Joe Burrow Injury

The Cincinnati Bengals have confirmed that their starting quarterback, Joe Burrow, will miss the remainder of the season due to a ligament tear in his right wrist. This announcement was made on Friday by the team.

Head Coach Zac Taylor revealed that the injury is severe enough to necessitate surgery. The incident occurred during the Bengals’ recent game against the Baltimore Ravens, where Burrow had to leave in the second quarter with the score at 34-20 in favor of the Ravens.

An attempt by Burrow to continue playing was unsuccessful as he struggled with grip issues, leading to him heading to the locker room visibly upset.

This marks the second significant injury in Burrow’s NFL tenure, mirroring a similar scenario from 2020 when he sustained a major knee injury in a Week 11 game against Washington.

In related news, the NFL is initiating an inquiry into the Bengals’ failure to report Burrow’s injury status. This investigation follows a report by The Big Big News, based on information from an anonymous source knowledgeable about the situation.

Before his exit, Burrow had completed 11 of 17 passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. His absence leaves Jake Browning as the likely starting quarterback for the remaining season.

The Bengals, currently with a 5-5 record, have been under scrutiny after a video showing Burrow with a potential wrist injury was posted and then removed from their social media.
