Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Has fifth-year option exercised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cincinnati Bengals exercised the fifth-year option of Tyler Eifert 's rookie contract Wednesday, Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports.

The presence of Jermaine Gresham held Eifert, the rookie, down in 2013, and a dislocated elbow sustained in Week 1 the very next season quelled any hopes of an outburst. With Gresham hitting the open market last offseason, though, Eifert finally had the opportunity to flourish. Despite missing three games down the stretch due to a stinger and a concussion, Eifert was economical with his 74 targets, hauling in 52 passes for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns. As long as he avoids the injury bug, he'll represent a hulking alternative to No. 1 wideout A.J. Green.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Works under new coordinator
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyler Eifert , who approaches the coming season healthy, will be working under a new offensive coordinator in Ken Zampese, who was previously the Cincinnati Bengals ' QB coach, NFL.com reports.

Under Zampese, who will replace current Cleveland head coach Hue Jackson, Eifert and top wideout A.J. Green will reprise their key roles the Bengals' offense, helmed by QB Andy Dalton, who is already throwing without restrictions after ending the 2015 season sidelined with a thumb injury. The duo of Eifert (13 TDs in 13 games in 2015) and Green (10 TDs) combined for 75 percent of the team's receiving scores last season and will continue to be vital red zone targets in Zampese's offense, which has cycled out wideouts Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu, while bringing in Brandon LaFell.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Has sprained ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyler Eifert has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Emerging from Sunday's Pro Bowl with a walking boot on his left foot, Eifert cleared an initial X-ray, and additional tests upon returning to Cincinnati revealed the nature of the injury. With a spell of rest, expect the tight end to participate in the entire offseason program.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Injures lower leg in Pro Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyler Eifert injured his lower left leg during Sunday's Pro Bowl, leaving Aloha Stadium in a walking boot, Geoff Hobson of the Cincinnati Bengals ' official site reports. "I don't really know what happened," Eifert said. "I jammed my heel. I'll be good."

After recording his first Pro Bowl catch in the fourth quarter, Eifert was targeted on the very next play by Jameis Winston but was unable to corral a potential 35-yard touchdown. Eifert exhibited an evident limp as he went to the sideline, where his foot was iced until he was transported to the locker room in the waning minutes in order to undergo an X-ray. The initial exam was returned negative, but he'll have additional tests performed once he returns to Cincinnati to determine the extent of the injury.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Tallies 58 yards receiving in Wild Card loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Eifert secured five of eight targets for 58 yards in Saturday's 18-16 Wild Card loss to the Steelers.

The third-year tight end was A.J. McCarron's second-most productive target on the night, and could have had an even bigger stat line had he not mishandled a first-quarter pass over the middle that would have netted at least 15 yards. The 25-year-old nevertheless enjoyed an outstanding season, delivering on the promise that led to his first-round selection in the 2013 draft. The Notre Dame product tallied a remarkable 13 touchdowns in 13 games during this past season, while setting new career highs in receptions, reception yardage and touchdown catches. Only heading into his fourth season in 2016, Eifert should be primed for his most productive campaign yet provided his health remains intact.
