Eifert’s string of injuries continued when he hurt his ankle in the Pro Bowl, requiring surgery that will force him to miss some games early this season. When he returns, the Bengals will get one of the most versatile tight ends in the game who happened to lead his position with 13 touchdowns in 2015. Eifert possesses that great spatial awareness necessary to be a real threat in the red zone, and he should be a force upon his return.
Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert will not play again this season
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert will not play again this season, coach Marvin Lewis said on Friday. Eifert was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return after suffering an elbow injury in a season-opening victory over the Baltimore Ravens. The designation made him eligible to play against the Cleveland Browns against Nov. 6.
