However, they had a sigh of relief when the second-year quarterback was able to finish the game.
Unfortunately, they did not get the result they wanted as they lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the dying minutes of the game.
With the season over, Burrow will have much time to let the injury heal.
Luckily, he doesn’t need surgery to recover because Bengals head coach Zac Taylor revealed the injury he suffered.

Taylor shared that the Burrow suffered and played through a sprained MCL during the last Super Bowl.
While it’s still painful, the former LSU standout endured the pain and nearly led the Bengals to victory.
His willpower through adversity is remarkable and he’s done it several times throughout his career.
Playing With A Chip On His Shoulder
Burrow will be able to recover through the physical toll the Rams defense laid on him.
After all, he always rises over adversity by putting up fantastic performances.
When the Ohio State Buckeyes deemed him not good enough, he transferred and won a National Championship.
He led the Bengals to the playoffs even if he was sacked 51 times in the regular season.
He also had consecutive games of at least 400 passing yards after learning that he didn’t make the AFC’s Pro Bowl roster.
In the postseason, he led Cincinnati to their third Super Bowl despite enduring nine sacks against the Tennessee Titans.
Burrow always rises to the occasion thanks to his tenacity, determination, and unmatched passing accuracy.
Playing through a sprained MCL means that he wouldn’t want to let his team down.
He will come back stronger and better than ever in his third year in the NFL.NEXT: NFL World Reacts To The Zac Taylor News
