'See ya next year': No1 pick Joe Burrow carted off in Bengals loss squib
Cincinnati quarterback hit as he throws pass in third quarter
Rookie later tweets that he will not return in 2020
Top pick Joe Burrow was carted off with a left knee injury before Alex Smith rallied Washington past the Cincinnati Bengals 20-9 on Sunday to keep his team in the thick of the NFC East race.
Burrow, Cincinnati’s franchise quarterback, was injured early in the third quarter when he was hit high and low by two Washington linemen after throwing a pass. His left leg bent awkwardly, and he couldn’t put any weight on it, ending his day at 22-of-34 passing for 203 yards and a touchdown.
