CINCINNATI — For those who asked Santa for Joe Burrow to have a full recovery, you got good news on Christmas Day.

Burrow, who tore his ACL and MCL in a season-ending injury, tweeted a video of himself walking slowly but steadily on Friday. The video gives fans hope for the 2021 season.

"Good week for the Bengals," Burrow tweeted with the video.

In November, WCPO asked former NFL trainer and co-founder of Oxford Physical Therapy Centers Ken Rusche what a realistic timeline might look like for Burrow’s recovery.

“You know, nine-12 months is very conservative. That’s maybe along the line of you and I,” Rusche said.

“With him and his rehab program being pretty much every day, five, six, seven, where he’ll be working a couple hours a day or whatever, could be a little bit better.”

“So, it could be more in that six- to nine-month range, but probably that eight- to 10-month range is probably a good indicator of when he will be able to come back.”
