Joe Burrow completed 25-of-36 passes for 300 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the Bengals' Week 4 win over Jacksonville. The win is the first of Burrow's career after the Bengals tied the Eagles in Week 3. Burrow had only 11 rushing yards but continued to make plays outside the pocket. Burrow's lone mistake was an interception that came in the end-zone on a forced pass to TE Drew Sample. His touchdown was a checkdown to Joe Mixon, who scored all three of the Bengals' TDs. Through four games, Burrow is on pace for 4,484 yards with a 24:8 TD/INT ratio. Burrow will get his first real test in a Week 5 matchup with the Ravens.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Ravens are "taking precaution" with Lamar Jackson (knee) after he missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but that he is "expected to play this weekend." We still don't even known when Jackson got injured. The "precaution" angle makes sense, but a quarterback missing back-to-back practices and then still playing is not the norm. It is far from unheard of, but Jackson is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. For now, fantasy managers can keep him penciled in. Even a "limited" Friday session would quell most worry. Stay tuned.
