The Chargers led 24-13 at halftime.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow pushing through pinky injury

Joe Burrow has plans, provided the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback gets his dislocated right pinky to cooperate.

Burrow intends to take the practice field Wednesday and throw for the first time since he was hurt in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

“We’ll have to see. I’m going to try some things in practice this week to see what works best,” Burrow said of figuring out an effective pain management plan.

Wearing a glove was one option, but Burrow decided it was “too hard to get them on, too painful to get them on.”

On Sunday, the Bengals (7-5) host the San Francisco 49ers (6-6) and Burrow’s college pal, former Ohio State pass rusher Nick Bosa. Bosa vowed to sack Burrow since he transferred out of Ohio State to LSU.

With five games left in the regular season — all against teams with at least a .500 record — the Bengals are a game behind the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens. Cincinnati has games remaining with Baltimore, Denver, Kansas City and Cleveland after hosting the 49ers.

Burrow, who turns 25 on Friday, said “at least a little bit” of practice Wednesday is the goal, with the idea of graduating from there.

He said he “doesn’t foresee” a scenario in which he misses Sunday’s game.
