Joe Burrow will likely not be at the first Bengals practice. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media Insiders, Joe Burrow is undergoing surgery to remove his appendix.
This is not a serious surgery, but he could miss some time to heal. Burrow has recovered from a torn ACL, an appendectomy is nothing that will slow him down. Do not expect him to miss any regular season time. Burrow is going to be getting a huge contract soon, so the Bengals will make sure he is taken care of in the hospital.
This is smart for Burrow to take care of this problem now in the pre-season.
The regular season starts on September 11 when, for the first time ever, the team’s opener is against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium.
