Joe Burrow got advice from Aaron Rodgers on dealing with an injured calf

Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Joe Burrow spoke last week, with the four-time MVP offering advice to the Bengals quarterback about dealing with a calf injury. Burrow injured his right calf on the second day of training camp and it worsened in Week 2 but he played through it Monday night.

If I get through this week without any setbacks, it will be stronger next week. So, all you can do is rest and take some time. But I will keep playing and training and I will get stronger over the year.”
