The NFL are reportedly investigating the Cincinnati Bengals over why Joe Burrow was not listed on their injury report going into Thursday Night Football.
The star quarterback sat out the second half of their game against the Baltimore Ravens after suffering a wrist injury in the second quarter.
The 26-year-old was in clear discomfort after connecting a four-yard touchdown pass to Joe Mixon, which would be his final play of the game.
The Bengals removed social media posts from Wednesday night hinting that Burrow was dealing with the injury before the game.
A deleted video showed Burrow exiting the team bus in Baltimore while wearing a black sleeve/brace on his throwing hand.

Another picture showed Burrow getting off the team plane while holding an iPad on a clearly wrapped right hand.
A compliance issue with Burrow’s injury, if proven, could result in the Bengals getting fined or losing a draft pick.
Postgame, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said he was unaware of the injury before game day.
Taylor pointed out an early tackle in which Burrow landed on his wrist as the cause of the sprain.
‘It looked like he sprained his wrist,’ Taylor said. ‘Fell on it early in the game and then felt it on the touchdown pass.’

Burrow completed 11 of 17 passes for 101 yards and a touchdown before his early exit. In his absence, the Bengals ended up losing the game, 20-34.
‘That was the first time I saw anything about it,’ Taylor added.
Burrow is currently listed as questionable as the Bengals prepare to face the Pittsburgh Steelers on November 26.
