UPDATE: Burrow is back on the field to start the third quarter, per Ben Baby.

Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow appeared to hurt his right leg late in the second quarter against the Steelers, according to Tyler Dragon. Burrow was seen limping to the locker room as the game went into halftime. Ryan Finley is his backup.

The Bengals’ offensive line has not a great job protecting Burrow, allowing two sacks and three quarterback hits. The first overall pick is completing 16-of-25 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown.
