Joe Burrow went down with an apparent leg injury against the Washington Football Team on Sunday afternoon. The Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback appears to be in considerable pain.
The former LSU Tigers star appeared to suffer an injury in his left leg early in the third quarter of Sunday afternoon's game.
Burrow appeared to be in serious pain. He was down on the field for several minutes, before getting carted off.
It's just a devastating scene.
The NFL world is sick to its collective stomach over this Joe Burrow injury. Burrow was consoled by his Bengals teammates and several Washington Football Team players.
