Cincinnati Bengals crook quarterback Joe Burrow injured several ligaments in his left knee on Sunday, sources told ESPN.
The MRI showed Burrow tightened his ACL and MCL and suffered other structural issues in his left knee.
Burrow was taken off the field in the third quarter of a 20–9 loss at Washington. In a tweet Sunday afternoon, Burrow said that “see next year,” suggesting he was done for the season 2020.
According to teammates, Barrow was at the team’s facility on Monday, and appeared in good spirits after the end of the season. Bengals second-year coach Zac Taylor is expected to meet with reporters around 3pm on Monday.
Barrow suffered an injury after being sacked by two Washington defenders who converted on him in a third and 2-pass attempt.
The first overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft was on pace to become a rookie for the first time in league history, with six 300-yard passing games in his first 10 matches. Barrow was 22-34 for 203 yards, losing one touchdown and one before going down in the third quarter.
Cincinnati expected that when the Bengals selected the Southeastern Ohio product with the top overall pick in the April draft, he was the franchise’s next cornerstone quarterback. Almost as soon as Burrow officially arrived in Cincinnati, it was clear that he was going to be the team’s Week 1 starter as a cheater. The Bengals released the team’s second-round veteran Andy Dalton in the 2011 draft, and did not add another veteran quarterback to the 53-man roster.
In his first 10 games, the miscreants showed why he represented so much hope for a franchise that had not won a playoff game since January 1991. Player’s first 10 games (2,688 yards total since Sunday’s game). At half-time of the season, Burrow had the pace to break Andrew Luck’s record for most passing yards as Rocky (4,374).
