Bengals' John Ross: Fails to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross wasn't present for Thursday's practice due to a knee injury, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Ross was listed as a limited participant for Wednesday's practice due to an illness, but there wasn't any mention of the ailment in Thursday's injury report. Instead, it was a knee issue -- most likely related to the left knee sprain that delayed his NFL debut until Week 2 -- that confined Ross to the sideline a day later. The Bengals haven't provided any indication that Ross suffered a setback with the knee or was simply given a maintenance day to manage any lingering soreness, so his activity during the team's final practice of the week Friday bears watching. In the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Texans, Ross gained 12 yards on a carry before coughing up the football, resulting in coach Marvin Lewis turning to Alex Erickson for more snaps than usual at wideout.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Entirely absent at Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert (knee/back) was entirely absent from Thursday's practice, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

This makes Eifert extremely unlikely to play Sunday, unless he has dramatic improvement and fully practices in Friday's walk-through.

Bengals' John Ross: Limited due to illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (illness) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Coming off a disappointing debut in which he fumbled his only touch (a 12-yard carry), Ross should have plenty of time to get back to full health before Sunday's game in Green Bay. He only played five of 64 offensive snaps in Thursday's 13-9 loss to Houston, unable to take advantage of the Bengals' decision to make Tyler Boyd a healthy scratch. The team instead turned to Alex Erickson as the No. 3 receiver behind A.J. Green and Brandon LaFell. It's no secret the Bengals want Ross to seize that role, but his continued struggles to stay on the practice field are delaying the seemingly inevitable.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert (knee/back) isn't practicing Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Eifert logged 78 percent of the offensive snaps in Thursday's 13-9 loss to the Texans, but he managed just three catches for 42 yards on four targets and came out of the contest with knee and back injuries. The latter is of particular interest, as he was limited during the Bengals' offseason program while recovering from December surgery. With the team yet to comment on his injuries, Eifert's practice participation (or lack thereof) may provide the only real hint regarding his availability for Sunday's game in Green Bay. The Bengals will turn to Tyler Kroft and/or C.J. Uzomah (ankle) at tight end if Eifert can't go.

Bengals' John Ross: Fumbles in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross recorded a 12-yard run in Thursday's 13-9 loss to the Texans. He fumbled on the play.

After Ross' fumble late in the first quarter he didn't get another opportunity. Overall, he was on the field for just five of Cincinnati's 64 offensive snaps. Losing the ball on his first career touch was not a great way to endear himself to his team, but it's still surprising that the Bengals didn't look to their first-round pick's 4.2-speed given their issues scoring. Look for Cincinnati to try to better utilize the speedster moving forward, though his usage will have to increase significantly before he becomes a fantasy factor.
