Bengals QB Joe Burrow won’t need surgery for MCL sprain
Joe Burrow, Cincinnati’s top quarterback, won’t have to go through surgery for his MCL sprain following the tough loss to the Rams in Super Bowl LVI.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who is known by several nicknames, will not require surgery for the MCL sprain he sustained in the Super Bowl LVI game against the L.A. Rams.
Burrow was noticeably limping after being sacked for the seventh time with 11:38 left in the fourth quarter of the 23-20 defeat to Los Angeles.
Bengals coach Zac Taylor said Wednesday that Burrow won’t need surgery for the pinky finger that was dislocated late in the season either, but he will need proper rest for his bodily injuries.
“Joe had the sprained MCL, and that’s really a re-aggravation of something he did back in December,” Taylor said. “But he’s a tough guy, he played through it. Rest is going to be the best thing for him. So that part’s encouraging. So, again, he’s going to get some much-needed rest here these next couple of weeks and expect him to come back fully healthy.”
Best of Burrow
The 25-year-old completed 22 of 33 passes for 263 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions against the Rams. Burrow returned from a torn ACL & MCL in 2021, earned the ‘Comeback Player of the Year’, and led the Bengals to a 10-7 record.
