Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Quiet preseason debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert secured his only target for four yards in Friday's 23-12 preseason win over the Bucs.

The oft-injured 26-year-old is striving to play all 16 games for the first time in his career, and he's apparently looked to be at full health in the early stages of training camp. Friday, Eifert saw action on the opening possession, making his one catch in Bucs territory. While his involvement was limited overall, he'll look to up his production and snaps in next Saturday's tilt against the Chiefs.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Playing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert will play in Friday's preseason contest versus the Buccaneers, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Coming off an injury-plagued 2016, Eifert was nonetheless given full clearance at the start of training camp, during which he's looked like the tight end of old. While he'll be hard-pressed to match his touchdown-per-game pace of two years ago, his performance Friday will shed light on where the soon-to-be 27-year-old stands, health-wise.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Cleared for start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert (back) has been fully cleared for the start of training camp, The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. reports.

Eifert was limited throughout the offseason program and even hinted he might not be ready for the start of training camp, but he apparently made significant progress in the six weeks since June minicamp ended. While he still has a sketchy injury history and will have plenty of competition for targets, Eifert's prowess in the red zone -- 18 touchdowns in 21 games the past two years -- makes him an appealing option whenever he takes the field. He has no real competition for snaps at tight end, and while Cincinnati's offseason additions mean there are more mouths to feed, the changes should also make it easier for Eifert to get open over the middle.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: On track for start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert (back) should be ready to participate when the Bengals begin training camp Friday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

It will be interesting to see if Eifert is able to participate without restrictions, however, as he was limited in OTAs during the offseason following surgery in December. In a Cincinnati offense with plenty of weapons for quarterback Andy Dalton, Eifert should be one of the more heavily targeted pass catchers in the red zone, where he's been targeted 27 times over his last 21 games dating back to the start of the 2015 season.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Limited during OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert (back) will be limited during the Bengals' OTAs, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Eifert's limited participation on the rehab field comes as no surprise, while his status for training camp later in the summer remains up in the air at this point. He racked up five touchdowns in just eight games last year, and has yet to play a full 16-game season due to health issues during his first four years in the league. There's no reason for the Bengals to rush their No. 1 tight end back onto the field following December surgery, so expect Tyler Kroft (knee) and C.J. Uzomah to see additional reps throughout the remainder of the team's OTAs.
