Former LSU quaterback Joe Burrow received some great news Tuesday.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache of Kerlan-Jobe in Los Angeles, who performed Burrow's reconstructive left knee surgery said Tuesday that the Bengals quarterback is 'on track for full go for the start of the season.' Per ESPN:

"He's on track for full go for start of the season," ElAttrache, who operated on Burrow in December, wrote in a text. "He's doing all the work. He's worked his tail off and been an amazingly mature participant in his recovery. He's focused and great to work with."

Burrow had told "The Cris Collinsworth Podcast" that he expected to be there for the first snap in 2021. But now ElAttrache is working with the Bengals' medical staff on Burrow's rehabilitation, and they believe that goal is well within reach.

Doctors do not want any contact until nine months, which could lead to Burrow sitting out the preseason. But the goal, now well within reach, is to be ready for the start of the regular season.

"We are very happy with his recovery to say the least," ElAttrache said. "Notwithstanding the nature of his injury and extent of his reconstruction, his knee is performing perfectly.

I hope Joe gets a second opinion before he steps behind the Bengals offensive linemen.

If Kerlan-Jobe says he'll be ready, he'll be ready.

Awesome to hear that Joe will be good to go! He has a new offensive line with a secret weapon from LSU to work with as well. I can’t wait to see them compete this year.
