Shark Bites

Bengals HC Zac Taylor was non-committal on QB Joe Burrow's status for next Monday night's game vs. the Rams, saying it's "hard to say" at this point if Burrow will be available. The Cincinnati Enquirer's Kelsey Conway noted that Burrow was walking around the locker room "without a noticeable limp" and with no boot on his leg on Monday. We'll keep a close eye on his status throughout this week.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow will undergo surgery on his right wrist on Monday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Burrow is expected to make a "full recovery for the 2024 season," Rapoport adds. Burrow's 2023 campaign was haunted by injuries: first a calf, then the wrist. He reminded us of his upside with a brilliant three-game stretch from Week 8 to 10, though, racking up 978 yards and seven TDs on a 74% completion rate and 8.4 yards per attempt. It doesn't sound like the wrist will be a concern in 2024 and beyond. There could be a buying opportunity right now on Burrow in dynasty leagues.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his wrist that will require surgery, HC Zac Taylor announced Friday. It ends a frustrating season that saw Burrow battle through a calf injury for the first six weeks, get hot coming off the bye, and then suffer this wrist injury. We'll look for further details on Burrow's rehab plan and whether his 2024 season will be impacted. His absence the rest of this season leaves Cincinnati with QBs Jake Browning and A.J. McCarron (practice squad). Browning was abysmal in relief of Burrow in Baltimore on Thursday night, completing eight of 14 passes for 68 yards (4.9 YPA). It's about the biggest QB downgrade imaginable and awful news for Bengals pass catchers. The offense figures to lean more on the running game going forward, but we still wouldn't consider this an upgrade for RB Joe Mixon because the Bengals will struggle to sustain drives and score points under Browning.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said after Thursday night's loss to the Ravens that QB Joe Burrow is believed to have a sprained right wrist. "Fell on it early in the game and then felt it on the touchdown pass," Taylor said. Burrow was spotted with a wrap on that wrist prior to Thursday's game but was not listed on the Week 11 injury report. He had a "multi-layered" wrap on the wrist after the game, according to ESPN's Ben Baby. Burrow is scheduled for an MRI on Monday, so we should get more details on the injury over the next 24 hours. Stay tuned. QB Jake Browning mustered just 68 yards on 8-of-14 passing (4.9 YPA) in relief of Burrow in Baltimore.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow hurt his right hand or elbow in the second quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens. The TV broadcast showed Burrow trying to throw on the sidelines but unable to grip the ball. He immediately headed back to the locker room. We'll update Burrow's status when we know more. QB Jake Browning is Cincinnati's backup.

Update: Burrow is officially questionable to return with a wrist injury.

Update: Burrow has been ruled out. He's on the sidelines without any protective gear on that right wrist.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 31 of 44 passes for 348 yards with 2 TDs in Week 9 vs. the Bills. It’s evident at this point that he’s over that right calf injury that slowed him down early in the year. Over the past four games, Burrow ranks fourth in passing yards per game (283.2), third in fantasy points per game (21.8), and first with 2.5 passing TDs per game. The former No. 1 overall pick can now be safely treated as a high-end QB1 regardless of matchup.
