Thursday, 4:35 p.m. ET update: Bengals HC Zac Taylor confirms it’s a calf injury for QB Joe Burrow.
Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow went down with a calf injury during Thursday’s training camp practice, Bengals beat reporter Kelsey Conway reports. Pro Football Focus tweeted a video of the play he suffered the injury on afterward, and it doesn’t look good.
Minutes later, Conway tweeted a video of the cart coming out for the Steelers rival quarterback, set to enter his fourth season with the team in 2023.

Conway noted that Burrow had been wearing a sleeve on his calf prior to the injury.
It would be as unfortunate time as ever, as Burrow awaits a massive contract extension of his own, likely to soon be the highest-paid quarterback in the league.
