With the Cincinnati Bengals set to gather this week for the start of offseason activities that host all players under contract, all eyes will be on superstar second-year quarterback Joe Burrow.
Coming off a torn ACL among other knee damage dealt to him against the Washington Football Team in Week 11, Burrow is looking likely to start Week 1.
After a workout video dropped of Burrow by Black Sheep Performance, the “comeback szn” will undoubtedly start to gain some steam. The clip may be just 30 seconds, but it’s enough for Bengals fans to see Burrow in the gym putting in the work.
Now, we didn’t get to see Burrow do much work with his knee or lateral movements, so that should be the next step in seeing the recovery from the rising star. Nonetheless, everything is looking like he’ll be back at full strength in the coming months.
As for Burrow, he’ll be coming back after a strong rookie season. Despite playing in just ten games and winning a mere two, Burrow totaled 2,688 yards and had five 300-yard performances in his first seven games.
With 13 touchdowns and 5 interceptions, Burrow will be looking to build off his success last season. For the Bengals, they’ll be living or dying by Burrow as their three backups have little combined NFL experience.
