CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was carted off the field at training camp Thursday afternoon.

According to FOX19 NOW’s Jeremy Rauch, who was there, Burrow rolled out to his right and grabbed his right calf.

Jeremy said it looked like a lower leg injury.

ESPN reports that Head Coach Zac Taylor said Burrow suffered a strained calf.

FOX19 NOW’s Sports Director Joe Danneman says Taylor said it was not a scripted play when Burrow was injured.

It happened around 4 p.m. during training camp when the team was practicing 11-on-11 drills, Jeremy said.

Burrow has been at training camp since the rookies took to the field on July 26.

When he was carted back to the Bengals locker room, Burrow gave a thumbs up to the crowd, Jeremy said.

It was a non-contact injury and the quarterback was able to get up on his own power with a little bit of help.

The leg was wrapped when Burrow was carted off the field and taken to the Bengals’ locker room.

We likely won’t know until later today or early tomorrow any test results.

FOX19 NOW’s Betsy Ross says there is time for Burrow to heal before the season begins. He skipped preseason last year to heal from his appendix surgery.

It is a little more than six weeks - 45 days- until the Bengals season opener.

The second Burrow went down Jeremy says there was an audible gasp from the fans at training camp.

Joe Danneman says the players seem hopeful and the mood in the locker room seemed like any other day.

The Enquirer’s Charlie Goldsmith spoke to Ja’Marr Chase.

Here is the timeline of Joe Burrow’s injuries:

  • November 2022: Knee injury (Torn ACL/MCL)
  • July 2022: Appendicitis
  • February 2022: Knee injury (Sprained MCL)
  • December 2021: Hand injury (Dislocated Finger)

The Bengals still have not reached a deal on a contract extension with Burrow.
