Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Opts for season-ending surgery
Eifert (back) will undergo season-ending back surgery Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
After meeting with doctors Wednesday to determine his best course of action to address the back issue that's plagued him since mid-September, Eifert opted for surgery rather than the rest and rehab method. The procedure will sideline Eifert for 4-to-6 months, potentially spelling an end to his time in Cincinnati, as he's set to become a free agent after the season. The absence of Eifert -- who missed 41 out of a possible 80 regular-season games as a member of the Bengals -- will leave the starting role at tight end available for Tyler Kroft the rest of the way. Over the last three weeks while Eifert has sat out, Kroft has hauled in 13 of 16 targets for 134 yards and two touchdowns.
