Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor on status of Joe Burrow: 'taking it day-to-day'

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor conducted his regularly scheduled press conference Thursday ahead of the "Monday Nigh Football" clash with the Los Angeles Rams.

The top question heading into the game is the availability of Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who "tweaked" his injured calf near the end of Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Taylor said the team is "taking it day-to-day right now," with Burrow and he'd doubt Burrow would be a full participant in Thursday's practice.

"Soreness is an issue right now," Taylor added. "So giving him some time is best. I think we just gotta keep the conversation going every day and see where he's at."

Burrow did appear at Bengals practice with his right leg in a sleeve, according to The Enquirer's Charlie Goldsmith. Despite warming up, Burrow was officially listed as a "did not participate" in Thursday's practice, according to the team's official injury report.

Prior to reaggravating his calf on the team's final possession of Sunday's 27-24 loss to Baltimore, Burrow and the offense found a groove for the first time this season. After starting the game with two punts, the Bengals offense scored three times in its final five drives with one punt and one costly redzone turnover.

"I mean that last game, aside from the interception, find me one bad ball placement. You're not going to. So, I thought he performed really well," Taylor said. "Can't have the turnover obviously, but aside from that, I thought he gave us exactly what we needed."

Bengals defensive end Joseph Ossai (ankle) making progress

Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Jospeh Ossai was a full participant in practice Thursday. Ossai has been out since suffering a high ankle sprain in the preseason finale against the Washington Commanders.

In the secondary, safeties Tycen Anderson (calf) and starter Nick Scott (concussion) were limited. Scott is trying to get back in time to play against his former team Monday. The 2019 seventh-round pick spent his first four seasons with the Rams before signing a three-year deal with the Bengals in March.
