Joe Burrow suffers torn ligament, done for 23

Bengals starting QB Joe Burrow is done for the season after suffering a torn ligament in his right wrist.

Burrow suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Bengals loss to the Ravens on Thursday night. The team believes the injury happened on the play before Burrow threw a 4-yard touchdown pass.

Joe Burrow was understandably deflated on Friday. “It’s tough,” Burrow said. “You work so hard for seasons and moments like these. Whenever you get hurt and it ends early, it’s tough to handle. That’s a part of the game. I felt a pop in the middle of the throw. I tried to give it a go but couldn’t get it done.”

WITH JOE BURROW DONE, WHAT NEXT FOR BENGALS?

“It kills you to watch somebody have to go through this, you know, several times now,” Bengals Head Coach Zac Taylor said.

The NFL is investigating whether Burrow had the injury prior to the game and if the Bengals failed to report the injury on the injury report. Burrow downplayed that story “It’s not uncommon for guys to wear a compression sleeve on a plane because when you go up to that altitude, things can swell up. Football, you have a lot of bumps and bruises. This is a completely new injury.”

Jake Browning will be the Bengals QB in Joe Burrow’s stead.

“He’s a big part of this team obviously,” Browning said. “But I’m not going to hide the fact that I’m excited for my opportunity. I think everybody in here, including Joe, kind of knows that.”
