidate.
Mayfield is showing the athleticism and accuracy that made the Browns gamble on him in the draft instead of going with Sam Darnold, Josh Allen or Josh Rosen. After the game, Garrett lamented the missed sacks more than he wanted to celebrate the one he got.
