Watch: Bengals’ Zac Taylor slams media narrative about LB Logan Wilson

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor nearly left the podium after announcing the season-ending injury suffered by Joe Burrow.


Taylor actually paused mid-departure and announced he had something else he wanted to say, then went off on a tangent about the public perception of linebacker Logan Wilson coming out of Thursday night’s loss.

Wilson was involved in multiple plays where Ravens were injured during the game, with one of them the now-infamous hip-drop tackle on Baltimore tight end Mark Andrews.

While they didn’t outright call Wilson a dirty player per se, some major media pointed out his presence around injuries during the game and Ravens coach John Harbaugh mused after the game if the tackle on Andrews had been necessary.

Here’s the full clip, courtesy of WCPO’s Caleb Noe:

Wilson has never been called for a personal foul and has been an upstanding member of the organization for years, so Taylor attacking this “reckless” narrative early in its lifecycle would seem to be warranted.
