It’s the latest positive step forward for Burrow as he looks to get back on track in 2021. The Bengals are hoping he can build off the promise he displayed last season before his injury.

Burrow demonstrated control of the offense while his play improved as the campaign rolled along. Although he’s medically cleared, the Bengals will likely take precautionary steps to avoid any setbacks before next season.

Early reports suggest Burrow will sit most, if not the entire preseason. It’s nothing out of the ordinary as more teams have adopted that approach to keep their players fresh for the regular season.

The front office continues to add young talent to grow alongside him as he progresses as an NFL quarterback. It’s on him to take the next step forward while leading the team to success.
