Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor gave an update on quarterback Joe Burrow’s injury after Super Bowl 56.
Super Bowl 56 between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams saw some big stars suffer injuries, such as wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and quarterback Matthew Stafford. Shortly after the Rams signal caller got injury, Joe Burrow grabbed his knee after taking a sack in the second half, but remained in the game. Cincinnati ended up losing 23-20 on a late touchdown reception by Cooper Kupp.
After the loss, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor provided an update on Burrow’s knee, saying that they will figure out what kind of injury he suffered at a later time.
Bengals: Zac Taylor provides update on Joe Burrow’s knee injury in Super Bowl 56
Burrow was under duress throughout the game, as he was sacked a total of seven times in the game, tying Roger Staubach for the Super Bowl record. But on one play in particular, Burrow got surrounded by Rams defenders, and cameras caught him clutching his knee. Yet, he was able to limp off the field.
Cincinnati’s second-year quarterback did not head to the medical tent, instead going to the bench to prepare for the team’s next offensive drive.
Burrow looked close to either tying the game or leading the Bengals to a game-winning touchdown on the final drive. Yet, they were stalled out midfield and Burrow threw an incompletion on fourth-and-one after getting chased by Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
In the game, Burrow completed 22-of-33 pass attempts for 263 yards and one touchdown.
Bengals fans will no doubt be keeping their eyes peeled for any updates on Burrow’s knee. Regardless of what happens, Burrow showed his toughness by returning to the game to help the team win their first Lombardi Trophy.
