The word of the week for Bengals fans and Burrow’s fantasy managers will be “re-aggravation” as he attempts to get right ahead of a suddenly consequential game against the Rams. He reportedly tweaked the same calf that held him out of the majority of training camp in the fourth quarter on Sunday, and there’s been speculation that he has been playing at less than 100% health to open the season. Even in the games he’s played, Burrow has been incredibly disappointing and the rest of the Cincy offense has suffered because of it. The trajectory of the Bengals offense for the rest of the season depends solely on the level of play – and at this point, the availability – of Joe Burrow. The bad news: ESPN’s Adam Schefter says it’s “fair to wonder” if Burrow will be able to suit up for Week 3.
