Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is expected to be under center for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions but he may have some trouble calling plays at the line of scrimmage according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.com.

Burrow is on "voice rest" this week, which will not affect his availability for practice but but will obviously change how the team relays play calls during their sessions.  The 2020 No.1-overall pick suffered a throat contusion in the overtime loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 5 and was taken to the hospital after the game when he was having difficulty talking.  He was released after his throat checked out fine but the Bengals will have to be creative this week at practice.  The hope for the Bengals is that the rest during the week will allow Burrow to call plays and audible as usual against the Lions but head coach Zac Taylor may need to have backup plans on hand in the event something needs to change in that process.
