Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow aggravated an existing calf injury during a 27-24 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Burrow limped to the sideline in the final minutes of the game and used a massage gun to keep the calf loose.
The potential injury came after a 4-yard pass to wide receiver Tee Higgins closed the gap in the score.
According to head coach Zac Taylor, if the Bengals had gained possession, Burrow would have been back in the game for the remaining minutes.
However, the Ravens got two first downs to maintain their lead.
Although he was able to play in recent weeks, his July 27 injury had already kept him out of action during the preseason and the majority of training camp.
Burrow got off to a slow start to the season, throwing for just 82 yards in a 24-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns in Week 1.
“When your quarterback misses camp, it’s hard to get going quickly,” Burrow told reporters after the game.
When asked if the injury would affect the remainder of the 2023 season, Burrow said: “We’ll see. »
“Give it a few nights, a few nights, and we’ll see.” We’ll go from there,” Burrow said.
The Bengals will face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3, but the jury is still out on whether Burrow will be on the field with them.
The Bengals’ current backup quarterback is Jake Browning, who has been with the organization since the 2021 season.
Browning, 27, went undrafted by Washington in 2019 and threw one pass during his NFL career.
