Joe Burrow’s impressive rookie season has come to an end.

On Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback went down with a torn ACL that has brought his 2020 campaign end to an end.

Burrow confirmed he was out for the year with a message on social media.

“Thanks for all the love. Can’t get rid of me that easy. See ya next year,” he wrote.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network said that the initial diagnosis for Burrow was a torn ACL, but there is also the possibility that he may have suffered additional damage.

An MRI will determine the full extent of the injury.

Even if there is additional damage, it is believed that Burrow will be able to return to action by November 2021. Of course, Burrow could return sooner.

From the Cincinnati Enquirer:

Cincinnati Reds medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek told The Enquirer there’s a realistic expectation that Burrow should come back in nine to 12 months, which ranges from late August to late November, 2021.

“At the quarterback position, they recover extremely well in a very predictable way,” said Kremchek, who has also consulted for NFL, college football and high school players at Beacon Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. “There’s a lot of optimism that he could come back 100% as long as he’s got the right treatment at the right time and we don’t rush him.”

We wish Burrow a full and speedy recovery.
