Bengals Head Coach Zac Taylor would not confirm the report when he spoke to the media Monday.

Taylor did say the team expects Burrow back for the 2021 season.

When asked if Burrow would be ready for the opening week of next season, Taylor responded with “he’ll be ready for the 2021 season.”

Burrow suffered the injury during the third quarter of Sunday’s game with the Bengals leading 9-7. He dropped back to pass when a Washington Football Team (3-7) defensive player fell into his planted leg.

Burrow went to the ground grabbing his knee.
