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: Suffers broken ankle, out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert suffered a broken right ankle in Sunday's 37-36 win over the Falcons and will require season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After missing significant chunks of the 2016 and 2017 seasons due to back problems, it appears Eifert's 2018 campaign will end after just four games due to the gruesome injury. He'll likely be placed on injured reserve within the next few days, with the tight end finishing the season with 15 receptions for 179 yards and a touchdown. His absence sets the stage for Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah to handle the Bengals' tight-end duties for the rest of the season, though it's possible the team will add another number to the position via trade or through a signing. Eifert, meanwhile, will become a free agent during the upcoming offseason and could face a cool market with injuries limiting him to just 14 regular-season outings over the past three years.

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.
