Backup Ryan Finley came in at quarterback for Cincinnati.

An apparent knee injury took Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow out of the game midway through Cincinnati's Sunday afternoon match-up with the Washington Football Team.

Burrow has not had a recorded leg injury in his career, per Sports Injury Predictor.

Burrow was unable to put any pressure on his leg, which led to him being helped by a cart. He was 22-for-34 passing for 203 yards and a touchdown Sunday before exiting the game.

Burrow went down after getting hit below the waist by a Washington defensive lineman with just over 11 minutes left in the third quarter.

Later, Burrow would tweet that he was finished for the season. Instead, the future of Burrow's rookie season is now in question after the injury. Nearly immediately, Burrow clutched his left leg as Bengals coach Zac Taylor came out to check on the franchise's star quarterback. He was quickly ruled out for the game.

Young revealed following the game what he told Burrow.

Cincinnati had hoped Burrow was the franchise's next cornerstone quarterback when the Bengals selected the southeast OH product with the top overall pick in April's draft.

The Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback was hit low in the pocket and suffered a gruesome leg injury.
