Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow was carted off the field in the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. Washington. 

The team quickly declared him out of the contest with a left knee injury. 

Burrow reportedly suffered a torn ACL on Sunday, per the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cincinnati's quarterback is likely to undergo an MRI to confirm the injury on Sunday or Monday. 

"Thanks for all the love," Burrow tweeted towards the end of the fourth quarter of Sunday's game. "Can’t get rid of me that easy. See ya next year."

Burrow appeared to suffer the injury on a deep pass attempt with 11:41 to go in the third quarter when he was tackled hard in the pocket. 

Burrow, the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL draft, was 22-of-34 for 203 yards and one score on Sunday before leaving the game.

Entering Sunday, Burrow had thrown for 2,485 yards, 12 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also has 131 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. 

The Bengals entered Sunday's game 2-6-1, and in fourth place in the AFC North. 

Cincinnati led 9–7 at the time of Burrow's injury. Ryan Finley entered the game in Burrow's absence.

Washington came back to win, 20-9.
