Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow appeared to get knocked out cold after his head was bounced off the turf.  He attempted to pickup a first down with his legs when he took a hit that caused his head to slam on the ground.

For a moment it appeared as if Burrow was completely unconscious as he laid completely still after the play.  He then moved and rolled to his back before the medical staff arrived.

This is definitely going to require some concussion protocols to be implemented.  Hopefully he's okay, but it's safe to say his day is over.

UPDATE: Burrow's day was not over he somehow passed the concussion protocols.  Don't ask me how.  Dude looked asleep for heartbeat or two.
