In a setback for the Cincinnati Bengals, quarterback Joe Burrow experienced an apparent right wrist sprain during Thursday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens. 

Head coach Zac Taylor confirmed the injury, stating that Burrow fell on his wrist early in the game and felt discomfort during a touchdown pass.

Video footage from the Prime Video broadcast before the game revealed Burrow wearing a brace on his right hand/wrist, although he was not listed on the Bengals' injury report this week.

Coach Taylor expressed unawareness of any previous wrist injury. Burrow left the Week 11 matchup in the second quarter after a 4-yard touchdown throw to Joe Mixon. 

Despite returning to the sideline in the second half, he sported a beanie instead of a helmet. The discomfort was evident as Burrow, after his touchdown pass, bent over and later attempted throws on the sideline before heading to the locker room.

Backup quarterback Jake Browning stepped in for Burrow, completing 8-of-14 passes for 68 yards with a touchdown. Prior to his departure, Burrow had 11 completions on 17 attempts for 101 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions.

This injury follows Burrow's previous calf strain earlier in the year, which impacted his preseason and early-season performance. The Bengals had been on a four-game winning streak before a Week 10 loss to the Houston Texans. 

Now, with the concern over Burrow's wrist, the team faces another challenge in maintaining their momentum.
