Joe Burrow is expected to play for the Cincinnati Bengals against the Rams on Monday night, but is still dealing with a calf problem.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says the 26-year-old should start but is less than 100 percent.
He has been dealing with the calf problem he suffered early in training camp for the Bengals.
The Bengals have given Burrow every opportunity to be available for tonight’s game and prove he’s healthy.

Earlier on Monday, head coach Zach Taylor was at Paycor Stadium and still refused to tell ESPN whether his star man could play.
“We are not ready to announce a decision yet and will wait a few more hours before making the call,” he said.
But it now appears Burrow has been cleared to play, even with the Bengals previously signing Reid Sinnett from the practice squad, according to Rapoport.
The Bengals need their star man on Monday night – the team has lost its first two games of the season and is eagerly seeking its first win.
The season started with a 24-3 loss to the Browns and that was followed by a 27-24 loss at home to the Baltimore Ravens.
