About an hour after he was carted off the field, Burrow confirmed in a tweet that he is out for the season, but he's already looking forward to 2021.
Thanks for all the love. Cant get rid of me that easy. See ya next year— Joey Burrow (@JoeyB) November 22, 2020
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the injury is believed to be a torn ACL.
