Bengals put RB Mixon on IR ahead of matchup with Washington

Bengals put RB Mixon on IR ahead of matchup with Washington

Burrow suffered a left-leg injury in the third quarter.

The Bengals ruled him out shortly after. "Burrow signaled it with his tweet, but the MRI confirming the injury would end his stellar rookie season". He was helped to a medical cart before being taken away from the field, while most of the Bengals came onto the field to show their support for Burrow.

The announcement on Saturday means backup Giovani Bernard will start for the fourth straight game when Cincinnati faces Washington on Sunday.

Burrow completed 22 of 34 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown before he went down with the injury. The Bengals quickly announced that he's out for the rest of the game with a left knee injury.

Young revealed following the game what he told Burrow.

Burrow was the No. 1 pick in April's National Football League draft after a record-setting, Heisman Trophy-winning senior campaign at LSU. Entering Sunday, Cincinnati ranked 28th in the NFL in pass-block win rate, an ESPN metric powered by NFL Next Gen. He could also become the first top-overall-pick rookie to suffer a serious injury since Jadeveon Clowney, who played four games in 2014 before he had microfracture surgery to fix his right knee.
