  • Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Ruled out for Week 3
    By RotoWire Staff

    Eifert (knee/back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Eifert was unable to practice at all this week, so it comes as little surprise that he will be sidelined Sunday. Tyler Kroft is next in line on the Bengals' depth chart, but C.J. Uzomah seems like the best bet among Bengals tight ends to make a fantasy impact in Eifert's absence.

  • Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Not spotted Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Eifert (knee/back) was not spotted at Friday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Eifert sat out the first two days of practice this week, and it looks like he will do the same Friday. His Week 3 status will be revealed at some point after Friday's session, but with him not getting in any work this week, his chances of playing Sunday against the Packers are not promising.

  • Eifert (knee/back) wasn't present for Thursday's practice, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Eifert's absence makes it quite unlikely that he'll be able to play Sunday against the Packers, unless he demonstrates dramatic improvement and fully practices in Friday's walkthrough. Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah will be in line for increased reps at tight end in Week 3 if Eifert is in fact sidelined, but neither is expected to see many targets in passing game.

  • Eifert (knee/back) won't practice Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Eifert logged 78 percent of the Bengals' offensive snaps in Thursday's 13-9 loss to the Texans, but he managed just three catches for 42 yards on four targets and came out of the contest with knee and back injuries. The latter issue is of particular interest, as Eifert was limited during the Bengals' offseason program while recovering from December surgery. With the team yet to comment on his injuries, Eifert's practice participation (or lack thereof) may provide the only real hint regarding his availability for Sunday's game in Green Bay. The Bengals will turn to Tyler Kroft and/or C.J. Uzomah (ankle) at tight end if Eifert can't go.

  • Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Uncertain for Week 3
    By RotoWire Staff

    Eifert is dealing with back and knee injuries, leaving his status uncertain for Week 3 against the Packers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Week 2 was a rough one for top tight ends, with Greg Olsen (foot), Rob Gronkowski (groin), Jordan Reed (chest) and Jimmy Graham (knee) suffering injuries of varying severity. Add Eifert to the list, though he'll at least have the benefit of extra time to recover after playing on Thursday Night Football in Week 2. He's off to a slow start with only four catches for 46 yards on five targets through two games, but the Cincinnati offense can't be this bad all season and likely will make more of an effort to get Eifert the ball. Should he end up missing time, Tyler Kroft likely would fill in as the starting tight end, though A.J. Green might be the larger beneficiary from a fantasy perspective, considering he and Eifert tend to compete for Andy Dalton's attention in the red zone. The location of Eifert's injuries is a major concern, as he had back surgery in December and then dealt with knee tendinitis during the preseason.
