Burrow has fans fearing his season may be over after going down in practice with a non-contact injury which head coach Zac Taylor has confirmed is a calf strain.
Chase, meanwhile, told reporters he doesn’t believe the injury is a serious one because Burrow nodded to him while still on the field, a motion they typically use to let each other know they are okay.
“We always give each other that nod,” he explained, per Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic. “He gave me a nod [to say] he’s all right. He’s a strong dude.”
Burrow could be ready to go by the time the season begins. The Bengals would be happy with him missing some time during training camp as long as he could play in their opener.
Now one of the best QBs in the league, Burrow threw for 4,475 yards, 35 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions last season, completing 68.3 percent of his passes.
