Breaking: Head Coach Confirms Significant Boost With Bengals Linked To Huge Trade For Sensational Star and Joe Burrow is…

Despite Joe Burrow’s season-ending right wrist injury in Week 11 last year, the Cincinnati Bengals appear optimistic about their star quarterback’s health.

Ahead of the start of OTAs on Tuesday, Bengals offensive coordinator Dan Pitcher spoke with Geoff Hobson of the team website, indicating that Burrow will not be limited in his participation.

“We designed the whole thing to stay within the constraints of where the medical people think he should be and where he wants to be right now,” Pitcher said, according to Hobson. “Nobody is sitting there with a special pitch counter. But we’ve been smart in how we put it together.”

Pitcher also suggested that Burrow is recovering well, noting that he has “all his range and power.”

Burrow, the former No. 1 overall pick, is widely regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, though his durability has been a concern. During his rookie season in 2020, he suffered a season-ending ACL tear, and he also injured his calf during training camp last season.

If Burrow can stay healthy, he could lead the Bengals to their first Super Bowl victory. The 27-year-old quarterback guided Cincinnati to Super Bowl LVI, where they narrowly lost 23-20 to the Los Angeles Rams. Burrow also leads active players in completion percentage (68%), according to Pro Football Reference.

The Bengals’ decision not to place Burrow on a pitch count is a promising sign, indicating confidence in his recovery and progress.

In 2021, Burrow won the Comeback Player of the Year award, and he could be in contention for it again this season. As of Monday, DraftKings has given him the second-best odds (+200) to win the award, behind New York Jets QB Aaron Rodgers.
