According to Ian Rapoport, Burrow is having surgery to remove his appendix and he will be missing some practice time as a result.
Burrow, the top overall draft pick in 2020, overcame a major left knee injury sustained during his rookie season to lead the Bengals to their first Super Bowl appearance in 33 years.
He is getting set to enter the third year of his rookie contract. The team will have the ability to extend Burrow’s rookie deal by a year because of his status as a former first-round draft pick.
“It’s crazy the number that these guys are putting up, and I think it’s well deserved,” Burrow said in June when asked about the recent deals given to Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers and Cleveland’s Deshaun Watson. “All those guys are playing at the top of their game. They’re being paid accordingly. But really, I haven’t thought about it much right now.”
He completed 70% of his passes for 4,611 yards, 34 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions.
