Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow's MRI revealed tears in his ACL and MCL as well as other structural issues in his left knee, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The rookie will undergo reconstructive surgery on his knee and rehab for the 2021 season, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Burrow suffered the season-ending knee injury on Sunday against the Washington Football Team. He appeared to sustain 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 was carted off the field and quickly declared out of the contest with a knee injury.

Ryan Finley took over the game in Burrow's absence.

"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."

Rapoport reported on Sunday that Burrow suffered a torn ACL and would undergo an MRI to confirm the injury.
