Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals made a startling turnaround this year. The team made it to Super Bowl LVI despite winning just six games in the previous two seasons combined. Joe Cool was a key cog in the system that played a key role in getting the team to the big game.
In the end, Aaron Donald and the Los Angeles Rams defense were too much to overcome. Matthew Stafford led a game-winning scoring drive with under two minutes left that Burrow was unable to match. Joe Burrow wasn’t nearly at 100% as he tried to pull off the miracle.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported via Twitter that Burrow suffered and played through an MCL injury during the Super Bowl. In the second half, Burrow could be seen visibly limping after tweaking the knee during a play. The diagnosis, according to Bengals coach Zac Taylor, was an MCL sprain.
“Bengals’ HC Zac Taylor said QB Joe Burrow QB suffered and played through a sprained MCL during Super Bowl LVI.”
The painful knee ailment didn’t stop Joe Burrow from going full-steam ahead. The Bengals fell short of a championship, but Joe has vowed to use the defeat as fuel for the rest of his career. A knee injury couldn’t keep a good QB down.
The Bengals are hoping to make it back to the Super Bowl in 2023. The team recently rewarded Zac Taylor for the remarkable reversal of fortunes with a contract extension. Joe Burrow will set out to heal his knee and get ready to give it another go next year.
