During their time together as teammates, non-verbal communication became an invaluable asset for quarterback Joe Burrow and receiver Ja’Marr Chase, as observed on Thursday.
Head coach Zac Taylor revealed that Burrow had to leave practice due to a calf injury, but there is no official update on the injury’s severity or Burrow’s status. Nevertheless, Chase shared his optimistic view with reporters about Burrow’s well-being.
“After practice,” Chase conveyed to Paul Dehner Jr. of TheAthletic.com, “we exchanged a nod, and I could tell he was going to be alright. Joe’s a resilient individual.”
Chase also mentioned that receiving the nod eased his concerns, even before seeing Burrow in the training room.
“I didn’t have many worries,” Chase expressed. “I have faith that he’ll be just fine.”
Certainly, the Bengals are fervently hoping that’s the case, as a long-term injury to Burrow would significantly jeopardize the team’s aspirations for the 2023 season.
