Joe Burrow done for season with knee injury
Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow was carted off the field with a left leg injury in the Cincinnati Bengals’ game against the Washington Football Team on Sunday afternoon.
Early in the third quarter, Burrow was drilled high by Washington defensive end Montez Sweat and hit low by defensive lineman Jonathan Allen while throwing a pass, and his leg bent awkwardly.
Looks like Burrow got caught between two rushers. Allen came in from his left and hit his legs while Sweat came off the right and hit higher. Burrow's left knee took the force of the hit. pic.twitter.com/Sl3X3uAQah

Burrow was unable to put any pressure on his leg, which led to him being helped by a cart.
The Bengals held a 9-7 lead over Washington when Burrow was injured. Backup Ryan Finley came in at quarterback for Cincinnati.
Joe Burrow ended his day completing 22 of 34 passes for 203 yards and one touchdown.
Later, Burrow would tweet that he was finished for the season.
Thanks for all the love. Can’t get rid of me that easy. See ya next year✊
