It seems that the Cincinnati Bengals and their standout quarterback Joe Burrow dodged a major setback on Thursday night.
Burrow exited the game against the Baltimore Ravens in the second quarter due to a wrist injury and did not make a return. According to information from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, head coach Zac Taylor informed reporters that Burrow suffered a wrist sprain.

Clearly frustrated on the sideline after leaving the game, Burrow was visibly struggling to grip the football. He completed 11 of 17 passes for 101 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions before Jake Browning took over. However, Browning managed only 68 passing yards in the Bengals’ 34-20 loss.
This defeat, marking Cincinnati’s second in a row, brings their record to 5-5 with seven games remaining. Meanwhile, the Ravens, now standing at 8-3, continue to hold the top spot in the AFC North for another week.
