Is Joe Burrow injured?
That’s what many are wondering after the Bengals quarterback appeared to be wearing a black sleeve or brace on his throwing hand in a since-deleted video the team posted on X, according to WCPO9 in Cincinnati.
Burrow was seen with something wrapped around his right hand while getting off the team bus in Baltimore, where the Bengals will take on the Ravens during “Thursday Night Football” on Prime Video.
Another close-up photo showed the 26-year-old signal caller carrying an iPad in his clearly taped/braced right hand while he appeared to exit the team plane.
The Bengals have not reported that Burrow is injured.
The star quarterback is believed to have a clean bill of health after he dealt with a calf injury at the start of the season, which has since healed.
The Bengals are coming off a tough loss to the Texans, 30-27, at home last Sunday, their only setback in their last five games.
Bengals defensive end Trey Hendrickson is no longer on the injury report after he reportedly suffered a hyperextended knee when Texans wideout Noah Brown fell into him at the end of Sunday’s game.

He is expected to play against the Ravens (7-3) on Thursday night, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.
The Bengals (5-4) will be without wide receiver Tee Higgins (hamstring) and defensive end Sam Hubbard (ankle) due to injuries when they look to avoid being swept by the Ravens.
Baltimore beat Cincinnati, 27-24, in Week 2, and another Bengals loss could make it quite hard for them to win the AFC North for a third straight year.
