QB Joe Burrow is going through a workout this morning. I'm told there's optimism he will play and his status for tonight is trending in the right direction, per sources.
Russini pointed out, however, that Burrow's status is still uncertain for MNF as of now, so owners who need him will want monitor his status until the inactives are announced. The Bengals sit at 0-2 and this is as close to a must-win as they want to get this early in the season. Russini added Burrow is campaigning with the coaching staff and trainers to play. If Burrow can't go, Browning would get the start. If needed, Burrow owners may also be able to grab Matthew Stafford or Baker Mayfield against the Eagles in the other Monday night game if they don't trust Browning.
