CINCINNATI — Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow jogged, walked around and even made a couple casual tosses during Monday's practice.
The 25-year-old is still recovering after undergoing an appendectomy on July 26.
It's a good sign that he's improving, although no timetable has been given for his potential return to practice.
"I think what you see is what you get. He looks good to me," head coach Zac Taylor said. "He's starting to get better every single day. Again, I don't want to put a timeline on when he gets out here and starts throwing and stuff, but it's been encouraging. He's back to himself in meetings and so looking good."
Here are some other takeaways from Monday's session.
Higgins Makes 1-on-1 Debut
Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins was impressive on Monday afternoon. The 23-year-old still isn't working in 11-on-11 drills, but he did go through 1-on-1s.
Higgins shook Eli Apple to make a nice catch on the near sideline. Then he skied over Cam Taylor-Britt in the end zone to snatch away what would've been a 5-yard touchdown.
Drue Makes Push
Monday's session was a special teams aficionado's dream. Darrin Simmons was in heaven, as he put his guys through a plethora of drills.
Drue Chrisman got the better of Kevin Huber on Monday. Both guys had some impressive punts, but Chrisman's leg strength was on full display throughout the session.
It's also worth noting that Evan McPherson made every kick he attempted on Monday, including the ones with Chrisman as the holder.
Chidobe Awuzie Continues to Have a Stellar Camp
Awuzie won two out of three 1-on-1 matchups with Ja'Marr Chase. How many cornerbacks in the NFL can say that?
The veteran continues to fly under the radar, but his size, athleticism and footwork give him a chance against anyone.
Awuzie even took part in some kickoff coverage drills as a returner. He looked good doing it, even though there's zero chance the Bengals put their top corner back there to return kicks this season.
