It has not been a good day for stars in the NFL when it comes to being on the practice field.
The first shocking news was when Miami Dolphins star cornerback Jalen Ramsey had to be carted off the field following Thursday’s training camp practice. Ramsey did suffer a knee injury and later added that a Thursday MRI showed he didn’t tear the ACL but needed surgery.
That was bad enough, but then a prominent quarterback went down as well.
Cincinnati Bengals star quarterback Joe Burrow made the entire league come to a halt when he went down during a training camp practice and appeared to be grabbing his calf while he was sitting on the field. He then needed a cart to be taken off the field. Bengals head coach Zac Taylor would later confirm that Burrow did suffer a calf injury.
ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter would later reveal that a text message sent to him from a coach called for a “restructure” of the current offseason.
“I hate the first two weeks of training camp. They need to restructure the off-season,” the coach told Schefter in a text.
At this point, all players and fan bases would agree especially if changes would cut down on injuries.
The 28-year-old Ramsey has been one of the NFL’s top cornerbacks since being the No. 5 overall pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2016 draft. Since joining the league he’s been a six-time Pro Bowler, three-time first-team All-Pro selection, and won a Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams in 2021.
Joe Burrow threw for 4,475 yards with 35 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions in 2022. His partnership with No. 1 wideout Ja’Marr Chase ensures the Bengals have one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL. Burrow has changed the outlook of the entire franchise as they have been to back-to-back AFC Championship games and one Super Bowl appearance.
