There is still a timeline for the return of Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Borough as he continues to recover from an appendectomy earlier this week.
Bengals coach Zack Taylor didn’t seem too concerned on Saturday about when the Burrows would return to the squad.
“I don’t have any timetable,” Taylor told reporters after training. “We’re trying to give him some privacy and I’m sure he’ll come back to him when he’s ready.”
Burrow, 25, went to training camp on July 23 and took part in two days of fieldwork. But he has dealt with contractures during training, and on Tuesday, reports emerged that the 25-year-old would have an appendectomy.
The Cincinnati characters proceed cautiously with the borough once the third-year professional returns to camp. The season opener is August 12th against the Arizona Cardinals but the real goal is to have the Boroughs fully intact on September 11th when the Bengals opened the 2022 season against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Burrow had a huge season last year leading the Bengals to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Los Angeles Rams. NFL Comeback Player of the Year completed his highest 70.4 percent of assists while creating franchise records for 4,611 yards and 34 touchdown passes. It was intercepted 14 times.
Burrow had his rookie season ended after 10 games with a tear in his ACL and MCL in his left knee.
Backup Brandon Allen receives most of the workload in the middle with Burrow sidelined.
