Tyler Boyd on Joe Burrow: 'He's a Little Iffy' on His Knee

The star receiver knows Burrow is still working his way back.

CINCINNATI — Joe Burrow is hoping to pick up where he left off after suffering a torn left ACL last November. 

The 24-year-old has been fully cleared, but he's off to a slow start in training camp. 

"I think he looks good. Just by watching him move around in the pocket. His pocket presence I’ve seen seems great," Tyler Boyd said on Wednesday. "He’s kind of a little iffy on his knee, but it is kind of hard to tell. In my opinion, I feel like he’s ready to go. I also feel he don’t want to do too much. We are not going out there trying to destroy a defense. We aren’t going out there worried about killing them and trying to score every single play. It’s a whole unit thing so we have to make sure all 11 guys are tied into that play knowing their exact job. Just figuring out the progression. I think he’s on the right track."

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor mentioned the offense was still in the installation process. That's at least part of the reason why they've gotten off to a slow start. 

Things are expected to change when the team resumes practice on Friday. Burrow will be back on the field after resting on Wednesday. 

"The install is coming to a completion here. You're putting in X amount of plays on offense and defense these first 10 days, and then after that, you set the reset button, let's go play some football, get ready for this first game," Taylor said. "So now as we get to about a week out from that first game, you're going to see way more moving the ball up and down the field to get guys in the flow, have to sustain eight-play, 10-play drives. Right now it's all four to five-play stuff, so that part is exciting, and that's when you'll be able to have a measuring stick on where this team is at is next week when we start doing more of that before that first game."

The early struggles aren't a major issue, but it would be good to see the offense show signs of life on Friday.

The Bengals first preseason game is against the Buccaneers on Saturday, Aug. 14 in Tampa Bay.
