Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow will miss the remainder of the 2023 NFL season due to a wrist injury, head coach Zac Taylor announced on Friday.
Taylor said Burrow likely will need surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist after an MRI on Friday morning revealed the severity of the injury.
The Bengals QB had exited their 34-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the second quarter. He bent over in obvious pain after throwing a four-yard touchdown to Joe Mixon.
Burrow said he felt a pop in his wrist on the TD pass but was in discomfort before that play, and said after the game that “everything that I’ve seen so far is that surgery is going to be needed”.
The NFL is investigating the team’s reporting of Burrow’s injury status going into the game.
