WASHINGTON — Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow appears to be out for the season after injuring his left knee Sunday during the third quarter of the game against the Washington Football Team.
Burrow went down after a play on third down that resulted in an incomplete pass to Tyler Boyd.
Burrow was grabbing his leg and was carted off the field.
The Bengals soon said he was out for the rest of the game.
Backup quarterback Ryan Finley finished the game for the Bengals.
"Thanks for all the love. Can’t get rid of me that easy. See ya next year," Burrow tweeted.
The Cincinnati Enquirer and the NFL Network are reporting that the initial diagnosis of the injury is a torn ACL. The exact nature of Burrow's injury has not been released by the Bengals.
Burrow is from The Plains in Athens County and won the Heisman Trophy and the National Championship with Louisiana State University.
