Bengals QB Joe Burrow resumes throwing at offseason workouts

Joe Burrow threw to Cincinnati Bengals receivers Monday for the first time since undergoing wrist surgery in November.

Bengals coach Zac Taylor had said in March that Burrow was “right on schedule” with his rehab and they expected him to participate in the team’s offseason program.

That’s exactly what the former Pro Bowl quarterback did at the team’s facility Monday. Practice was closed to the media as Phase 2 of the team’s offseason training began, but according to the team’s website, Burrow played catch with teammates after spending some of his recovery throwing by himself.

“He looked like he did last year. He looked smooth,” wideout Trenton Irwin said. “I didn’t see anything different.”

Brad Kragthorpe, who was promoted from assistant quarterbacks coach to quarterbacks coach this offseason and has been with the Bengals since 2019, also gave a positive review.

“I think he looked as quick and as athletic as I’ve seen him look,” Kragthorpe said. “He looked like the Joe Burrow we’re used to seeing. I didn’t see any difference. I thought the ball came out of his hand well. Confidently. I’m happy where he’s at.”

Burrow suffered an injury to his right (throwing) wrist in mid-November and underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament.

In his four NFL seasons, Burrow has completed 68 percent of his passes for 14,083 yards and 97 touchdowns in 52 games. He led Cincinnati to a Super Bowl appearance after the 2021 season, when he led the league with a 70.4 percent completion rate.

In September, Burrow signed a five-year contract extension worth $275 million. He is the highest-paid player in NFL history on an annual basis, making $55 million per year.
