Coach Zac Taylor was pretty much tight-lipped about Burrow after the Bengals’ first preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

“I think things are good, and he’s progressing as he should,” he said.

Taylor said the objective was for Burrow “to get some throws in.”

“I think everything has been positive,” he added.

Taylor was asked what’s the next step for Burrow.

“Just keep progressing the way that we’re doing with the trainers and strength staff,” he answered. “Just keep progressing that way.”
