Report: Bengals QB Joe Burrow Poked in Throat, Taken to Hospital



Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was taken to the hospital with a throat contusion after his team’s overtime loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Burrow was poked in the throat at some point during the game, according to Pro Football Talk. He remained in the game and did not miss any time while the Bengals see-sawed with the Packers in a wild finish that involved several missed potentially game-winning field goals.

The Steelers don’t face the Bengals again until Week 12, but Burrow’s status is something to monitor as the 3-2 Bengals sit tied for second in the AFC North despite their loss, a half-game behind first-place Baltimore, which plays Monday night.
