In Bengals news, Joe Burrow returned to practice for the first time since he injured his calf in training camp. Also, who made the Cincinnati Bengals' practice squad?

Burrow has yet to have a regular training camp/preseason since entering the league in 2020. That first year was during the pandemic, in 2021 he was recovering from his ACL surgery, in 2022 he had an appendectomy, and this year, he had a calf strain on just the second day of practice.

Well, fortunately, Burrow was back at it on Wednesday and looked a-okay.

In other news, the Bengals could put their practice squad together starting on Wednesday. Some names who made the cut include Allan George, Will Grier, Tanner Hudson, Jaxson Kirkland, and Kwamie Lassiter.

"Despite Taylor's mum responses when asked about Burrow's progress, the Bengals have been optimistic the quarterback would be ready to take the field Week 1. Getting him back to practice this week keeps that path on course."
