CINCINNATI - Former LSU star Joe Burrow continued to play in the Super Bowl Sunday night after suffering a serious leg injury midway through the game, Bengals Coach Zac Taylor revealed Wednesday.

The team said Burrow's injury, which came late in the NFL's championship game, was later diagnosed as an MCL sprain. During the broadcast Sunday, Burrow appeared to be in significant pain after being tackled by multiple Rams defenders on one play. 

Early reports suggested Burrow would not need surgery.

The Bengals ultimately lost to the Rams, 23-20.
