The injury to Burrow looked very ugly in real time. The pain of the injury and the pain of the moment for the Bengals are accompanied by the fact that the opposing quarterback for Burrow on Sunday is Alex Smith of Washington, who went through a nasty injury ordeal of his own.
Joe Burrow has been a bright spot for the Cincinnati Bengals as a rookie, but fans of the team are holding their breath on Sunday.
Joe Burrow dropped back in the pocket and delivered an incomplete pass to Tyler Boyd on third down. Burrow took a hit and was immediately grabbing for his left leg on the ground.
The medical staff immediately came onto the field as both teams had players surround the rookie quarterback in support. Joe Burrow has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday’s game versus the Washington Football Team.
We all wish the best for Joe Burrow and hope the young signal-caller is able to avoid a serious injury. However, the Bengals could be expecting the worst given the pain Burrow felt after falling to the ground.
Before sustaining his knee injury, Joe Burrow was on track to have one of the best rookie seasons for a quarterback. The LSU product had 2,688 yards, 13 touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Bengals.
Joe Burrow was showing promise as the team’s long-term answer at quarterback. We will likely get more information on the extent of his injury after he undergoes more tests.
