After undergoing an appendectomy, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has been back at the facility this week. And while he’s been on the field, he hasn’t been practicing yet.
Head coach Zac Taylor said in his Friday press conference that Burrow is still considered “day-to-day,” while declining to put a timetable on when the QB will return to practice.
Taylor added that he wouldn’t consider having Burrow call plays or anything like that during the sessions.
“I don’t think that’s necessary for him,” Taylor said. “I think he’s been pretty locked in and focused. He’s in the meetings and helping lead some of the meetings — like he was today. So he’s been plenty engaged and I don’t think we need that to stimulate him. He does a pretty good job with that.”
Taylor declined to say how he thought Burrow was feeling so that he wasn’t speaking for the signal-caller. But the plan remains to just take things day by day and eventually ramp Burrow up for the regular season.
“So, we’ll progress,” Taylor said. “Hate to put a timeline on it. He’s getting a lot of good mental work right now.”
