After undergoing a left knee reconstruction, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is expected to be handed over in time for next season’s opener against the Minnesota Vikings on September 12, according to Dr. Neal ElAttrache .
“He’s on track to be 100% for the start of the season,” said ElAttrache, who operated Burrow in December. It does all the necessary work. He worked very hard and was very proactive in the rehabilitation process. It’s nice to work with him. «
Burrow had already told the Cris Collinsworth Podcast that he expected to be in his post by his due date in 2021, but ElAttrache is working hand in hand with the Bengals’ medical staff and they believe that goal is quite realistic.
Doctors are not recommending contact activities for nine months, however, which could keep Burrow on the sidelines during the preseason.
“We’re happy with the way he’s recovering. His knee is functioning perfectly despite the nature of his injury and the severity of his reconstruction, ”added ElAttrache.
Burrow was injured on November 22 in a loss to Washington and underwent surgery on December 2.
Prior to the incident, he demonstrated what made him the top pick overall in 2020. In 10 starts, he completed 65.3% of his passes for gains of 2,688 yards and 13 touchdowns against 5 interceptions.
