The Cincinnati Bengals appear to be getting quarterback Joe Burrow back after missing the last couple of weeks following his appendectomy.
Since the surgery, Burrow has been at Bengals’ practices driving around the field in a cart but had yet to return to participating in practices.
While Burrow did not play in Friday night’s first preseason game, he was seen running sprints during the pre-game warmups which was another good sign towards his return to the field.
On Sunday, Burrow returned to the practice field as he was seen coming back from a walkthrough with a jersey on and his helmet in his hand, according to Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic.

That is obviously great news.
While it is unclear just how much Burrow did during Sunday morning’s practice, Mike Petraglia tweeted out a video of Burrow in pads throwing and warming up for the afternoon practice before the team before the team went back indoors due to weather.
With the 2022 season opener still four weeks away, Burrow has plenty of time to get fully healed and back up to speed with his teammates.
