Tyler Eifert out again this week

It looked like Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert was closing in on a return to action after offseason ankle surgery a couple of weeks ago, but a back injury has extended his absence from the lineup.

That absence will continue when the Bengals travel to New England this weekend. Eifert has been ruled out of the game after another week went by without his presence on the practice field.

It’s a disappointing and frustrating trend for the Bengals, who have clearly missed Eifert’s presence as a red zone target this season. Eifert scored 13 receiving touchdowns last season, but Cincinnati has only had five among all receivers this season and that total includes a couple of Brandon LaFell scores when the Bengals were down 28-0 in the fourth quarter last weekend.

Everyone else on the Bengals was a full participant in Friday’s practice, including running back Jeremy Hill. Hill hurt his chest last Sunday, but has been able to practice all week.

    Yay, Probowl! Thanks for another meaningless injury. I’m sure the 16 people who watched it felt the sacrifice was well worth it.

    Double Green, watch Bernard on 3rds (or early down draws) and stop Hill.

    Ball game.

    Might be time for him to consider retirement. Definitely not good news for this week – Pats will likely win straight up, as in no cheating required.

    Roger “The Almighty” Goodell and the buffoons at NFL HQ have tainted every team’s legacy. They’ve done more lying and cheating in the last few years than everyone else, have repeatedly failed to deliver the promised “transparency” creating an atmosphere of distrust with the product and have, thereby, given traction to any/all conspiracy theories. That’s quite a legacy these buffoons have built.
