UPDATE (10:10 PM): It appears Burrow will not start the second half and he’s unlikely to return to the game. Bengals HC Zac Taylor says “you will probably not see Joe Burrow the rest of the game,” per Amazon sideline reporter Kaylee Hartung.
Burrow has officially been ruled out by the team. Jake Browning will take over the rest of the game.
Our original story is below.
Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow has apparently suffered a right wrist injury sometime during Thursday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. Seemingly playing through it during tonight’s game, he finally got checked out by trainers late in the first half before jogging to the locker room.
Here’s a clip of Burrow clutching his hand after throwing this pass.
It’s unclear how or when Burrow suffered the injury and whether it was something he dealt with before the game or during it. A video captured this shot of Burrow appearing to wear a brace on his right wrist/hand arriving to the game.
Before exiting, he had completed 11-of-17 passes for 101 yards and one touchdown, giving Cincinnati a 10-7 lead over Baltimore (Update: the Ravens are back up 14-10).
Burrow was spotted on the sideline unable to throw, frustrated as he walked off the field. The injury, of course, is to his throwing wrist.
Here’s another look at Burrow in considerable pain as he attempted to throw this football.
The Bengals are officially calling him questionable to return with a wrist injury. Jake Browning is the team’s backup quarterback. He has thrown one career pass.
Pittsburgh faces Cincinnati in Week 12 so this injury is certainly one to monitor. The Steelers will already face one backup quarterback this weekend in Cleveland’s Dorian Thompson-Robinson, replacing Deshaun Watson, out for the season with a fractured shoulder.
It’s been an injury-filled game between the Bengals and Ravens. Baltimore TE Mark Andrews suffered a painful-looking ankle injury earlier in the first half and was ruled out of the game, reportedly on crutches. QB Lamar Jackson also briefly examined with an ankle injury of his own, though he returned without missing a snap.
We’ll update Burrow’s situation throughout the night.
UPDATE (9:49 PM): In non-Burrow news, it appears Bengals starting DT B.J. Hill has suffered a non-contact injury. He has started all nine games this season, recording four sacks.
And CB Cameron Taylor-Britt has been ruled out with a left quad injury.
