During what would end up as a Bengals loss to the Packers, Joe Burrow made an attempt to run for the first down marker and didn’t slide. That decision left him down on the ground for several minutes as Paul Brown Stadium held their collective breath.

Fortunately, Burrow popped right back up and jogged to the sidelines. He went into the blue medical tent and returned to the game, playing for the duration of regulation and all of overtime.

After the game, however, a report emerged that Burrow was taken to a Cincinnati hospital to get checked out for what appeared to be a throat contusion. It was scary news for Bengals fans and we all hoped for the best for Joey Franchise.

Luckily, it appears that Burrow will be okay.

Joe Burrow was released from the hospital on Sunday night.

Ian Rapoport said that Burrow “should be OK” and this is great news moving forward. It was a scary sight when he appeared to be injured on the run so seeing him get back up and return to the game allowed Who Dey Nation to breathe a major sigh of relief. When this news popped up, however, it was back to being anxious and hoping that QB1 would be okay.

Football is more than a game so we’re all obviously hoping that Burrow is okay for his own sake. From the football standpoint, though, he is the future of this team and without him, a road to the playoffs is much more difficult, maybe even impossible, so it’s important for him to be healthy.

Fortunately, Burrow is good to go, and let’s hope the offensive line can continue to protect him for the rest of the season.
