Slow motion footage of Joe Burrow’s knee injury is going viral. The video shows Joe Burrow’s knee popping out the socket and popping back in. You can see the top of Joe Burrow’s tibia poking out his uniform while he was being tackled.
At the moment preliminary reports say Joe Burrow has a torn ACL, and will miss the rest of the season. Considering how shocking the slow motion footage of Joe Burrow’s injury is, you could almost say he got lucky that only his ACL was torn if there was no ancillary damage.
Joe Burrow’s knee injury is another blow to the hellacious season the Cincinnati Bengals have had. With a record 2-7 and currently sitting at the bottom of the AFC North, this dampens any chance of having a miracle run to end the season.
Quarterbacks have been dropping left and right from severe leg injuries this season, and all seem to be caused from players tackling their legs.
Let’s hope Joe Burrow can make a full recovery.
