CINCINNATI -- Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow underwent an appendectomy and there is no timetable for his return to the practice field, coach Zac Taylor said Wednesday.

Taylor said Burrow had surgery Tuesday and that he expected Burrow to be released from the hospital Wednesday, which happened to be the first official day of workouts for the Bengals.

"The good news is he has two years in (the system)," Taylor said. "He knows it. He still has his iPad. He won't be behind the 8 ball.''

The medical situation comes during the acclimation period of training camp. Teams are not permitted to have line contact through the first five days of camp, according to the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players' union.

Cincinnati is coming off its first AFC championship and Super Bowl appearance in 33 seasons. Last year, Burrow completed 70.4% of his passes for 4,611 yards, 34 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
