Joe Burrow was poked in throat

USA TODAY Sports

A surprising development happened after Sunday’s overtime win by the Packers over the Bengals. Cincinnati quarterback Joe Burrow was taken to a local hospital with a possible throat contusion.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Bengals believe Burrow was poked in the throat at some point during the game. The injury didn’t happen when he took a big hit on a running play and slammed his head into the turf.

It’s unknown whether the poke is believed to have happened deliberately.

Early indications are this this is merely precautionary, and that Burrow said before he was examined at the hospital that he feels fine.

Throat injuries can quickly become serious, if any type of swelling occurs inside the trachea.

  1. WOW!!! Just lame excuses coming out of Cincinnati, just admit that you all were in awe of 12 today and just stop these lame excuses.

  2. Gee, football is a non contact sport and nothing like that ever happens. LOL, you people are outa control.

  3. As the league is seriously concerned with fairness and fair play of all teams I’m sure there will be a thorough investigation, snicker. Snicker snicker

  4. That is a very effective and dangerous move in hand to hand combat or fighting in general. A glance and redirected and unintentional hit is of course you’d hope much more likely. But if not, that’s some dirty bleep. I saw that once in a hockey game and things went nutso. If you’re shorter than the person it’s actually very easy. In the purely hypothetical if it is somehow found to be on purpose that’s a suspension not a fine and should be multiple games. You can crush the esophagus and be in very very serious waters and endanger someone’s life.

  5. As a packers fan that is also a Bengals fan, I’m gonna go ahead and apologize for the idiots acting like this is an excuse for Burrow or the Bengals. Burrow played an awesome game, especially considering he apparently had an Injury that required a hospital visit. In crunch time, both him and Rodgers were exactly what you’d want them to be. Even without the missed kicks it was a really good and closely played game. The right team won, the Bengals couldn’t take advantage of the missed kicks. Anyone else think mcphersons kick would have had the distance to go 70 yards? It hit 10’ up the post from 57. I’m glad he’s a Bengali, even though he missed the 45 yarder

    Cheap hit. Nobody is surprised

    Cheap hit? Would you please describe which play that cheap hit took place??

  7. That’s what happens when your moron head coach wants to get his QB killed. Averaging over y yards a carry and we throw the ball a million times behind a crap offensive line. Please fire Zach Taylor he is horrible. At the very least take away his play calling. The guy is a loser.

    I love Joe, but he threw two horrible interceptions. Tee Higgins had two inexcusable drops. Kicker missed two game winning kicks which were long but within his range. But go ahead and blame Zac for the loss.
