One of the lingering questions surrounding Joe Burrow is how will he bounce back after suffering a season-ending injury during the 2020 campaign? So far, not so good.
Burrow has reportedly been pretty awful during Bengals‘ practices so far. Even Burrow’s teammate, Tyler Boyd, talked to reporters about his quarterback’s struggles earlier this week.
“I think he’s kind of a little iffy on his knee, but it’s kind of hard to tell,” Boyd said on Wednesday, via CBS Sports. “In my opinion, I feel like he’s ready to go, but I also think he doesn’t want to do too much.”
Burrow himself is starting to boil over with frustrations following an ugly start at training camp. He told reporters his frustration level is “up there” on Saturday. This isn’t good.

Luckily Joe Burrow still has plenty of time to get things turned around. It’s still early in training camp. The regular season doesn’t start until the weekend of Sept. 12. Bouncing back from a season-ending knee injury takes time, too.
If there’s anything to be concerned about regarding Burrow and the Bengals, it’s their offensive line. The unit was below-average last season, and the Bengals didn’t do all too much to improve it.
Cincinnati had an opportunity to take an offensive lineman with its No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. The Bengals, instead, took Ja’Marr Chase, who could prove to be a superstar but wasn’t a position of need at the time.
Burrow must not feel too secure playing in the Bengals offense so far. It could be because of his season-ending injury. It could also be because Cincinnati’s offensive line isn’t holding up too well. Either way, the Bengals could be in trouble.
