Jake Fisher: Short experiment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher was let go Monday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills brought in the former offensive lineman to give him a shot at making the team as a tight end, but with veteran Lee Smith added Monday, there was no longer room to let the experiment play out. Fisher is still just 26, so there's a decent chance someone else picks him up for either job.

Bills' Jake Fisher: Shedding weight rapidly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher said he is down to 268 pounds and is aiming for the low 260s as he transitions to tight end, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.

With Fisher making the switch from tackle to tight end, a position he said he is much more passionate about playing, he has had to go from over 300 pounds to 260. He has made remarkable progress the last few months and appears to be close to his goal weight a couple months out of training camp.

Jake Fisher: Signing with Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is signing a one-year contract with the Bills, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Fisher is transitioning to tight end this offseason after making 12 starts at offensive tackle in four years with the Bengals. He had impressive marks for speed and agility at the 2015 combine, including a 5.01 40-yard dash and 7.25 three-cone drill at 6-foot-6, 306 pounds. Fisher is already down to 285 pounds and presumably will lose more weight before he competes for a roster spot during training camp. He'll presumably serve as a blocking specialist rather than a receiving threat, though he might eventually develop into the latter if the position change sticks.

Jake Fisher: Working out for Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is working out for the Redskins on Thursday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Washington is presumably looking to see where Fisher is at in his transition from offensive tackle to tight end. Down to 285 pounds, the 2015 second-rounder is reportedly and understandably working on improving his routes and hands. It's probably safe to say he's at a good place from a blocking standpoint.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Running routes as tight end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (back) has been running routes with current NFL quarterbacks in California this offseason in an effort to transition to the tight end position, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A second-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Fisher has largely been a disappointment at tackle as injuries have ultimately ended two of his last three seasons early. The last thing the Bengals need is yet another injury-prone tight end, but Fisher could at the very least make for an intriguing blocking-first option given his immense athleticism (5.01 40-yard dash and 11.58 agility score at 306 pounds). Evidently down to 285 pounds, the Bengals might as well consider the prospect of moving their tackle to tight end given Tyler Eifert (ankle), Tyler Kroft (foot) and C.J. Uzomah are all unrestricted free agents entering the 2019 offseason. It's worth pointing out Fisher is also an unrestricted free agent, but the 25-year-old would likely be less expensive than any of the trio mentioned above given the potential positional change and less-than-stellar resume to date.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (back) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Fisher suffered a back injury during a Week 12 loss to the Browns, the severity of which was evidently enough to send him to injured reserve. The 2015 second-round pick will remain on IR for the rest of the regular season, and he'll set his sights on recovering in time for a 2019 return. Veteran offensive lineman Andre Smith takes Fisher's place on the 53-man roster.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Ruled out with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns due to a back injury, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Fisher suffered an ankle injury during the third quarter of Sunday's contest, and will not return to the field. With the 2015 second-round pick sidelined, Christian Westerman and Trey Hopkins could be in line for increased rotational snaps.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Battle for starting jobs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Both the starting right guard and right tackle jobs are up for grabs during training camp, though Fisher presumably is the leading candidate to start at right tackle, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Saturday was the first day of full pads for the Bengals' training camp. The Bengals' offensive line was a major liability last season, and they picked up a new left tackle in Cordy Glenn and a new center in rookie Billy Price, but less has been said about the right side of the line, which wasn't all that great either.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Cleared for offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (chest) was cleared for offseason workouts Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Fisher ended the 2017 season on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list after receiving November treatment for Atrial fibrillation, a condition characterized by a rapid, irregular heartbeat. However, he's now back in the gym and appears ready to begin preparations for the 2018 campaign.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Getting treated for irregular heartbeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Thursday that Fisher was placed on the season-ending Reserve/Non-Football Illness list due to an irregular heartbeat, SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Fisher is slated to undergo a procedure this week to address the issue and is expected to make a full recovery well in advance of the 2018 season. To address the void at offensive tackle left by Fisher's absence, the Bengals signed veteran Eric Winston on Wednesday.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Fisher (illness) on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list Wednesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Fisher was hospitalized Sunday with the undisclosed illness, but Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis downplayed the severity of the offensive tackle's ailment when he met with the media Monday. Evidently, Fisher's health was more of a concern than Lewis let on, so the team opted to deactivate him and sign veteran free-agent tackle Eric Winston, who had previously appeared in 33 games for Cincinnati over parts of the last three seasons.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Will not return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (illness) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, and he's headed to the hospital, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Since Joe Thomas (elbow) is out for the year, the Bengals are now without both their starting tackles. Andre Smith will continue to slot in at right tackle, but it's unclear if Fisher's illness will affect his long-term availability.

Bengals' Jake Fisher: Feeling ill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is nursing an illness during Sunday's game against the Jaguars and is questionable to return, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

While Fisher is on the sidelines, expect Andre Smith to slot in at right tackle.
