Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow returned to practice Sunday after undergoing an appendectomy at the beginning of training camp.

It’s unclear how much Burrow participated during the walk-through session.

The Bengals previously opted against giving a timeline for Burrow’s on-field return. The third-year signal-caller hasn’t been able to practice but has been a consistent presence at workouts and team meetings.

“He’s been plenty engaged,” head coach Zac Taylor said last week, according to ESPN’s Ben Baby. “I don’t think we need that to stimulate him. He does a pretty good job of that.”

The 25-year-old was seen running sprints prior to Cincinnati’s preseason opener Friday.

Burrow is coming off a breakout campaign, earning his debut Super Bowl appearance and the first for the Bengals since 1988.

He threw for 4,611 yards and 34 touchdowns against 14 interceptions during the regular season before racking up 1,105 and five TDs against three picks during the postseason.

Cincinnati opted to reinforce Burrow’s offensive line this offseason after the unit was exposed during the Super Bowl loss to the Los Angeles Rams, adding center Ted Karras, guard Alex Cappa, and right tackle La’el Collins.
