Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee against the Washington Football Team Sunday and will undergo reconstructive surgery and rehab for the 2021 season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Burrow was carted off the field in the third quarter of the Bengals' 20-9 loss after getting hit high and low by Washington linemen Montez Sweat and Jonathan Allen. The 23-year-old's left knee was seen bending the wrong way and he couldn't put any weight on it as he was helped onto a cart.
He tweeted after the game, "Thanks for all the love. Can't get rid of me that easy. See ya next year."
