The Cincinnati Bengals enter the season as one of the biggest threats to the reigning AFC Champions, the Kansas City Chiefs.
Needless to say, their Super Bowl aspirations took a major dip without Joe Burrow, who missed most of the training camp with an injured calf.
There were major concerns about Burrow’s availability for the first game of the season, but that’s no longer the case.
The former No. 1 pick was back at practice for the first time since walking off the field with that injury weeks ago.
He even took matters into his own hands to let everybody know that he was back, taking to social media to share a now-viral pic of him donning LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers jersey to celebrate his return to Ohio (via Dov Kleiman).

As usually happens, that picture went viral with internet detectives began digging for as much information as they could.
Clearly, the Ohio State and LSU product is a big fan of LeBron, who fulfilled his promise of delivering a championship for his hometown team.
Now, Burrow needs to draw inspiration from that epic return to also help the Bengals go the distance and wrap their hands around the Vince Lombardi trophy.
They were quite close to it two years ago and knocked on the door again last season.NEXT: Analyst Has Bold Suggestion For Joe Burrow In Week 1
