  • Uzomah had just two catches for 35 yards in Sunday's win over the Vikings, but one of those was on fourth down in overtime, a grab that put the Bengals in position to kick a game-winning field goal. Uzomah had just two targets on 51 snaps, but teammate Drew Sample had zero targets on 35 offensive snaps. With three strong wide receivers at Joe Burrow's disposal and Joe Mixon also involved in the passing game, there's little room for the tight ends to get much action.

  • Uzomah is listed ahead of Drew Sample at tight end on the Bengals' depth chart. Uzomah hasn't had any setbacks in camp as he has been recovering from his torn Achilles' tendon. He's more of a pass catcher than Sample, though his target share still won't likely be all that high. Moreover, the Bengals run an "11" formation more often than most teams, meaning there won't be too many chances for both Uzomah and Sample to see the field at the same time.

  • Uzomah (Achilles) said during a recent appearance on the "London Is Blue Podcast" that he's been medically cleared, Adi Joseph of CBS Sports reports. Uzomah apparently made a quick recovery from the Achilles tear he suffered Week 2, declaring himself healthy just seven months later. The Bengals may still opt to ease him into practices this spring and summer, but the tight end should be ready to challenge Drew Sample for playing time. Of course, the Bengals could add a rookie to their tight end mix during the 2021 NFL Draft, potentially giving Sample and Uzomah some tougher competition.

  • Uzomah (Achilles) posted a video Wednesday on his personal Twitter account featuring him running on a treadmill. Uzomah wasn't sporting a brace while he ran on the treadmill, an encouraging sign in his recovery from the season-ending Achilles surgery he required in late September. The tight end likely will remain limited or sidelined entirely for OTAs in the spring, but he could have a shot at gaining full clearance for the start of training camp. He'll be entering the final season of a three-year, $18 million deal in 2021, but even if healthy Uzomah may not be assured a starting role. Second-year player Drew Sample showed some promise as a blocker and pass catcher (40 receptions for 349 yards and a touchdown) after Uzomah went down with the injury, and the Bengals still could bring in additional competition at the position through the draft or free agency this offseason.

  • Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Wednesday that Uzomah underwent surgery to address his season-ending Achilles injury, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. Uzomah tore his right Achilles' tendon in the Week 2 loss to the Browns, spoiling what had been a solid outing up to that point (four catches for 42 yards and a touchdown). With Uzomah now turning his focus to rehabbing his leg and getting healthy for 2020, the Bengals will rely on Drew Sample to step in as their new starting tight end. Cethan Carter and Mason Schreck will handle depth roles behind Sample.
