Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals couldn't handle the offensive onslaught from Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13. Still, this game came with a silver lining after Cincinnati's rising star quarterback went down with a finger injury.

Burrow managed to play through the pain and log 100% of the offensive snaps, but it was revealed after the game he suffered a dislocated finger.

The former No. 1 overall pick played through his pain on Sunday and is determined to continue playing through the injury in coming weeks.

Joe Burrow Injury Update

NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Burrow does not intend to miss any time with this dislocated finger. Obviously time will tell if that rings true, but this is a major sigh of relief for head coach Zac Taylor and his staff.

The Bengals will have to monitor Burrow's pain levels moving forward but are also set on winning games. Cincinnati currently sits as the seventh seed in the AFC playoff picture with their 7-5 overall record.

Cincinnati stays home for a Week 14 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers. Currently, FanDuel Sportsbook has the Bengals listed as 1-point home underdogs.
