Report: Bengals QB Joe Burrow suffers torn ACL vs. Washington Football Team

Joe Burrow Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals were dealt a crushing blow on Sunday after star rookie quarterback Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending ACL injury.

After being hit by two Washington players in the third quarter of the Bengals’ 20-9 loss, Burrow was ominously carted off the field.

Burrow was the top overall pick in last April’s NFL draft and had given every sign that he was worthy of that selection with a stellar rookie campaign.

Entering Sunday’s game against Washington, Burrow had completed 242 of 370 passes for 2,485 yards, throwing 12 touchdown passes and just five interceptions.

Longtime Bengals fans are hoping that this injury to Burrow doesn’t turn out the same way as Greg Cook in 1969. In that instance, Cook injured his arm during his outstanding rookie season and was never able to return as a regular quarterback for the team.
