Bengals’ Taylor says Burrow sprained wrist during loss to Ravens
BALTIMORE, Md. (WXIX) - The Cincinnati Bengals went to Baltimore and left without a win and without their star quarterback Joe Burrow.
Burrow left Thursday’s 34-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the second quarter with a wrist injury.
After throwing a touchdown pass to Joe Mixon to give Cincinnati the lead, Burow immediately began favoring his hand. He went to the medical tent on the sideline, then to the locker room. He never went back into the game.
“It looked like he sprained his wrist,” coach Zac Taylor said. “He hurt it earlier in the game and he felt it on that touchdown pass.”
Taylor was asked how long Burrow was out - he said he had no idea.
