One of the most promising NFL seasons by a rookie quarterback came to an end on Sunday, ESPN reports.

According to a post on ESPN's website, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow effectively ruled himself out for the remainder of the 2020 season after he was carted off the field in Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team, Ben Baby reports. Burrow suffered a left-leg injury in the third quarter. Burrow was sandwiched by two Washington defenders who converged on him on a third-and-2 pass attempt, Baby reported.

On Sunday afternoon, Burrow sent out a tweet thanking people for support and suggesting he was done in 2020. "Thanks for all the love," Burrow said. "Can't get rid of me that easy. See ya next year."

Here's the tweet:
