Bengals star QB Joe Burrow checked out fine and should be OK, source said.
It was as the early games were finishing when we started to learn about Burrow's trip to a local hospital after a potential throat contusion. Reports say he was having trouble talking. Rapoport went on to say Burrow was released from the hospital Sunday night. It looks like he should be OK to play in Week 6.
CIN QB Joe Burrow - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 at Baltimore
Joe Burrow has now thrown multiple touchdowns in every game this season. Last week, he was efficient with 271 passing yards, three TD passes and 1 INT. You could say he hasn't had a 'bad' game yet from a fantasy standpoint. He seems totally recovered from last season's injury.
It will be a tough matchup on the road at Baltimore who is ranked 8th in aFPA to quarterbacks. Burrow struggled in his only meeting with the Ravens last season throwing for 183 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception.
The Bengals offense has played well, but it could be a different story against a defense that just shut down Justin Herbert. Start Burrow with caution for Week 7, but he only ranks a low-end QB1 and there could be a better option available.
