Zac Taylor: Joe Burrow will be back in when he’s ready


Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow underwent an appendectomy earlier this week and has been away from the facility ever since.

There still doesn’t appear to be any concern that Burrow will be out for too long. But at this point, the Bengals don’t have a firm date for when he’ll be back.

“I don’t have any timetable,” head coach Zac Taylor said on Saturday, via Kelsey Conway of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “We’re just trying to give him some privacy, and I’m sure he’ll be back in when he’s ready.”

Once Burrow’s back, there’s a chance he’ll have an acclimation period before getting back to being a full participant. But Taylor wasn’t sure if that will be the case or what it could look like.

“That’s hard for me to predict right now, so I’ll just stay away from making that prediction,” Taylor said.

The Bengals play the Cardinals in their first preseason game on Aug. 13.

  1. Pats “fans” are in shambles they’re desperate for other QBs to be better than Allen because they’re trotting out a third stringer.


  2. This will be good for the backups to get some real playing time while Joe heals.

  3. Had an appendectomy several years ago and two weeks after I was still having some discomfort. Especially if it bursts. He’ll be fine but it’s only been a week…

  4. Oh man, the Super bowl hangover is in full swing. No Tyler Higbee, no OBJ and the Rams leveled the Bengals chi. The Bengals won’t even be a playoff team this year

  5. I’m a Lion fan, Joe Burrow is a beast. Before last years draft I wanted Jamarr Chase all offseason and the Bengals took him. We got Penei Sewell so it worked out fine, but when you gave Joe his guy the Bengals just took off. Remember in the offseason everyone hating on Chase and his hands. Joe Cool

    Yeah, he’s also the NFL Comeback Player of the Year and better than your QB.
