As all Cincinnati Bengals fans sit on pins and needles, waiting for an update on franchise quarterback Joe Burrow’s calf, each Twitter notification gets more tension-filled than the last.
Will he be ready Monday night? How long will this linger?
While most of that is still unknown, we did see a positive update from NFL insider Mike Garafolo on Wednesday, who says Burrow has been improving since Sunday’s setback.
Indications are Joe Burrow has been feeling better the last two days than he was on Sunday. As @RapSheet notes, no injury report today because the #Bengals play on Monday. The extra day will surely help. https://t.co/royp7NCKmo— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 20, 2023
Burrow told reporters he “tweaked” the calf in the Week 2 game against the Baltimore Ravens, and all of Who Dey Nation has been waiting in suspense ever since. The positive update from Garafolo should put some minds at ease.
As he mentions, an extra day of rest can help in Burrow’s situation. With Aaron Donald and the Los Angeles Rams coming to town, Burrow being as close to 100% as possible is very important.
As practices ramp up for the week and players and coaches start talking to the media, we may get more insight into where Burrow is, but as of now, we will take this positive report and run with it.
We will have more updates on Burrow as they become available ahead of Bengals vs. Rams.
