Joe Burrow was carted off the field during the Bengals’ loss to the Washington Football Team. He was hit awkwardly in his knee in the third quarter and was later diagnosed with a torn ACL. Burrow took to his Twitter after reports confirmed his season-ending injury.
“Thanks for all the love. Can’t get rid of me that easy. See ya next year.”
Burrow faced Washington’s 2020 No. 2 pick Chase Young. Young had some encouraging words for Burrow following his injury.
“I was hurt cause I know how bad he wants it,” said Young. “He’s a dude, I know Joe want it. I said ‘I love you and get well.’ I pat him on the head and say a little prayer to God.”
Throughout the season, Burrow has lived up to the expectations of a top overall pick. Before his injury, he threw for 2,485 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. He looks to pick up right where he left off after making a full recovery from an ACL tear. His sophomore season will be on to look forward to.
