The Cincinnati Bengals face the impossible task of what to do with star quarterback Joe Burrow coming out of a loss that sent the team to 0-2 as he suffered a “tweak” of his injured calf.

Given the fickle nature of the injury to that part of the body, the risk of a worse injury and the underrated part mobility plays in Burrow’s game, the Bengals could very well decide to sit him for a week or two — if not put him on injured reserve designed as a return after the bye week.

But…the Bengals are already 0-2, too. If they sit him and he doesn’t come back 100 percent anyway…one can see the dilemma.

Here’s a quick outliner on the pros and cons of the Bengals deciding to shut down Burrow.
