The Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Kansas City Chiefs on a last-second field goal which also won them AFC North title. Although that good news came along with some concerning news. As that field goal was happening, star quarterback Joe Burrow was limping off the field holding his right knee.

Joe Burrow Injury Update

The extent of Burrow's injury is not yet known, but it's never a good sign to see your starting QB holding his knee and limping.

Burrow has been a major catalyst in the Bengals' turnaround and ultimate division title this season, something they haven't done since 2015.

The second-year QB threw for 446 yards and 4 touchdowns to earn a comeback win over KC on Sunday.

There is hope this isn't a major injury, and clinching the division could give the Bengals a great opportunity to rest Burrow in Week 18 if he needs it.

This is definitely a situation to keep an eye on and will be updated here once more concrete information is available.
