CINCINNATI — Bengals head coach Zac Taylor had some good news to share on Monday afternoon when he met with local reporters during media day.
Star quarterback Joe Burrow has been fully cleared for all football activities and won't be limited when training camp begins on Wednesday.
"He's cleared to do everything," Taylor said with a smile.
The 24-year-old is coming off of a devastating knee injury that cut his rookie season short. Burrow underwent surgery in December. It was always his goal to be fully cleared for training camp.
Despite being allowed to participate in all football activities, fans shouldn't expect to see Burrow suit up this preseason.
"His effort rehabbing was A-plus," Bengals owner Mike Brown said. "We probably aren't going to put him out there until we get to the season because we don't want to risk anything with him."
It's not a shock to hear that Burrow probably won't take the field this preseason. He will be participating in 11-on-11 drills during practice in hopes of simulating what it'll be like when he makes his return to live action against the Vikings on Sept. 12.
"It's football. You gotta let him get out there and experience it," Taylor said. "You can't be overprotective."
