Cincinnati Bengals Practice Report: Joe Burrow Passes Biggest Test Yet

Full-padded practice will be the Cincinnati Bengals' hardest work of the week, as they prepare for the season opener in Cleveland.

The Cincinnati Bengals were in full pads for practice today, a session that quarterback Joe Burrow said would be a big test for his injured right calf and whether it will feel comfortable playing Sunday in Cleveland.

“We’re feeling out that process right now,” Burrow said during Wednesday’s news conference, his first in six weeks. “Tomorrow we’re in pads, and so speed will ramp up even more than today. Feel these next two days out and see where it is.”

Burrow was listed as a full participant during Wednesday’s practice, and he was again today.

All 53 players on the active roster were present again today, with defensive end Joseph Ossai continuing his work on the rehab field as he deals with a right ankle sprain suffered in the Aug. 26 preseason finale at Washington.

Ossai is expected to be inactive Sunday, but everyone else on the roster should be available. The only other players listed on Wednesday’s practice report were wide receiver Tyler Boyd (toe) and tackle D’Ante Smith (shoulder). Both were full participants.
