Last month, Cincinnati Bengals superstar quarterback Joe Burrow suffered a calf injury during practice and has been sidelined for the vast majority of the preseason. But this week, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan provided an update.
“To my eyes, he looks like he is progressing the way he’s supposed to,” Callahan said according to Russ Heltman of SI.com. “I don’t see him a lot doing things. I probably see him as much as you guys do. So I don’t go watch his rehab or anything like that, but I feel good about everything I’ve heard and seen so far.”
But even though Burrow has missed the vast majority of the team’s preseason, Callahan doesn’t think that will be difficult for him to get ready for the upcoming season, especially given the continuity in the offensive scheme.
“He’s still able to throw to some degree,” Callahan said. “So I don’t think that part is going to be all that difficult for him. Take a couple of days just getting back into rhythm with the receivers, but these guys have played so much football together that doesn’t concern me so much and he’s not trying to put weight on like he was last year or anything like that. He’s in good shape, so I don’t think it would take him very long.”
We’ll have to see how Burrow looks when he returns to the field.
