Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) is ‘all systems go’ for the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings, according to Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed the surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament on Dec. 2.
‘He’s on track for full go for the start of the season. He’s doing all the work. He’s worked his tail off and been an amazingly mature participant in his recovery. He’s focused and great to work with. … We are very happy with his recovery to say the least. Notwithstanding the nature of his injury and extent of his reconstruction, his knee is performing perfectly. We just had him tested out here with a high-tech video and biomechanical evaluation and he was ahead of where we anticipated and well into the return to performance phase of his recovery. With him already performing this way, it’s ‘all systems go’ for the start of the season,’ ElAttrache told ESPN’s Adam’s Schefter via text Tuesday, May 18.ESPN - Adam Schefter
