Sunday summary just in case you missed something

  1. Joe Burrow, quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, returned to practice on Sunday after undergoing an appendectomy at the beginning of training camp. Head coach Zac Taylor was happy with his performance and said after practice:

“I thought he looked good. It’s good to get him involved. He did some individual, some 7-on-7’s , so that’s a good step in the right direction. We talked about doing 2 reps in 7-on-7 (drills), and then he took 10.”
