Some fans even said that it might be some fashion-related piece covering his wrist. However, the team later deleted the video confirming the rumors that Burrow is hiding an injury.

Joe Burrow weighs in on facing Ravens
Joe Burrow expressed the significance of the game against the Ravens, stating that both teams are aiming to win the division.
“It’s a big part of the year for both of us,” Burrow said. The quarterback emphasized that both teams are coming from a loss, and both are trying to win the division. He also added that both teams know each other, “We know them, they know us,” referring to their long-standing rivalry.
Burrow’s recent performance, despite recovering from a calf injury, showcased his capability, but critical mistakes in the last game led to a frustrating defeat.
The Bengals will be without key players, with receiver Tee Higgins out due to a hamstring injury and starting defensive end Sam Hubbard missing the game with an ankle problem. Hubbard’s absence in the last game contributed to Cincinnati’s defensive struggles against the run.
The Ravens QB Jackson who was recently gifted a rug by his fan, and Burrow, due to injuries, have faced each other only four times, with the Ravens winning three of those meetings. Lamar Jackson’s impressive performance this season, combining high pass completion and running ability, positions him as an MVP candidate.
The Bengals’ recent struggles, coupled with the Ravens’ strong home record in night games, add further intrigue to the upcoming game between the Bengals and the Ravens.
