Joe Burrow downplays knee injury despite noticeable limp
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow did not look healthy following Sunday’s Super Bowl LVI loss, but he refused to make a big deal out of it.
Burrow suffered an apparent injury to his right knee on a fourth quarter sack, but did not miss any time and never came out of the game. He told the media following the loss that there was no way he was coming out, but conceded that he would get the knee checked out upon returning to Cincinnati.
Joe Burrow said he'll get his knee checked out when they get back to Cincinnati. "I wasn't coming out."

Even after the game, Burrow was clearly in some pain. The Bengals quarterback could be seen limping while exiting the stadium.
