Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is a game-time decision for Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams. 

However, it appears he's on track to play, according to the Enquirer's Kelsey Conway.

Burrow reportedly will go through a workout this morning, but even if he plays on Monday he’s going to be dealing with pain in his injured calf. 

The Bengals come into this matchup at 0-2, and they can’t afford to drop another game – especially at home. If Burrow can play, it’s likely that he will be out there. 

Joe Burrow injury status for Week 3 game against Los Angeles Rams

Joe Burrow is questionable for Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams, but recent reports have showed optimism for him suiting up on Monday.

Best Cincinnati Bengals prop bet for Week 3 vs. Rams

Joe Mixon anytime touchdown scorer

Whether Joe Burrow plays or not in Week 3, Joe Mixon could be in line for a big game because of the quarterback’s injury. 

The Bengals running back hasn’t found the end zone yet this season, but he could be leaned on heavily this week depending upon who is under center. Even if Burrow suits up, the Bengals may want to run the ball more to keep him out of harm’s way. 

Mixon was one of the top backs in the NFL in terms of touches inside the 10-yard line last season, so he should dominate goal-line work for the Bengals this season as well.
