Joe Burrow exited the game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Washington Football Team just after halftime on Sunday, after an awkward hit sent Burrow to the ground and grabbing his knee.
The Bengals quarterback was back in the pocket to throw near his own end zone when one of his own lineman, and a Washington defensive end, got tangled up and fell hard into what appeared to be the quarterback’s left knee.
I won’t show the play here, but if you want to see it, it’s here on Twitter.
Burrow crumpled to the ground, then had to exit the game via an injury cart.
Bengals and Washington players alike huddled around Burrow as he was forced to leave the game due to the injury.
