LSU redshirt senior QB Joe Burrow was spotted in a sling.
Burrow (6'4/216) played well in LSU's bowl win on New Year's Day, so this is likely a minor injury that won't affect his 2019 offseason at all. At least that's what The Advocate's Brooks Kubena is hearing from LSU staff. As a redshirt junior in 2018, Burrow passed for 2,894 yards and 16 touchdowns, but he began to show more upside later in the season. Burrow should surpass these stats in 2019, assuming he's healthy.

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 21-of-34 passes for 394 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in Tuesday's 40-32 bowl win over UCF.

Burrow (6'4/216) lit up the undefeated Knights on his way to setting career highs in both yards and touchdowns. After beginning the year as a game manager, Burrow began to break out of his shell for three straight games with at least 270 yards. The former Ohio State quarterback ends his first complete season with 16 passing touchdowns and just four interceptions. Assuming he comes back for his redshirt senior season, Burrow will be a candidate to set new season-long career highs in yards (2,894) and touchdowns (16) in 2018.
Jan 1 - 5:20 PM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 25-of-38 passes for 270 yards with three touchdowns and an interception, and ran for 100 yards and three scores in a 74-72 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday in seven overtimes.

What a game. Burrow's effort comes in a loss, and while it comes against a defense that leaves a lot to be desired, it should give hope to LSU fans for 2019. Not only was Burrow solid throwing the ball, he was impressive on keepers, and he consistently was able to run out of pressure and gashed the Aggies up the middle. Unfortunately, the loss might cost the Tigers a trip to a New Year's Six bowl, but we should have a better idea of that on Tuesday. Nevertheless, a terrific game from the former Ohio State signal-caller.

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 20-of-28 passes for 307 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-10 win over Rice.

Burrow (6'4/216) set a career high for passing yards by averaging 11.0 yards per pass attempt against a porous Rice defense. The redshirt junior found Stephen Sullivan for a 38-yard touchdown in the first quarter before hitting TE Foster Moreau for a 13-yard score. Burrow needed today's big game to build some confidence after getting crushed by Alabama two weeks ago, and the Tigers will look to carry the momentum into next week's game against Texas A&M.

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 18-of-35 passes for 184 yards and an interception in Saturday's 29-0 loss to Alabama.

The LSU defense was up to the task against Bama, so much as anybody can be up to the task when it comes to slowing down that machine, but Burrow and the offense proved rather punch-less against Nick Saban's crew. For all of the talk of Alabama's offensive firepower, they remain one of the best defensive teams in the country, something that was on full display against LSU. Burrow and the rest of his Tigers brethren will try to shake this one off when they take on Arkansas next weekend.

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 16-of-28 passes for 129 yards and an interception in Saturday's 19-3 win over Mississippi State.

On brand enough from Burrow. This was the fifth game in eight contests in which the Ohio State transfer has failed to throw for even 200 yards. Five of his six touchdown passes this season have come in two games, against Southeastern Louisiana and Ole Miss. He'll have a bye week upcoming, then Alabama.

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 15-of-30 passes for 200 yards in a 36-16 upset win over Georgia on Saturday.

And he even had three big plays on the ground, completing one-yard touchdown pushes in the second and fourth quarters and icing the game with a 59-yard gallop late in the fourth quarter. The Ohio State transfer was lights out in the first half as LSU jumped out to a 16-0 lead. Georgia got within 10, in the late third/early fourth quarter, but no closer. Off this dominant performance, LSU welcomes Mississippi State to town next week.

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 19-of-34 passes for 191 yards with two interceptions in a 27-19 loss to Florida on Saturday.

Burrow had his best game at LSU last week in the blowout win over Ole Miss. Unfortunately for him, the Ohio State transfer had his worst game in the loss to the Gators on Saturday. He was hurt by drops, but he also was hurt by his own poor decisions, including picks on his final two drives; one of which was returned for a score. Burrow has to be more accurate and on time with the football if LSU is going to be a playoff contender. An even tougher test comes next Saturday against Georgia.
Sat, Oct 6, 2018 07:29:00 PM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 18-of-25 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 45-16 win over Ole Miss.

