Bengals running low on tight ends in OTAs

When injuries begin to concentrate at one position during the season, it’s a major concern.

When rosters are at 90 instead of 53, it’s less so, but the Bengals are still without the top of their tight end depth chart.

According to Geoff Hobson of the team’s official website, both Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert are being held out of OTAs.

Neither are expected to miss training camp time.

Eifert’s out with a shoulder injury, while Gresham’s is of the unspecified (read: We don’t have to tell you, so we won’t) variety.

“He’s just not out here because he’s not practicing. He’s doing what he has to do,” head coach Marvin Lewis said of Gresham.

They have three other tight ends on the roster, so it’s not an emergency at this point, as long as those injuries don’t linger.
