Bengals TE Eifert leaves Pro Bowl in walking boot


The Pro Bowl was supposed to be harmless and something close to fun, but Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert apparently suffered an injury.

Per Geoff Hobson of, Eifert left Aloha Stadium in a walking boot. ESPN cameras had caught trainers talking to Eifert on the sideline and putting a protective wrap on his foot.

Hobson tweeted that Eifert said he jammed his heel and will need a scan to make sure nothing is broken.

Eifert caught one pass for 11 yards in his first Pro Bowl, which wasn’t much of a game. He caught 52 passes for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2015, a year after he was held to one game by an elbow injury.
