“So that’s my approach going into every day of rehab. If I wake up, and I’m like, ‘Oh, man, it’s a little sore,’ it doesn’t matter… Right when I put my feet on the ground, it’s go time. Let’s get this rehab going. Let’s do everything I can to make sure I’m ready and available to play. That’s kind of where my mind is,” Bengals tight end CJ Uzomah.

We’ll see if Uzomah can participate in Super Bowl 56. He still has to go through some protocols for his knee injury. The Bengals haven’t ruled him out yet, so there is still hope he can play against the Rams on Sunday. Keep a close eye on CJ Uzomah, as Cincinnati will announce his official status at some point in the week.
