Cincinnati Bengals star quarterback Joe Burrow has missed almost all of training camp and the preseason after suffering a calf injury last month, but wide receiver Tyler Boyd doesn’t sound too concerned about whether or not his quarterback’s absence will affect their rhythm.
Even though Joe Burrow has not been throwing to his receivers for several weeks and the season is fast approaching, Tyler Boyd has a brutally honest response to just how long he thinks it’ll take to get back in a rhythm with his quarterback.
“Not long,” Boyd said Wednesday according to Geoff Hobson of the Cincinnati Bengals team website. “About one drive.”
And Boyd made it clear that the “one drive” could come in either practice or in a game – it makes no difference to him.
“Whatever. It doesn’t matter,” Boyd said. “I’ve got years under my belt with him. Whatever play we call, I know what he’s expecting me to do and where I’m supposed to be in any coverage. So I’m pretty locked in on the chemistry. Just put him out there, we’ll make it work.”
While all signs point to a smooth recovery for Burrow, there has been no indication about when he will be able to return to practice for the team. But it doesn’t sound like Boyd is stressing about when that will happen.
