Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) is shaping up as a game-time decision for Monday night's game vs. the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He's been feeling progressively better as we've gone throughout the week," Rapoport says. "Took just a few snaps on Friday, a little bit more on Saturday ... If he plays, he's likely going to play in pain." Between the late kickoff and Burrow's struggles so far, he should be on fantasy benches this week. WRs Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins are worth keeping in starting lineups in most cases, although they'll move down the WR Rankings if QB Jake Browning ends up starting.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Rams. He was limited in practice on Friday and Saturday. WR Ja'Marr Chase said that Burrow didn't throw much on Friday, but he took all the red-zone snaps in the portion of Saturday's practice open to the media, according to insider Mike Petraglia. "We'll see." Zac Taylor said on Burrow's status for Monday night. "Thought he looked good today." We'll look for further updates on the situation. But between the late kickoff and how poorly Burrow has played so far this season, he's better off on fantasy benches for Week 3. If Burrow can't go, QB Jake Browning would start and downgrade Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins to WR2/3 territory.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) returned to a limited practice on Friday. WR Ja'Marr Chase told reporters afterward that Burrow didn't throw much. We'll see what Burrow does on Saturday and how he's listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Rams, but there seems to be a good chance that he doesn't play. Burrow's absence would leave QB Jake Browning under center -- and make all of Cincinnati's weapons shakier fantasy plays.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) did not practice on Thursday. Both HC Zac Taylor and Burrow were non-committal on his availability for Monday night's game vs. the Rams. "Just feeling better," Burrow said. "Not as sore. Time heals. So we'll see." We'll update Burrow's status again on Friday.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor was non-committal on QB Joe Burrow's status for next Monday night's game vs. the Rams, saying it's "hard to say" at this point if Burrow will be available. The Cincinnati Enquirer's Kelsey Conway noted that Burrow was walking around the locker room "without a noticeable limp" and with no boot on his leg on Monday. We'll keep a close eye on his status throughout this week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said it's "fair to wonder" if Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) will play vs. the Rams next Monday night. It wasn't an official report, but we doubt Schefter just pulled this out of thin air. We'll look for further updates on Burrow's status and track his practice participation throughout the week, but his fantasy owners should be lining up a backup plan for Week 3 (and maybe beyond). QB Jake Browning is Cincinnati's backup -- and would obviously be a huge downgrade for all Bengals skill-position players.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow said after Sunday's loss to the Ravens that he aggravated his calf injury late, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. Burrow said he would have re-entered the game had Cincinnati gotten another possession. But he also called it "pretty sore" and said they'd see how he feels over the next few days. Burrow went a solid 27 of 41 passing (65.9%) but tallied just 222 yards (5.4 per attempt). Cincinnati appeared to limit the passing game to shorter throws more than usual. We'll see about Burrow's status heading into Week 3.

In a surprising turn of events, Bengals QB Joe Burrow was pulled from Week 1’s contest vs. the Browns in the fourth quarter. He completed 14 passes on 31 attempts for a career-low 82 passing yards with no TDs or INTs in the blowout 24-3 loss. While the rainy weather in Cleveland played a factor in this contest, it’s still a letdown to see the newly minted richest QB in the NFL post such poor numbers. It’s worthy of mention that Burrow struggled to grip the football and had to put on a glove midway through the game. Fantasy managers looking ahead should see far greater results from Burrow and the Bengals as they host the Ravens in Week 2.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. We’re not expecting the calf to be a factor in Sunday’s opener vs. the Browns.

The Bengals and QB Joe Burrow have agreed to a 5-year, $275 million extension with $219 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It makes Burrow the highest-paid player in NFL history. The Bengals will now turn their attention to locking up Burrow's top two WRs. Tee Higgins is entering the final year of his deal, while Ja'Marr Chase becomes eligible for an extension next offseason.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's just more confirmation that he'll be ready to go for this weekend's opener vs. the Browns.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) is "trending toward playing" vs. the Browns this weekend. That's been the consensus reporting on the situation lately. More importantly, Rapoport adds that the Bengals "wanted to get to a point where there will be no issues going forward, and it seems that's where the Bengals are." So it sounds like the calf should not be a problem for Burrow going forward.

"All signs point to" Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) playing vs. the Browns this weekend, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says. "This has been heading in the right direction for a while," Rapoport adds. We'll get Cincinnati's first official practice report of the season on Wednesday, and we'll keep you updated on Burrow's status. But he can be penciled into Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) had a "really good day" on Monday, HC Zac Taylor said. "It was encouraging to see." Taylor would not yet say that Burrow will be ready for this weekend's opener against the Browns, but it's clearly trending in that direction. "Continuing to take it day to day right now," Taylor added. We'll get Cincinnati's first official injury report of the season on Wednesday.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (calf) has been limited to 7-on-7 work since returning to practice on Wednesday. “He’s not doing a ton,” OC Brian Callahan admitted “We’re still being real cautious about having people around him and having him have to react with the burst and the suddenness that could come up in a team period. I think he wants (to do) as much as possible. We’re just trying to be smart about when and where those things occur until he’s fully good to go.” Callahan added, though, that Burrow remains on track to play in the season opener. “You can tell he’s in shape, and his arm’s in shape, and his timing is good ... I think he’s in a good place, and we’ve got a good plan in place for him to get ready for Week 1."
