  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Won't play in preseason opener

    Burrow (appendix) won't play in Friday's preseason matchup with Arizona, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Burrow never had a shot to play and doesn't seem likely to make more than one brief appearance this preseason, if he plays at all. He threw some short passes during Monday's practice, marking the first time since a July 26 appendectomy that reporters had seen the QB do any type of on-field activity. Burrow returned to meetings shortly after surgery and is expected to be ready for Week 1.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Not using cart

    Burrow (appendix) is getting around practice without a cart, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Burrow returned to team meetings shortly after his late-July appendectomy and seems to be recovering along the normal timeline of 2-to-3 weeks. The Bengals don't figure to rush him, given their continuity at the skill positions and with their offensive coaching staff. They do have two or three new starters on the offensive line, all of whom profile as upgrades. Burrow is in a great situation to continue his efficient passing from last year, with the only real downside being that he hasn't used his legs the way he did at LSU. Still, he's a solid QB1, though perhaps without the fantasy ceiling of a Lamar Jackson or Jalen Hurts.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: First activity since surgery Monday

    Burrow (appendix) was seen throwing some light passes at the end of Monday's practice, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Earlier Monday, Burrow was able to get around the practice field without a cart, like he had been doing of late, and he proceeded to log his first activity as well. Baby relayed that Burrow was taking snaps, went through his reads and tossed the ball back to a member of the Bengals' equipment staff. After he underwent an appendectomy July 26, Burrow was given a recovery timeline of 2-to-3 weeks, so he is approaching the front end of that timetable. Still, the team isn't likely to rush its franchise quarterback back to the field with the aim to have him running on all cylinders by Week 1, when he again will have a wealth of skill-position talent at his disposal.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Deemed day-to-day

    Burrow (appendix) is considered day-to-day and has been present for meetings at training camp, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Burrow presumably was able to continue working on the mental side of the game within a few days of undergoing surgery last Tuesday (July 26). Early reports suggested he could be miss two or three weeks, but it won't be shocking if it's a bit less than that. The relatively minor surgery, an appendectomy, shouldn't end up having too much impact on either his perceived fantasy value or his in-season performance.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Return timetable TBD

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Burrow underwent successful surgery Tuesday to remove his appendix, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. Burrow will be discharged from the hospital Wednesday, but a timeline for his return to the field isn't known.

    Taylor said he isn't too worried about Burrow's current absence because new offense installs will be addressed later in training camp, per Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer. In the meantime, Brandon Allen will likely handle the bulk of first-team reps. While Burrow's availability for preseason action looks iffy, there's no indication that the Bengals have any concerns about his Week 1 availability.
