Tyler Eifert doesn't have any structural damage in his neck, but his status for this Sunday's game at Cleveland remains up in the air, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Prior to departing with a stinger in the second half Sunday, Eifert corralled his 12th touchdown of the season during a three-catch, 40-yard effort.
