Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Eifert (ankle) on injured reserve Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The transaction was inevitable after Eifert underwent season-ending surgery Monday to address a broken right ankle. The injury is expected to sideline Eifert for 4-to-5 months, suggesting the impending free agent may not be back to full strength by the time teams begin OTAs. While Eifert is out, the Bengals are expected to proceed with C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft as their primary options at tight end.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Likely facing 4-to-5-month recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert is expected to require 4-to-5 months of recovery time after undergoing surgery Monday to repair a fractured right ankle, Fletcher Page of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Bengals haven't formally placed Eifert on injured reserve, but it's expected they'll do so by the end of the week, officially ending his season. The timeline associated with Eifert's injury -- which was similar to the one suffered by the Giants' Odell Beckham last October -- could result in the tight end facing some limitations during OTAs next spring, but the expectation is that Eifert will be back to full strength by the time training camp opens. While Eifert is sidelined for the remainder of 2018, the Bengals are expected to proceed with C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft as their primary options at tight end.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Injury could be season-ending
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert's third-quarter right ankle injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons appears to be a season-ending issue, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Replays of Eifert's gruesome injury leave little doubt that the hard-luck tight end will likely miss extended time. Injured reserve is a distinct possibility for Eifert, with Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah now slated to handle the Bengals' tight end duties in the coming weeks.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Held out of action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert was not in uniform for Saturday's 21-13 preseason win over the Cowboys.

Eifert traveled with the team and worked out with the team's medical staff, but he was ultimately included on the list of inactives for the team's second preseason contest. His exclusion from the lineup isn't all that surprising given his injury history, but he should play a part in next week's exhibition against the Bills as he looks to round into form before the regular season starts.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Avoiding setbacks so far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert (back) took part in Monday's padded practice, but he was limited to individual work Tuesday, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Eifert doesn't seem to have any limitations in terms of taking contact, but the Bengals have been careful to manage his reps since removing him from the PUP list July 30. While he'll likely be held out for Thursday's preseason opener against Chicago, the 27-year-old tight end seems to be on the right track for Week 1 of the regular season. With Tyler Kroft also on hand at tight end, the Bengals might consider limiting Eifert's snap counts to give him a better shot at staying healthy throughout the year.
