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 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.
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.
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' OL was a major liability last season, and they picked up a new LT 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.
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.
