Cincinnati Bengals star rookie Joe Burrow left Sunday's Week 11 game against Washington Football Team with what ESPN's Adam Schefter reported as an injured left knee.

Chase Young, a rookie defender for Washington whose big hit on Burrow forced a fumble earlier in the game, was among the players offering encouragement to Burrow as he departed the field. The team is calling it a left knee injury.

He was carted off the field as players from both teams wished him well.

"Thanks for all the love".

The president said he had been meeting with various groups to present changes to the controversial budget. The spending plan was negotiated in secret and approved by the congress before dawn Wednesday.

Washington quarterback Alex Smith, just two years removed from a gruesome leg injury of his own, also came out to check on Burrow. The Bengals quickly ruled Burrow out for the game, and he took to Twitter about an hour after the injury to let fans know his status.

Burrow completed 22 of 34 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown before he went down with the injury. Can't get rid of me that easy. The Bengals had a tough time protecting Burrow, though, allowing him to be sacked an average of more than three times per game.
