Steelers won't face Burrow, Bengals QB out for the season


First Deshaun Watson, now Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is OUT for the season.

Cincinnati head coach Zac Taylor confirmed Burrow tore a ligament during Thursday night’s loss to Baltimore.

Burrow threw a touchdown in the second quarter but grabbed his wrister after.

He tried to throw a pass on the sidelines but couldn’t.

Burrow suffered a calf injury in the preseason and didn’t seem himself the first couple weeks, but started returning to his normal form as the season continued.

He was 5-5 this season with 2,309 yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions.

The Steelers will likely face Cincinnati back-up quarterback Jake Browning.

He went 8-for-15 against the Ravens with one touchdown and QB rating of 87.6.

He signed as an undrafted free agent in 2019 with the Minnesota Vikings.

There is also a question on why Burrow wasn’t on the Bengals’ injury report before the game.

Video showed what appeared to be a brace on Burrow’s wrist/hand.

Whatever the result of that issue, the real issue for the Bengals is their star quarterback, who took them to a Super Bowl is now out until 2024.

After the Steelers play the Deshaun Watson-less Browns this Sunday, they’ll play the Bengals in Cincinnati on November 26.

The Bengals come to Pittsburgh on December 23.
