Burrow underwent knee surgery on Wednesday, the team announced. The procedure took place 10 days after Burrow suffered what sources previously told ESPN was a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee and other structural damage.
“The procedure went as planned and he is expected to make a complete recovery,” the team said in a statement. “Joe will begin the recovery process and we look forward to his return.”
Burrow was the top overall pick in the 2020 draft and was in the midst of a strong rookie season before he suffered the injury at Washington on Nov. 22.
The former LSU standout completed 65.3% of his passes for 2,688 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions.
