Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Might miss time early on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert, who will undergo ankle surgery Wednesday, could potentially miss the first couple games of the upcoming NFL season, reports.

Such a scenario remains speculative at this stage, given initial estimates relayed by the Cincinnati Enquirer that "a three-month recovery is anticipated, which puts Eifert's return to the field sometime in August." On the plus side, Eifert's upcoming surgery has been referred to as a "minimal procedure," so it's a little too early to count out the tight end for the Bengals' regular season opener on Sept. 11 against the Jets.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Set to have ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Eifert will soon have a minor procedure on his ankle, with a three-month recovery anticipated, the Cincinnati Inquirer reports.

Although the surgery isn't considered overly serious, Eifert will presumably miss most or all of training camp, with his Week 1 status now in serious question. He suffered the injury at the Pro Bowl on Jan. 31, but the Bengals initially believed it would heal with rest. Tyler Kroft is the leading candidate to take Eifert's first-team snaps during camp, with Ryan Hewitt and C.J. Uzomah possibly also in the mix. Coming off a 2015 receiving line of 52-615-13 in 13 games, Eifert may still be able to improve on last season's total of 72 targets, as the Bengals lost both Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones during the offseason. If Eifert isn't ready by Week 1, the Cincinnati receiving corps will look quite thin behind A.J. Green, which could be good news for Brandon LaFell and/or rookie Tyler Boyd.

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 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, 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.

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.
