Joe Burrow has been spending time at the team facility and joining walk-throughs. He had an operation recently, but it hasn’t slowed him any down. Coach Taylor doesn’t believe he will have a setback

Joe Burrow, the Bengals’ quarterback, has been at the team facilities and has taken part in some aspects of walk-throughs. However, since having an appendectomy at the end of last month, he has been out of commission.

While the 2020 No. 1 overall pick may be mentally rusty when he finally returns to the field after missing training camp, head coach Zac Taylor doesn’t think that will be the case.

With two or three weeks having passed since his last game, “he’s absolutely, we’re going to attempt to get those reps for him,” Taylor said on Wednesday, as reported by Geoff Hobson of the team’s website. There will be a share. The situational hurdles we aimed to overcome are finally behind us. Once he is healthy enough to rejoin the fray, the team’s practices will center on preparing its quarterback for action. You can give him a lot of credit for making sure, since he is a very bright individual. We need to double-check that we haven’t overlooked any crucial stages in identifying problem spots on the playing field. When he returns to the lineup, we’ll give careful thought to how best to structure practice to maximize his time on the field.

Taylor has not provided an update on Burrow’s potential return to the field. However, Burrow’s absence from regular-season action has not yet been confirmed.