The Tigers put up over 500 total yards for the first time this season, and this was Burrow's best game at LSU. Burrow set new single-game career-highs in passing yards and touchdowns against Ole Miss. In addition to his great passing game, Burrow was able to contribute an additional 96 yards and a score on his nine carries. The Tigers move to 5-0 and are a better team than preseason rankings suggested with Burrow playing well at QB. LSU will play an important road game against the Florida Gators next week.

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 15-of-34 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown in a 22-21 victory over Auburn on Saturday.

Burrow was awful in the first half, and while he wasn't leaps and bounds better in the final 30 minutes, he made enough clutch plays for the Tigers to pull off the moderate upset. His touchdown pass could have been intercepted, but it went just over the hands of an Auburn defender to Derrick Dillon for 71 yards to make it 21-19. LSU's defense is going to keep the Tigers in every game, so as long as Burrow doesn't turn the ball over, they have a chance to beat everyone. He has a much easier contest coming up next Saturday against Louisiana Tech.
Sat, Sep 15, 2018 07:18:00 PM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 10-of-20 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score in a 31-0 win over Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday.

Burrow struggled to connect on passes in the win over Miami in their opener. Things didn't really change against Southeastern Louisiana, which is a concern. He didn't turn the ball over, but his accuracy on throws to all parts of the field has been below-average. He's going to have to be considerably better against Auburn next Saturday if LSU is going to beat the Tigers.
Sat, Sep 8, 2018 10:17:00 PM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 11-of-24 passes for 140 yards in a 33-17 win over Miami on Sunday.

The Tigers put up 33 points against a defense that on paper ranks as one of the best in the country, but honestly, very little of it had to do with the passing game. Burrow made a couple of nice throws and showed decent arm strength, but he was inaccurate and often late on throws for the most part. This was a tough first test, but the Tigers will need Burrow to be better once conference play begins. A much easier test comes next, however, in a game against Southeastern Louisiana next Saturday.

Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated reports that LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will be named the starting quarterback for Sunday's game against Miami.

Burrow transferred to LSU from Ohio State with an eye on taking the starting job, and he's beaten out Myles Brennan to begin the year as the starting signal-caller. LSU head coach Ed Orgeron has repeatedly said he doesn't want to rotate quarterbacks during games, so as long as Burrow plays well, he's going to be the guy. A former four-star recruit, Brennan will be right on Burrow's shoulder -- assuming he doesn't join several other LSU quarterbacks who transferred out -- so Burrow will have to play well early to keep the job. Obvious point is obvious, but considering how much turmoil there's been at the position over the past few seasons, it's worth pointing out.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that he does not want to rotate quarterbacks during games.

Orgeron is hopeful that he'll be able to name a definitive starter from Joe Burrow, Lowell Narcisse, Myles Brennan and Justin McMillan by the start of the season. Should none emerge from this hatch, though, Coach O has no intention of muddling his offense with multiple in-game signal-callers. If we're to handicap this race, we give Burrow the inside track. That would seem to be the general consensus, as well. A wrinkle on the "just one quarterback" comments -- Narcisse could potentially see time out of the Wild Cat even if he does not start.
Sat, Aug 4, 2018 02:29:00 PM

ESPN's Alex Scarborough believes LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow has the edge on the starting quarterback position.

Scarborough explained quarterbacks Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse, and Justin McMillan "had their shot to move up the leaderboard this spring and failed to do so. Then Ohio State's Burrow hit the market as a grad transfer and the Tigers scooped him up, making him the instant favorite to win the competition." LSU HC Ed Orgeron denies that Burrows was guaranteed the job when he signed, but that is likely a tactic to keep the quarterback room competitive.
