The Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ligament in his right wrist. While Bengals coach Zac Taylor explained that initial information showed that Burrow may be able to make a full recovery, it is still unclear as to whether he will need surgery.
Burrow was injured during Thursday’s 34-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The quarterback fell on his wrist after he was hit by Ravens defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. While able to make a touchdown pass on the next play, Burrow subsequently went down in pain, unable to play the remainder of the game.
“I felt a pop in the middle of the throw,” Burrow explained. “I tried to give it a go but couldn’t get it done.” Unsure of the seriousness of the injury, the Bengals medical team was able to confirm on Friday that Burrow’s setback was a severe one. Still, Burrow explained that he will remain at his teammates’ side as they continue the season.
