Free agent tight end Bo Scaife left the Titans to sign a one-year contract with the Bengals this month. That one year may be spent on injured reserve.
Bengals.com reports that there’s a fear that Scaife suffered a season-ending shoulder injury Thursday.
If Scaife can’t go, the Bengals will need tight end Chase Coffman, a 2009 third-round pick, to step up. Coffman has been limited by injuries to just six games in two seasons. Jermaine Gresham remains the Bengals’ starting tight end.
Scaife has 251 receptions for 2,383 yards and 12 touchdowns in six NFL seasons, all with the Titans. Last year he started 13 games for Tennessee.
