The NFL’s Billion Dollars’ Worth of Injured Quarterbacks

From a Wall Street Journal story by Andrew Beaton headlined “The NFL’s Billion Dollars’ Worth of Injured Quarterbacks”:

After quarterback Joe Burrow suffered a wrist injury last Thursday that will likely end his season, Cincinnati Bengals coach Zac Taylor tried to sound optimistic.

“I’m excited to see this team respond,” he said. “This season is far from over.”

Taylor was just the latest coach forced to reckon with losing his most important player. A year that began with Aaron Rodgers tearing his Achilles just moments into his debut as a New York Jet has turned into a war of attrition among quarterbacks.
