CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Cincinnati Bengals Head Coach Zac Taylor says Joe Burrow will have surgery on his knee “in the middle of the week.”

Taylor was asked for an update on Burrow during his weekly press conference on Monday.

Defensive End Sam Hubbard says Burrow is traveling to the west coast for the surgery, although he didn’t know the time or date.

The Bengals rookie quarterback suffered a torn ACL and MCL during the Nov. 22 game against the Washington Football Team.

Taylor had said previously that he expects Burrow to “be ready for the 2021 season.”

Burrow suffered the injury during the third quarter of the game when he dropped back to pass and a Washington Football Team defensive player fell into his planted leg.

After the injury, Burrow tweeted, “Can’t get rid of me that easy. See ya next year.”

The Bengals drafted Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft and he had started every game of the season.
