Injury update on the QB

The backup of Joe Burrow could be Trevor Siemian who is the Bengals’ second-string quarterback. He has signed a one-year deal with the team. Until Burrow recovers, he could help the team during the practice sessions. 

But the best thing for the team will probably be the fast recovery of Burrow. He should also be able to join the team during the practice sessions in an attempt at keeping the spirits high. However, he should take his time with recovery as rushing things could end up making things worse for himself and the team.
