Thirty-one days after suffering a devastating knee injury and more than three weeks after having the knee surgically repaired, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is back on his feet.

Burrow has posted video of himself walking deliberately but without a limp on social media.

“Good week for the Bengals” was the message he attached to the 12-second clip.

Burrow suffered a torn ACL and MCL on November 24, ending prematurely a special rookie season. There’s concern that he may not be ready to go in time for Week One of the 2021 season. Burrow seems to be determined to make it happen.

The 3-10-1 Bengals started the week with an upset of the Steelers on Monday Night Football.

  1. Does that mean he’s ready to come back next week? Come on let’s start the – he’s soft – talk right now and get it over with

  2. He could easily make it back for the start of the season. Just give Adrian Peterson a call and get hooked up with some of the good HGH.

    FYI- When you say you could care less, it means you care. If you’re trying to say you don’t care, you should say you couldn’t care less.

    Good too see Joe on his feet! Hope he’s ready to go for camp!🤞🏼

  4. Joe Burrow’s just doing his job. Now the rest of the team and organization have to do theirs by securing Penei Sewell’s services for the next decade-plus. And for that, they can’t afford another W.

  5. The physical recovery is the easiest part of the process. The tough part is the psychological part. Having had an almost identical injury and surgery and having had athletes on several of my teams I notice that it is how confident the person is of the knee after rehab. Sometimes that takes a while. I found that cross training was good and that a a 10 day canoe/hiking trip in Canada was even better. You have to gain confidence in the repair. With Joe it may be the first time he gets hit after going back to practice. Good Luck Joe, I hope the Browns and Coaches discover they need to provide adequate protection of your talent and skill.

    Agreed, the medical community has made career ending injuries into year ending injuries quick successfully. Its mostly up to the players to stick to their rehab (not doing too much too soon) and not being afraid of another injury when they’re back on the field.

    I remember when Carson Palmer came back form the same injury. In his first preseason game he went for a sneak and everyone held their collective breath. After the game he said he wanted to get his first hit out of the way.

    I have a feeling Burrow will be the same way. Fortunately, as good as he is physically, it seems like he’s mentally and emotionally set up to be the type of person who can handle this whole situation (based upon all of the reporting). You never know how someone will handle an injury like this, but Joe seems like he’s going to be able to crush his return.
