Burrow underwent surgery to repair the torn ligament in his right wrist Monday.

The Bengals released the following statement regarding the surgery: “The procedure went as planned and he is expected to make a complete recovery. Joe will return to Cincinnati this week to be with the team and begin the recovery and rehab process.” Burrow is in line to miss the rest of the campaign, capping him to 2,309 yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions in parts of 10 games. There’s an expectation that he’ll be healthy well in advance of the 2024 season.

Burrow’s progression continued last season, as the 2020 No. 1 pick finished fourth among QBs in fantasy points and top-10 weeks (nine) while ranking no lower than fifth in pass attempts, completions, yards and TDs. Burrow’s efficiency stats predictably came back to earth, but he offset it with more volume as both a passer and rusher. After totaling a 40-118-2 rushing line in 2021, Burrow finished no lower than eighth among QBs in carries (75), rush TDs (five) and carries inside the opponent’s 5-yard line (seven) last season. The 26-year-old has emerged as one of the league’s top quarterbacks and he’ll again have the elite Ja’Marr Chase/Tee Higgins duo at his disposal. Burrow is a top-five fantasy QB.
