Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert will miss this week’s game with a concussion. The hit that caused that concussion has drawn discipline from the league office.
The NFL has fined Steelers safety Mike Mitchell $23,152 for hitting Eifert in the head while Eifert was in a defenseless posture.
That’s a hefty fine, but it’s little solace to Eifert or the Bengals. Eifert missed most of that game and is now set to miss at least another game.
So while that hit was costly for Mitchell, it was costlier for Eifert and the Bengals.
