Bengals: 3 things to watch in preseason finale vs. Dolphins
By Alex Austin
Will Joe Burrow get his first game action of the year for the Cincinnati Bengals?
Joe Burrow has made it clear that he wants to play. Zac Taylor needs to determine if Burrow shaking off the rust, gaining chemistry and confidence, and listening to his franchise quarterbacks’ wishes are worth the risk of injury in a game that does not count. This is the last chance Burrow will have to get back into game action before every throw and drive matter.
It’s been reported that Joe Burrow will indeed play, but how much will he play?
Fans have been waiting to see Burrow again ever since he went down injured last year. As the franchise quarterback, everyone is hoping he can come back stronger than ever and help lead what should be a tremendous offense. Rather than just seeing clips from practice, this would be an opportunity for the national media to see how far Burrow has come in his rehab.
This is likely the biggest question mark in terms of playing time for the Bengals. Most of the other starters on both offense and defense have seen a series or two throughout the other games and have been able to (hopefully) shake the rust off and be in the best position possible to start the season.
