The Cincinnati Bengals will classify quarterback Joe Burrow as “day to day” as he finishes up recovering from undergoing surgery to have his appendix removed.

The news about tight end Drew Sample from Bengals head coach Zac Taylor isn’t as rosy. Sample went down with an injury on Thursday and left the field on a cart.

According to Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic, Taylor says the Bengals “probably dodged a bullet” with Sample’s injury and that he should only be out a few weeks with the left knee injury.

With Sample sidelined, Mitchell Wilcox, Thaddeus Moss and Scotty Washington will be among those getting a chance to take notable reps.

While the team doesn’t want to put an official timeline on Burrow’s return for obvious reasons, it’s reasonable to expect he’ll be back throwing within the next week, especially after “running” sprints from his golf cart the other day.
