The Cincinnati Bengals faced yet another setback as they suffered a tough loss against the Baltimore Ravens, marking a disappointing 0-2 start to the season. To make matters worse, star quarterback Joe Burrow sustained a calf injury during the game.
Burrow’s injury occurred when he tweaked his right calf on a play. The quarterback soldiered on for a while but eventually had to limp off the field. Bengals head coach Zac Taylor had plans to bring Burrow back into the game if the defense managed to get a stop, but unfortunately, that scenario never materialized.
As uncertainty looms over Burrow’s calf injury, questions arise about its impact on the rest of the season. Burrow himself expressed concern about his injury’s implications for his performance. However, despite the setback, he exhibited a relatively better performance in Week 2 compared to his previous game.
The Bengals seemed to improve in the second half, with Burrow showing signs of progress before tweaking his calf again. This prompted backup quarterback Jake Browning to warm up on the sideline, prepared to step in if Burrow proved unable to continue playing.
Burrow has mentioned his recovery from the calf injury consists of both good and bad days. In the days to come, the team and Burrow will be closely managing the injury and monitoring his progress.
On a positive note, the Bengals have an additional day of rest before their upcoming game against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night. This extra time can prove crucial for Burrow’s recovery. Their next scheduled practice is on Thursday at 1:30 p.m., giving Burrow and the coaching staff an opportunity to assess his condition further.
As the Bengals gear up for another challenging match, the team and fans alike hope for a swift and complete recovery for their talented quarterback. The Bib Theorists will keep a close eye on Burrow’s progress and provide updates on his condition as more information becomes available.
