Joe Burrow will miss part of training camp after appendectomy

CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow had a successful appendectomy, but there is no timetable for his return to the field, coach Zac Taylor said Wednesday.

Taylor said he didn’t expect the star quarterback to be behind in practice. Burrow underwent surgery on Tuesday and Taylor expected Burrow to be released from the hospital on Wednesday, which was the first official day of practice for the Bengals.

“The good news is he’s been in the system for two years,” Taylor said. “He knows that. He still has his iPad. He’s not going to be behind the 8 ball.”

Backups Brandon Allen and Jake Browning will take the snaps until Burrow’s return, likely in a couple of weeks.

The Bengals are coming off their first AFC Championship and Super Bowl appearance in 33 seasons. Burrow completed 70.4% of his passes last season for 4,611 yards and 34 touchdowns.

On Monday, Bengals owner Mike Brown acknowledged that the team was already restructuring finances to be able to meet Burrow’s salary demands in the upcoming contract. He is eligible for trade after this season.

NOTES: Taylor says G Alex Cappa and HB Samaje Perine have been removed from the physically unable to perform list and will return to action.
