CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow says he is almost back to 100% following surgery to repair a torn ACL and MCL.

Speaking with the media on Wednesday, Burrow said he is “feeling great” as he continues the rehab process.

It has been a little more than seven months since he tore his ACL and MCL against the Washington Football Team on Nov. 22, 2020.

He said the knee “felt really good” when the Bengals took the field Organized Team Activities two months ago.

In May, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Burrow is “all systems go” for the regular-season opener on Sept. 12 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Once the games do begin, Burrow does not plan on letting his knee change the way he plays.

“I’m just going to play the way that I play,” Burrow told media members. “I’m excited to see how it feels and see if I can still make those plays that I did.”

Cincinnati will kick off preseason play on the road against the defending Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14.
