Burrow expects to play through dislocated pinkie finger
"It's just something I'm going to have to deal with," Burrow said postgame, according to ESPN's Ben Baby. "I'm not going to miss any games because of it. That's not something that's going to happen."
Burrow explained that he suffered the injury on the team's first drive after taking a sack, per Baby. The quarterback remained in the game as the training staff attempted to tape up his finger and offer him gloves, though Burrow eventually ditched both remedies.
"It's just something I have to play through," Burrow said. "That's what football is. You gotta play through some injuries sometimes."
The 24-year-old finished with 300 yards passing but threw two interceptions and was sacked six times in the loss. He added two total touchdowns, with one coming on the ground.
The loss marked the end of a two-game winning streak for the Bengals and dropped the club to 7-5. Cincinnati is slated to take on the San Francisco 49ers next week.
