What Joe Burrow’s Wrist Injury Means for the Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow injured his right wrist in Thursday night’s 34-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Coach Zach Taylor called Burrow’s injury a sprained wrist.
  • After sacking Joe Mixon in the second quarter, the quarterback appeared to be in pain. He tried to throw passes down the sideline, but couldn’t and ran to the locker room.
  • Burrow went 11-of-17 passing for 101 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game. Backup quarterback Jake Browning completed 8-of-14 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown.
  • Burrow has not missed a game since Week 18 of the 2021 season.

A worst-case scenario unfolded for the Bengalis. As long as they have Burrow they have a chance and Burrow grabbing his right arm following a touchdown pass to Mixon is a bad sign. He tried twice to throw to the side and was unable to do so, instead making it worse when he bent over in pain following the attempt.

Burrow has battled injuries all year and is now finally back from a calf strain, which is the last time he or Cincinnati should enter the crucial stretch of the season with games in the AFC North. – Paul Dehner Jr., Bengals beat writer

What to expect from Browning

Browning won the backup quarterback job over Trevor Siemian in training camp, but it wasn’t pretty in the long run. The Bengals wanted the development of Browning, a former undrafted free agent out of Washington.

However, he’s never played in a regular season game, and the thought of him being thrown into the fire at this point may not be ready for Cincinnati. Browning has good movement and is probably a trait that Jack Taylor likes. — Dehner
