(93.7 The Fan/WGR 550) - It's a bad time to be a quarterback in the AFC North this week. First it was Deshaun Watson, now it's Joe Burrow.
During his Friday press conference with the Cincinnati media, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor confirmed that Burrow tore a ligament in his right wrist during Thursday night’s loss to Baltimore Ravens.
During the second quarter of Thursday's loss, Burrow threw a touchdown pass to running back Joe Mixon inside the Baltimore red zone, but immediately grabbed his wrist right after.
Burrow was shortly after seen trying to throw a pass along the sidelines, but was unable to even grip the football.
According to Burrow on Friday, he said he "felt a pop" in his wrist on the touchdown throw to Mixon.
Burrow suffered a calf injury very early in training camp for the Bengals, and didn’t seem himself for the first few weeks of the season. However, he really started returning to his normal form as the season continued.
The 26-year-old was 5-5 this season with 2,309 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions.
Now taking over for Cincinnati under center for the remainder of the season will be 27-year-old Jake Browning, who was an undrafted signee of the Minnesota Vikings in the 2019 NFL Draft out of the University of Washington.
During Thursday's loss in Baltimore, Browning went 8-of-15 with one touchdown and a quarterback rating of 87.6.
The 5-5 Bengals will next play the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Nov. 26 at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati.
