Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said last week that quarterback Joe Burrow‘s return to game action would be a brief one and he was true to his word.

Burrow played three snaps in Sunday’s preseason game against the Dolphins before returning to the bench. His only pass was dropped by wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, but Burrow came out of the contest feeling like he’s all set for the start of the regular season.

“Yes. We are ready to go,” Burrow said in his postgame press conference. “I’m excited about this next week. We have a chance to get our minds right. This will not be as taxing on the body. We have a chance to physically be ready for Week One. I’m excited to get a game plan and get ready to go.”

The Vikings will be the first team up for Burrow and the Bengals in the regular season and the prospect of seeing the 2020 first overall pick fully back in action should make for plenty of interested parties on September 12.

  1. Maybe instead of using the #5 pick in the draft to select a WR who can’t catch anything they should have gotten an OL so Burrow doesn’t get another broken leg this year. I get that Chase is Burrow’s buddy from LSU but Chase sure isn’t doing his buddy any favors by dropping everything in sight.

  2. Bengals should really think about maybe having a third down QB and only having Burrow in a couple of plays per drive and I’m not joking. It worked for the Colts last season. Their offensive line is highly overhyped and benefitted both last season and Andrew Lucks final season from them having a QB package for Jacoby Brissett to throw defenses off their game and helping both brittle #1 QB’s recover.

  3. Burrow will be fine as long as he doesn’t face that WFT defense , a lot of QBs don’t get that comfort😀
