CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) - Injured quarterback Joe Burrow says he’ll be ready for the Cincinnati Bengals’ season opener on Sept. 12.

The former Athens High School quarterback had surgery on his left knee in December, and he said it’s back to 80 to 85%.

Wearing a knee brace, he threw on the practice field on the first day of organized team activities in which every eligible Bengals player took part.

Burrow has been throwing for weeks as part of his rehab, but got an opportunity to throw to teammates, including this year’s fifth overall draft pick, Ja’Marr Chase, his former teammate at LSU.
