Washington defenders Jonathan Allen and Montez Sweat sandwiched Burrow after he threw a pass intended for Tyler Boyd. Burrow grabbed at his left leg and appeared to be in enormous pain as trainers attended to him on the field. Players from both teams stayed out of the field as he was taken off.
Through nine starts entering today, Burrow has completed 242 of 370 passes (65.4 percent) for 2,485 yards and 12 touchdowns to five interceptions while adding three rushing scores.
After the Bengals confirmed via Twitter that Burrow wouldn't return to the game Burrow himself tweeted a message to fans.
However, the No. 1 pick had taken a beating even before this game, getting sacked 32 times and hit 72 times coming in.
