Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is currently enjoying the best season of his career, ranking No. 3 in the odds go win the NFL MVP Award. He has the Bengals in second place (based on tiebreaker) in the AFC North at 9-4.

Joe Burrow Injury Update

As the team prepares for its Week 15 matchup, Burrow is all of a sudden listed on the injury report with a right elbow issue, despite being a full participant in practice on Wednesday.

It's never ideal to see your franchise quarterback pop up on the injury report, especially with an injury to his throwing elbow. Additionally, when something pops up this late in the week, it puts some doubt into everyone's mind, even if he is still participating in practice with the designation.

The Bengals go up against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 15, where Cincinnati is a 3.5-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
