Joe Burrow Thinks He'll Be Throwing By OTAs

Monday, January 8, 12:08 PM

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (wrist) thinks he can be ready to throw by organized team activities this offseason, but he's not completely sure of his timeline as he recovers from season-ending surgery on his right wrist. The 27-year-old signal-caller had a lost season in 2023, first suffering a calf injury in training camp that kept him out of the preseason and was responsible for both him and the Bengals offense getting off to a slow start in the regular season. Burrow's wrist injury caused him to miss the final seven games, and he finished with a career-low 2,309 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions in 10 games. Even if Burrow isn't quite ready to throw by OTAs this spring, he should be fully recovered by the time training camp starts at the end of July.

Justin Fields Says He Wants To Stay In Chicago

Wednesday, February 21, 11:52 PM

During an appearance on the St. Brown Bros podcast, Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields, who has been the subject of trade rumors since the Bears secured the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft, said on Wednesday that he wants to stay in Chicago. "If it was up to me I would stay in Chicago. I love the city. The city's lit. The fans there, they're great. But it's a business. I ain't got no control over it, so whatever happens happens," Fields said. The 24-year-old said the Bears haven't informed him what they plan to do. Multiple teams, including the Falcons, will surely be interested in the dual-threat QB if the Bears indeed plan to trade him. Fields missed some time with injury in 2023 but showed improvement late in the year and will almost certainly be in play as a QB1 in fantasy in 2024, perhaps even more so if he's traded.
