Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow returned to practice in full pads Wednesday for the first time since suffering a calf injury at the beginning of training camp.

Burrow was carted off the field July 27 after he went down with a non-contact injury when he rolled out of the pocket in practice.

Head coach Zac Taylor said the next day that Burrow would be out “several weeks” due to a calf strain. Burrow has been participating in throwing sessions over the last couple of weeks.

Burrow hasn’t missed a game in the NFL since tearing his ACL in Week 10 of his rookie campaign. Jake Browning is the only other quarterback on the active roster after the Bengals released Trevor Siemian on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old Burrow is looking for a new contract as he enters his fourth season in the NFL. Star quarterbacks Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson, and Justin Herbert signed lucrative deals this offseason.

Burrow has thrown for 11,774 yards and 82 touchdowns in 42 career games. The Bengals kick off their season Sept. 10 against the Cleveland Browns.
