CelebnSports247.com reports that once the game was over, Joe Burrow said it was time to fully tend to his injuries.
The Cincinnati Bengals announced after the game that Burrow was going to a local hospital to be evaluated for a throat contusion.
According to reports, Joe Burrow was having trouble speaking and did not talk to the media following the loss to the Packers.
Here is what we’ve learned per a source with knowledge of the situation:
The Bengals believe Burrow was poked in the throat at some point during the game. The injury didn’t happen when he took a big hit on a running play and slammed his head into the turf.
It’s unknown whether the poke is believed to have happened deliberately.
It’s unclear at what point Burrow suffered the throat contusion, but he never missed a snap. Cincinnati Bengals wideout Ja’Marr Chase wants to see No. 9 cool it with putting his body at some much risk and slide more.
Chase said, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com:
He did it late in the game, right? Yeah, he knows how to slide. He’s just hard-headed…I told him don’t scare me like that again. I told him, ‘Slide. You need to start sliding.’
