The NFL world hopes this isn’t serious for Joe Burrow.
The Cincinnati Bengals quarterback was carted off Sunday with a left knee injury in the third quarter against Washington. Burrow was injured while being hit right after making a throw downfield. He was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game. Ryan Finley replaced Burrow at quarterback.
Burrow, whom the Bengals took No. 1 overall out of LSU in the 2020 NFL Draft, has been having an excellent rookie campaign. The 23-year-old entered the game with 2,485 yards, 12 touchdowns and five interceptions in nine starts. He was 22-for-34 with 203 yards and a touchdown against Washington before departing.
Fellow NFL quarterbacks took to Twitter to wish Burrow well.
