Joe Burrow has been out of the league after he tore a right wrist ligament in mid-November. Currently, during the offseason, he has his eyes set on recovery and hence his focus remains on matters outside of the gridiron. In the wake of these circumstances, he diverted his attention to his other escapades. We’ve seen Burrow shooting hoops on a couple of occasions, but as it turns out, he also has an inclination toward Volleyball, at least concerning business.

His love for the sport led him to become the co-owner of a Pro Volleyball Federation team, the Columbus Fury. There has been a major growth in women-led sports, especially Volleyball and that’s why PVF was born. The Fury is hosting its first home game and Burrow is there to support the girls.

The Cincinnati Bengals QB just updated his Instagram Story, and it seems like he’s there to watch how the Columbus Fury does after a 0-2 start. The Ohio team is welcoming the Omaha Supernovas in their debut home game. The story is just a still image that shows the players about to practice. But he’s not the only Burrow involved in some Volleyball action.

Apparently, the QB’s father Jimmy Burrow serves as Director, Brand Advancement for Pro Volleyball Federation. The first home game at Nationwide Arena has got the whole Burrow family invested from the start. “I have been watching the growth of Pro Volleyball Federation since my parents and I joined the League, and it has been very impressive to see,” mentioned Joe Burrow.

“It seems like every day more great news is announced about the League, whether it’s the great players who continue to sign with the League, the outstanding coaches who are involved, or the new ownership groups and markets that are added. I am very proud to be a part of it, and I am now excited to say that my family is involved in the Columbus Fury ownership group,” the QB added.

Maybe Volleyball might give him a new perspective for when the QB decides to come back from his injury and take on the field, having his hands full with off-field duties at the moment.

The Joe Burrow injury mishap

Joe Burrow’s injury was undoubtedly a bit on the controversial spectrum. There’s a narrative on the internet that Burrow was made to play football by the side when he wasn’t physically fit to do so, hence causing the injury to emerge in the first place. His exertion led to a torn ligament in his right hand in the November loss to the Baltimore Ravens in 2023.

The recovery time for such an injury is about four to six months. Luckily, he has that much time before the regular season begins in 2024. Jake Browning has been doing a fine job of commanding the Bengals in his absence, but they still didn’t get to the playoffs without their starting QB. The Bengals finished their season with a 9-8 record with no chance of going in the off-season.

As of now, there is no concrete report on the rehabilitation progress. Maybe we will get to know about his condition once the rosters get settled for the next season.
