What Hopkins and Burrow have shown Zac Taylor in practice has been enough. The third-year head coach is confident he’ll have both in the starting lineup on Sept. 12 when the Bengals host the Minnesota Vikings, regardless of if they take a preseason snap or not.
The story said Burrow could see preseason action this week but that's yet to be determined. Taylor said the team will take a couple of more days to decide but they seem just fine giving Burrow more rest leading up to Sept. 12. Burrow tore his ACL and MCL back in Week 11 of the 2020 season.
