Asked Sunday after the game if he thought the calf could nag him throughout the 2023 season, Burrow had little to offer.
He was a little more forthcoming about the time missed leading to subpar play.
Burrow had perhaps his worst career outing in Week 1, throwing for just 82 yards in a 24-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns. His play and box score improved against the Ravens as he threw for 222 yards and his first two TDs of the season. It still wasn’t to the Pro Bowler’s satisfaction, though.
“When your quarterback misses camp, it’s tough to start fast,” he said.
Whether or not Burrow’s calf slows him throughout the season remains to be seen, but the Bengals and their QB1 are limping away from Sunday at 0-2.
