Bengals' Joe Burrow recovering from appendectomy

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (appendectomy) will be "back in when he's ready," per head coach Zac Taylor.

What It Means:

Burrow is recovering from an appendectomy that he underwent last week. “I don’t have any timetable,” Taylor said. “We’re just trying to give him some privacy, and I’m sure he’ll be back in when he’s ready.” There isn't any concern about Burrow's availability for Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 11. Last season, Burrow led the league in yards per attempt (8.9) and adjusted yards per attempt (9.0) among qualified starters. His touchdown rate also jumped up from 3.2% his rookie season to 6.5% last year while ranking 15th in total pass attempts.

Burrow is the QB9 in numberFire's preseason rankings. Our models project him for 4,544.1 passing yards, 30.65 touchdowns and 7.4 interceptions, with 286.2 rushing yards and 2.44 touchdowns. In 2021, Burrow tied for seventh with Justin Herbert in Passing Net Expected Points per drop back (0.23), which was more than double the league average (0.10).
