WATCH: Burrow is back. Bengals QB returns to practice

He has been out since second day of training camp with calf injury

CINCINNATI — Joe Burrow is back to work with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The fourth-year quarterback has been out since suffering a right calf strain on the second day of training camp July 27.

On Wednesday, the first day of practice following the roster cutdown to 53 players, Burrow walked out to the Kettering Health Practice Fields alongside backup Jake Browning and new No. 3 quarterback Will Grier, who the Bengals signed to their practice squad after he was cut by the Dallas Cowboys.

Burrow was dressed to practice and warmed up and stretched. He was not wearing the protective sleeve he was seen wearing at times in the locker room and in the handful of practices he attended as a spectator in camp. He had done some tossing before the preseason opener inside Paycor Stadium on Aug. 11 but wasn’t seen doing any other activity when media was present and did not travel to the last two preseason games.

The Bengals are beginning preparation for the regular-season opener Sept. 10 at Cleveland.
