Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is walking again.
The Bengals quarterback suffered a horrifying injury in November, and he tore his ACL, MCL and received structural damage to his knee. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Joe Burrow suffers a GRUESOME injury. Looks like he snapped his leg in half. Let’s hope it’s not as bad as it appears. pic.twitter.com/iGcme7oFLT

MRI revealed more damage than anticipated: Bengals’ QB Joe Burrow tore his ACL, MCL, and suffered other structural issues in his knee as well, per @Ben_Baby and me.

Now, about a month later, Burrow is already walking again. The LSU Heisman winner posted a Twitter video Christmas Day of him slowly walking around.
While it’s clear he’s not anywhere near being able to walk normally, he’s off to a great start in the rehab process.

This is what we love to see, and I’m happy that Burrow seems to be doing well. He was having an awesome year prior to being injured.
He was balling out, and was having an incredible rookie campaign. Then, it all fell apart after one hit.
Based on today’s tests, the #Bengals are anticipating Joe Burrow should be ready right around the start of the 2021 season, per source. That’d peg his recovery at 8-9 months. Surgery still to come, but there is optimism. https://t.co/oRlzA8xOVt

Let’s hope he’s able to bounce back and be ready for week one of next season. I think I speak for NFL fans everywhere when I say we’re pulling for him. He’s a hell of a player, and nobody wants to see him hurt.
