Kroft (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Kroft hasn't shown much sign of progress in his recovery from a fractured right foot and looks like a long shot for Sunday's game against the Ravens. If Kroft is sidelined for a fifth consecutive contest, C.J. Uzomah's standing as the Bengals' clear No. 1 tight end would remain unchallenged.
Kroft (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. With Kroft still out and Tyler Eifert (ankle) on IR, C.J. Uzomah (clavicle) will continue to head the Bengals' tight end corps Week 10 and possibly beyond if Kroft's foot issue persists.
Kroft (foot) is still wearing a protective boot, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. Kroft is recovering from a fractured right foot, and while the Bengals are optimistic he can return before the end of the season, it's safe to assume he won't be ready for Week 10 against the Saints. C.J. Uzomah figures to dominate snaps and targets at tight end.
Kroft is still donning a protective boot on his fractured right foot and may not be close to returning to game action, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. Coach Marvin Lewis said last week that he expects Kroft to play again at some point this season, but there does seem to be real chance the tight end doesn't make it back. He's recovering from an injury that may ultimately require surgery, leaving C.J. Uzomah to handle a three-down role in the meantime. Kroft can safely be ruled out for at least the Bengals' Week 8 game against Tampa Bay.
Coach Marvin Lewis said Kroft (foot) likely will return to the team at some point this year, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. It's still not clear if Kroft will go under the knife, but shutting him down for the season has been ruled out for the time being. Kroft would've been the second Bengals tight end to hit injured reserve, joining Tyler Eifert (ankle). Still, Kroft won't play Week 7 against the Chiefs and is likely still facing a multi-week absence. In the meantime, C.J. Uzomah will continue to be the No. 1 tight end, with Mason Schreck and Matthew Lengel on hand for any lingering snaps.
