Bengals unsure about QB Joe Burrow (calf) for Week 3

Bengals coach Zac Taylor on Joe Burrow's availability for Monday Night Football against the Rams: Hard to say.

Related players: Jake Browning

Fantasy Impact: 

Burrow reinjured his calf in Week 2 and reports say he's still sore as of Monday. The good news is, the Bengals play on Monday night, so there is potentially extra time for Burrow to get back on the field for Week 3. The bad news is it puts owners in a bind heading into the weekend not knowing his status. Browning would get the start if Burrow can't go. The Bengals do host the Rams so it's a potentially favorable matchup at least if owners are forced to start Browning. The Eagles and Bucs also play on Monday night, so it's possible QBs like Baker Mayfield and Matthew Stafford are still on your wire and could serve as last-minute backup plans if Burrow is a late scratch.
