Even on the Day They Lost Joe Burrow, the Bengals Saw What They Have in Him
Joe Burrow says we won’t see him until next year, but he’s already shown a lot. Plus, thrilling Colts and Titans wins set the stage for an AFC South showdown, what the Browns have done differently this year, Taysom Hill gets the job done, a Q&A with Cooper Kupp and more.
Joe Burrow didn’t have much to say—you don’t need an overactive imagination to figure out why—as he was loaded onto a cart near the Bengals’ end zone at FedEx Field on Sunday, amid a crush of his Cincinnati teammates, plus a few old Ohio State teammates of his playing for Washington, who’d come over to check on him.
By then, he knew, and they did too. No one had to wait for the MRI. The first overall pick’s rookie year was over. And, as a result, there really wasn’t much to say at that point.
“He wasn’t really in a mood to talk anybody [on the field],” Cincinnati coach Zac Taylor said, after getting back to Ohio late Sunday night. “I can promise you that.”
