After a rough start to training camp, Bengals QB Joe Burrow has "been stacking one quality practice on top of another over the past 10 days," Sports Illustrated's James Rapien writes. Burrow went 11 of 15 with 3 TDs in team drills on Monday, per Rapien, and also scrambled for a pair of 1st downs. That last note is especially encouraging for a guy returning from a serious knee injury. Burrow isn't going to play this preseason, so these practice reports are all we'll get before Week 1. He's probably not a guy you'll want to trust in that opener vs. the Vikings -- but Burrow could certainly be an every-week QB1 by October.
Bengals QB Joe Burrow (throat) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s plus matchup vs. the Lions.
Bengals QB Joe Burrow (throat) put in a full practice on Wednesday. It's confirmation that he'll be ready for this weekend's game vs. the Lions. Burrow is a low-end QB1 in that plus matchup.
Bengals QB Joe Burrow was released from the hospital on Sunday night after suffering a throat contusion in the overtime loss to the Packers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Burrow should be absolutely fine," Rapoport adds. We'll keep an eye on him this week, but expect Burrow under center for Sunday's plum matchup vs. the Lions.
Geoff Hobson of the team website reports that Bengals QB Joe Burrow went to the hospital after Sunday's OT loss to the Packers to be examined for a possible throat contusion. Burrow did make it through the whole game. We'll pass along any updates on the QB's condition.
The Bengals offense has struggled early in training camp, according to The Athletic. QB Joe Burrow, in particular, has struggled with turnovers and accuracy. "It’s just not good right now," insiders Jay Morrison and Paul Dehner write. "Throws that felt like layups last year are dropping harmlessly away from receivers or easily broken up by multiple defenders." It's early August. And Burrow, of course, is returning from last year's multi-ligament injury. So we're not hitting the panic button yet. But this has certainly become a situation to monitor over the next month.
