Joe Burrow

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ligament in his right wrist. Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that Burrow will likely require surgery.

Burrow injured his wrist during the second quarter of Thursday night’s 34-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. However, the NFL is investigating why the team did not list Burrow on the injury report leading up to the game. The team posted a video on social media Wednesday of Burrow wearing what looked like a soft cast on his right hand. The post was later deleted.

It will be Jake Browning under center now for the 5-5 Bengals.

Michigan Football

A day after Michigan said it was dropping its case against the Big Ten and that Jim Harbaugh will serve his three-game suspension, the school announced the firing of linebackers coach Chris Partridge.

Per Yahoo Sports, the NCAA shared evidence with the school this week that suggests a Michigan booster might have at least partly provided funding for Connor Stalions and his advanced scouting. It also shared evidence that an assistant coach allegedly took part in destroying computer evidence once the scandal broke.

With all that, team 144 has a game to play on Saturday, as they head to Maryland to take on the Terrapins at Noon EST/9 am PST on FOX. Michigan vs. Everybody. Go Blue!

Bradley Beal and the Phoenix Suns

Phoenix Suns shooting guard Bradley Beal is out at least three weeks with a lower back strain. Beal, who came to the Suns via a trade with the Washington Wizards during the offseason, missed the first seven games of the season with the same injury.

Beal came back earlier this month for three games and was out on Wednesday. He averaged 17.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists in the three starts. The team said he will be reevaluated in three weeks. Get well soon!
