NFL reportedly clears Bengals after Joe Burrow injury disclosure probe

Dec 9, 2023

With star quarterback Joe Burrow officially out for the season and recovering from wrist surgery, the Cincinnati Bengals are no longer being investigated by the NFL for failing to place him on the injury report in Week 11.

The league reviewed medical records, studied practice footage and found no violations in their probe, Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports reported Saturday. The NFL also interviewed medical personnel, who reportedly confirmed the Bengals didn't break any rules of the league's injury report policy.

Burrow grabbed his wrist in pain during the second quarter of a Nov. 16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. When the 26-year-old didn't return to the game, questions began to circulate about a video of Burrow getting off the team bus that showed a brace on his right hand. The issue was seemingly fueled as the Bengals posted and quickly deleted the video. Burrow eventually addressed questions about the brace, saying it's common for players to wear compression sleeves preventatively during travel.
