Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow After an appendectomy at the start of training camp, it remains indefinitely.
Bengals coach Zach Taylor said he doesn’t have a timetable for Burrow’s return to the field.
“I hate to put a timeline on it,” Taylor said Friday. But he’s getting a lot of good mental work these days.
The third-year quarterback and top overall pick in the 2020 draft has not participated in any practices since the Bengals began training camp last week. But Burrow remains visible and active during the preparations for the upcoming season.
Taylor Burrow said he’s participating in team meetings, even leading some of them like he did before Friday’s practice. When asked if Burrow could be used to point calls like the Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray They’re working on their own camp, Taylor says that’s not important.
“He’s engaged a lot,” Taylor said. “I don’t think we need to motivate him, he does a great job.”
Barrow watched practice with the team on a medical cart during two practices this week. At the end of Thursday’s practice, the team lost a team drill on defense, replaced by a penalty, and carried the medical cart onto the field with the rest of the offense.
Taylor Burroughs said he was very visible to his teammates even though he was unable to fully participate in training camp.
“We’re happy to see him around,” Taylor said. “It’s our neighborhood.”
