“It’s another speed bump,” Joe Burrow gives an important update on his return date following appendix surgery

Joe Burrow gave fans an update on his return date to practice during his media interaction.

Joe Burrow has finally made a return to the Cincinnati Bengals training camp after he underwent appendix surgery in July, which kept him out of action for the past few days. The Bengals quarterback who is one of the best in his position has not had the best of luck with injuries plaguing him all throughout his career in the offseason.


The 25-year-old suffered an ACL tear during his rookie season in 2020-21, which kept him out of action in the 2021 offseason, and the one before that prior to his rookie season, the pandemic had gripped the entire world. Therefore at this point, Joe Burrow simply hopes for a normal offseason for the rest of his career.

Making an appearance in front of the media, on his first day back to the camp, he revealed the nature of his injury and how he has recuperated from it, and nearing his complete 100% fitness, before the start of the 2022 NFL season.

“It wasn’t the normal appendicitis as you hear about it. I didn’t really feel much. Just getting checked out and had some discomfort and so we thought we’d get it checked out. Turns out, I had it, so we had to get it fixed,” Joe Burrow said. “Not ideal timing obviously, but glad it happened now and not halfway through the year.”

“I just think my whole career has been coming back from speed bumps and adversity and so I don’t know anything else,” Burrow said, via WCPO. “It’s just another speed bump in the way. It is what it is, gotta come back from it. You control what you can control, and this is what we are dealing with right now.”

Joe Burrow further stated that he would not be playing the Bengals’ Week 3 preseason game, but he hopes to return to 11v11 training next week. All in all, it is a good sign for the Bengals fans, that he will be ready for their first regular season encounter against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
