“It feels good, it felt really good today. Optimistic. It feels good to be back on the field,” Burrow said about his work today and how his surgically-repaired left knee felt.

Burrow said his injured knee is around 80 to 85 percent from where he wants it to be following surgery, recovery, and strength training following the injury.

“At this point, there’s not a lot of thing that I can’t do, its just getting it stronger,” Burrow said.

During the OTAs today, Burrow wore a knee brace, but said it wasn’t his favorite, but he’ll continue to find one he’s comfortable with.

The Bengals will continue this part of the OTAs through Wednesday. OTAs will resume later in June.
