Bengals QB Burrow Returns To The Practice Field; Set To Return For Week One Vs Vikings

Videos by OutKick

Last season, first-overall pick quarterback Joe Burrow was having an excellent season when he suffered a torn ACL and MCL against the Washington Football Team in Week 11.

Burrow had thrown for 2,688 yards with 13 touchdowns and five picks when he got hurt. He then underwent knee surgery, which put him on the shelf for most of the winter.

Now it sounds more and more like he’ll be ready for Week One when the Bengals play the Minnesota Vikings at home.

A Burrow workout video made the rounds on various social media platforms, showcasing his approach to training this offseason. And then on Tuesday, Burrow showed up to Bengals camp.

“He’s on track for full go for start of the season,” Dr. Neal ElAttrache texted to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“He’s doing all the work. He’s worked his tail off and been an amazingly mature participant in his recovery. He’s focused and great to work with.”

Burrow expressed his desire to get back to throwing, and he was able to do that Tuesday, a sure sign that he’s ready to get back to work and help the Bengals win.
