Joe Burrow is fully cleared for football activities, but the Cincinnati Bengals won't rush the quarterback back into action.

During the team's annual media luncheon Monday, Bengals owner and president Mike Brown said the team will likely withhold Burrow from the team's three preseason games.

"We probably aren't going to put him out there until we get to the season because we don't want to risk anything with him," Brown said. "But his effort rehabbing was A-plus."

Burrow tore multiple ligaments in his left knee in the team's loss to Washington on Nov. 22.
