“I think things are good, and he’s progressing as he should,” said Taylor of Burrow’s recovery,” adding, ”I think everything has been positive.”
As for what Taylor hopes to see next:
”Just keep progressing the way that we’re doing with the trainers and strength staff. Just keep progressing that way.”
Hopefully, that progress leads to a healthy start in Week 1.
After suffering a calf injury on the second day of training camp, Joe Burrow has been sidelined for two weeks now, and it appears he won’t play at all in the preseason.
Thankfully, Burrow is clearly making progress in his rehab. He made his first public appearance Wednesday for the Bengals’ joint practice with the Packers.
The news got even better Friday prior to the Bengals vs. Packers matchup, as Burrow was seen throwing and running during pregame warmups.

The franchise QB looks like he’s doing just fine.

It’s still unclear when Burrow could return to practice. Head coach Zac Taylor has continued to repeat his ‘several weeks’ line in regard to Burrow being out for several weeks from when he suffered the initial injury.
But by the look of things, Burrow isn’t in serious danger of missing the Week 1 opener vs. the Cleveland Browns, so long as there aren’t any setbacks.
