Joe Burrow, QB (CIN)

Returns to team drills

Burrow (appendix) returned to team drills Wednesday but acknowledged he would still like to add weight before Week 1, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

While holding a news conference Wednesday for the first time since requiring an appendectomy July 26, Burrow relayed that he spent a few days in the hospital after a ruptured appendix necessitated the emergency procedure. He returned to 7-on-7 work Monday and is now participating in team drills, but he's not necessarily back to 100 percent strength less than a month after surgery. The Bengals seemingly expect him to get there in advance of their season opener Sept. 11 against Pittsburgh.
