The Cincinnati Bengals have suffered a devastating blow. It is one that they may not be able to recover from this season.
Their franchise quarterback Joe Burrow will miss the rest of the season. He suffered a wrist injury on Thursday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore, Maryland.
On Friday, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor revealed that Burrow suffered a torn ligament in his wrist. As a result, Burrow will miss the rest of the season.

The Bengals will now play with different signal callers for the rest of the season. The team is currently 5-5, including a two-game losing streak.
Before his injury, Burrow went 11 of 17 for 101 yards. He had one touchdown before departing with his injury in the 34-20 loss to the Ravens.
On the season, Burrow has gone 244 of 365 for 2,309 yards. He had 15 touchdown passes and six interceptions.
Barring any complications, Burrow should be good to go for the 2024 season.
The Bengals only had two quarterbacks on their depth chart. Jake Browning is expected to be the team’s starting quarterback moving forward.
Over the next couple of days, the team will likely sign a veteran to back up Browning, who came into the contest when Burrow went down. Browning went 8 of 14 for 68 yards and one touchdown against the Ravens.
