Burrow’s Bengals Battle: Overcoming Setbacks in a Powerful Clash Against Ravens

Bengals’ Burrow

After leaving during the second quarter, Burrow did not come back into the game. In the locker room after the game, he was observed sporting a sling.

Joe Burrow, the quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, was hurt in the first quarter of the game against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday night. Coach Zac Taylor confirmed that the Bengals lost 34-20.

Prior to throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Ja’Marr Chase, Taylor said that Burrow appeared to be in significant discomfort following an apparent injury to his arm early in the game. Regretfully, Burrow’s final performance of the evening transpired during this.

As Taylor put it, “It felt like he got hit in the arm.” “He went down early in the game, and then he felt it on that touchdown pass.”

Taylor didn’t know anything more about Burrow’s condition right after the game.

When exactly Burrow had problems with his arm is still unknown. Burrow squatted down deep on the field after throwing a touchdown pass to Chase, even though no Ravens players made contact with him. Burrow returned to the game following a quick stop by the team’s medical tent and a few minutes on the sidelines.

Burrow kept dropping the ball to the ground at the conclusion of his throwing motion while trying to warm up with light throws. Once more, he collapsed to the ground before trying another throw.

After this series, he hurried over to the visiting locker room.

For 101 yards and one touchdown pass, Burrow completed 11 of 17 passes. In place of him, backup quarterback Jake Browning completed 8 of 14 passes for 68 yards. Ja’Marr Chase, a wide receiver, caught a late touchdown pass.

Burrow had protective gear on his arm prior to the game, suggesting that he had a prior injury. Throughout the week, Burrow’s injury went unreported, and Taylor was unaware of any arm problems before now.

“This was the first time I saw anything about it,” Taylor explained.

In spite of the loss, Taylor was pleased with Burrow’s performance during the match.
View his performance from the first half,” Taylor remarked. “He did everything we needed him to do.”

As Cincinnati needed to overcome a 21-10 deficit and get ready for Browning to win the game, center Ted Karras said that the halftime conversation was centered on adjustments.

“No panic, just making adjustments, figuring out what we’re going to bring in the second half,” said Karras. “It wasn’t explicitly stated that something needed to be activated to win the game.”

Browning entered as a high-leverage representative on Thursday, his first game as an NFL player. Until this year, when he earned a backup role in training camp and outperformed Trevor, Browning, a Washington free agent who was unused in 2019, had been a member of Cincinnati’s practice squad Siemian.

In the season’s opening week against the Cleveland Browns, a 24-3 loss, Browning made his lone prior regular-season appearance for Cincinnati. He entered the game late.

But when called upon, Browning was relieved. He was still ready for his chance to play in a game for Burrow.

“I didn’t feel like I was out of place or anything like that,” Browning stated. However, it was different to actually be there and experience it. I’ve been waiting for a chance to play after many enjoyable years on practice teams.”
Taylor stated that other than the two seconds of ambiguity surrounding the extent of Burrow’s injury, there was no further information available regarding the severity of the arm injury. Other than the two seconds of uncertainty, Taylor became aware of the arm problem early in the game. Taylor thinks there was no effect on the team’s morale when Burrow left the game.

“I didn’t feel for a second that the air was out of our sails or anything,” Taylor said. “I felt like those guys were locked in and fighting through the downs.”

With Thursday’s victory, the Ravens were able to sweep the Bengals in the season series and earn an 8-3 record; Cincinnati is currently positioned last in the division. They have a difficult postseason ascent ahead of them without having to worry about Burrow’s condition.
Despite Burrow’s injury, wide receiver Tyler Boyd stressed that the team must come together.

Boyd said, “We get really hurt by it.” “He’s our team’s best player.
We simply need to remain organized, keep going, and go out there and do whatever we can to play for Jake.”
