This week, the Cincinnati Bengals unveiled their new uniforms, and Burrow was one of the players modeling the gear. Things quickly went from attention to the new uniforms to Burrow’s left leg that showed off his massive ACL surgery scar.

Burrow had the surgery after tearing his ACL on Nov. 22, which ended his rookie season.

Burrow went to Instagram to comment on the scar. “If you die without any scars then you never did anything worth fighting for,” Burrow wrote.

In a recent interview on The Cris Collinsworth Podcast featuring Richard Sherman, Burrow said he is “ahead of schedule” and will be ready when the team starts the 2021 season in September.

“I’m expecting to be there on the first snap of 2021,” Burrow said per ESPN. When it comes to the recovery process, Burrow said halfway through, and the knee is improving. “I’m very optimistic about where I’m at and also where the team’s at,” Burrow said. “Rehab is going very, very well. Lifting is going very, very well. I’m in great shape. Legs feel good. Knee feels good.”

The 24-year-old played in 10 games for the Bengals last season and threw for 2,688 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions with an 89.8 passer rating. He had just come off one of the greatest college football seasons ever where he led the team to a national title and undefeated season.

He finished the year with 5,671 yards, 60 touchdowns and six interceptions while completing 76.3 percent of his passes.
