2020 will have a clear contrast for Joe Burrow, the Bengals quarterback, who in April saw the dream of playing in the NFL crystallized after being the first virtual draft pick, in September he made his official debut and He will close the year away from the grills after suffering a severe knee injury.
Burrow will miss the remainder of the season in what appears to be a cruciate ligament injury, in the absence of a medical report, after a fortuitous play, in the match against Washington, a team that has also suffered with injuries, since at the beginning of the month they lost Kyle Allen due to a fracture.
Burrow’s injury play
The action happened after the break, in the third period and with more than 11 minutes on the clock, when Burrow commanded a play near the end zone for Washington, very close to the 10-yard line., and therefore the worst that could happen to the Bengals is that Burrow was captured.
The QB received the ball and was able to shoot, but as soon as the ball was detached he received a strong impact that caused the left knee to project backwards, so he left the game on a stretcher and could not return.
Which causes such good players to reach such bad teams.
The Bengals line is a joke, they never protected their Quarteback, poor Joe Burrow, hopefully he recovers soon and runs away, because he has enormous potential. pic.twitter.com/0gSS1s5Bcd

The Bengals player will undergo an MRI to determine the exact extent of the injury and if the cruciate ligament tear is confirmed, surgery will be necessary.
