Why does NFL player not have a nameplate?

The photo shows #9 for the Cincinnati Bengals (Joe Burrow) playing without a nameplate on his jersey during the Bengals game against the Chiefs on 2nd January 2022. Why is this?

Per Uni-watch and a Twitter video, the nameplate (which was probably not sewn on) was coming loose during the game. During a play, a Kansas City player (Chris Jones) grabbed it during an attempted tackle and it was removed from the jersey.
