CINCINNATI (WXIX) - It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but Joe Burrow is unlikely to play in either of the two remaining preseason games.

Burrow is three weeks removed from appendectomy surgery.

When he met with the media Wednesday, the third-year quarterback said the surgery altered plans.

Burrow returned to the practice field on Sunday for the first time since the July 26 surgery.

As he continues to recover and build his strength back up, fans should not be surprised that he does not anticipate playing in the preseason.

When it comes to Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Burrow has full confidence he will be good to go.

The Bengals are back on the field Sunday against the New York Giants and finish up the preseason at Paycor Stadium on Aug. 27 vs the Los Angeles Rams.
