Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who had been hampered by a reaggravated calf strain, is active for Monday night's home game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Burrow went through a workout Monday morning and was trending toward starting for the Bengals (0-2) against the Rams (1-1) in the rematch of Super Bowl LVI, The Athletic reported.

Burrow was deemed questionable to play after tweaking his calf injury in the Bengals' Week 2 game. If Burrow were unavailable for the Bengals, backup Jake Browning would have made his first NFL start.

The Bengals signed AJ McCarron to their practice squad over the weekend as insurance. Cincinnati also signed quarterback Reid Sinnett to the practice squad on Friday after losing Will Grier off the practice squad to the New England Patriots.

Burrow practiced Friday and Saturday after he re-injured his right calf strain in last week's 27-24 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Burrow did not practice Thursday.

Burrow initially injured the calf on July 27, the second day of training camp, and felt a twinge again on the play before his second touchdown pass of the game to Tee Higgins.

Burrow has thrown for 304 yards and two touchdowns against one interception in the first two games.
