The Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Bur Burrow reported a significant, yet relatively minor injury to the Washington Football team on Sunday.
Early in the third quarter, Burroughs went down to pass back and hit a blow to his knee after he threw the ball. Burroughs ripped his ACL, According to Ian Repoport Of the NFL network. The Bengals will not confirm the NFL Network report on the torn ACL and Bengal’s head coach Zack Taylor is expected to give an update on the status of the borough on Monday.
Mercy Health, whose d. Mark T. Galloway is the team’s physician, a spokeswoman for Bone Seekers Mercy Health, issued the following statement by Nanette Bentley: “Because of the Health Privacy Act, we are unable to comment.”
If Burroughs ripped his ACL, the medical director of the Cincinnati Reds Dr. Timothy Kramek Inquirer said there is a real expectation that Burroughs should return in nine to 12 months, from the end of August to November 2021.
“At the quarterback position, they’re projected to recover very well,” said Kramek, who also consulted Beacon Orthopedics and Sports Medicine’s NFL, college football and high school players. “There’s a lot of optimism that he can come back 100% until he gets the right treatment at the right time and we won’t rush it.”

When Kramchek saw the play, he said he knew Burroughs had suffered a “devastating” injury. Kramchek saw Burroughs ‘left-footed plant before he was hit and then he saw Burroughs’ knees being “severely pushed inwards.”
He said many other quarterbacks, including Tom Brady, have suffered similar injuries and have returned to play at a higher level.
“It’s the kind of injury where all the tension in the knee takes over,” Kremchek said. “It’s a horrible way to hit, so there’s no question he had any significant ligament damage.”
Krumchek said Burrow’s knee began to swell within 20 minutes after the shock was over. After going into the locker room, it is common for the player to take an MRI to make sure there is no other structural damage to the foot.
For Burroughs, Kramchek said potential areas of concern include his ACL and MCL, as well as his meniscus and his knees.
“If the ACL is torn, the MCL was definitely torn with it,” Kremchek said. “It’s not just going to be a separate ACL. There are other injuries inside the knee. Simply saying that it is an ACL injury is probably an understatement. “
Kremchek said Brorow will have surgery once his knee swelling has stabilized below. Burroughs’ next four steps will be “speed, work, power, and big work.”
Kramchek said Burroughs would take six weeks to regain momentum in his knees. After that, the borough would undergo about four months of strength training, followed by four months of functional training the borough was built to return to the field of football.
The final step is game-specific and position-specific training.
“Hopefully you can see how he runs the training camp and hopefully he can make progress through the training camp.” “Then you hope Burroughs can be close to playing early next year.”
