It looks like the Bengals will have Ryan Finley at quarterback for the rest of Sunday’s game against the Washington Football Team and he will need to author a comeback if the Bengals are going to win the game.

Burrow hurt his left leg when he got hit low by a Washington defender and one of his own blockers on a third-down incompletion and Washington took over at their 45-yard-line after a punt. The Football Team would need just five plays to get into the end zone.

Antonio Gibson ran three times for 38 yards and Alex Smith capped the drive with a three-yard touchdown pass to Steven Sims.

It was Smith’s first touchdown pass of the afternoon and the Football Team now leads 14-9 in the third quarter.
