Everyone of us wants Joe Burrow to play football and play it well . Injuries have had a large part in not letting that happen.
After completing its inquiry, the NFL declared that the AFC North team, the Cincinnati Bengals, had not broken any rules regarding injuries.
The Bengals “were fully compliant” with the league’s injury report requirements ahead to the team’s Week 11 Thursday night game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports. The Bengals will therefore not face any penalties from the league.

In the game, Joe Burrow tore a ligament in his right throwing hand’s wrist, forcing him to miss the whole season. Burrow was spotted sporting a wrist sleeve prior to the game, which raised questions about whether the team was trying to hide a possible injury.
Before going down with an injury in Week 11, the top overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft completed 11 of 17 throws for 101 yards and a touchdown. With 2,309 throwing yards and 15 touchdowns versus six interceptions, Burrow’s impressive season came to an end.
