Friday, head coach Zac Taylor told reporters the quarterback would be sidelined for “several weeks,” according to ESPN.

As News Center 7 previously reported, Burrow was already wearing a sleeve on his right leg prior to the injury.

He was seen giving someone a thumbs-up as he was being carted off the field.
