Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow’s rookie season is probably over after he was sent off with a gruesome left knee injury in Sunday’s game in Washington.
The NFL’s overall No. 1 pick in 2020 was hurt when he took a crushing hit in the leg while planting to throw in the third quarter. He was immediately ruled out of the game.

It did not take long for NFL players – and stars around the sports world – to show their support on social media for the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner and former LSU star.
Here are some of the reactions to his devastating injury.
Hate to see Joe Burrow fired with a knee injury. Hope it is not as bad as it looks. But the child is playing with such a gut under fire, yet has taken so much punishment for a bad team.
