Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis does not know if tight end Tyler Eifert (back) will be ready for minicamp. Eifert had offseason back surgery and had reported that he was on schedule. However, he has missed the first few days of minicamp with back pain. There's still plenty of time for him to recover before the season begins, but this is not an encouraging development for the tight end. Eifert is a low-end TE1 if healthy.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's (back) status for training camp is unclear at this point, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert was not dressed and did not participate at training camp on Tuesday. Eifert was in the building and had said that the only reason he'd be out is for medical reasons. "As time goes on when we start to play football then we will have an idea of where he is," head coach Marvin Lewis said after camp. Eifert only played in two games last year, but had 18 combined touchdowns from 2015-2016. He's a low end TE1, provided he's healthy.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is moving at about half speed following offseason back surgery. He insists there have been no setbacks in his recovery, saying that he is 'on schedule'. Eifert only played in two games last year but has 18 combined touchdowns from 2015-2016. He is a low-end TE1 assuming he is healthy heading into 2018.

Free-agent TE Tyler Eifert (Bengals) is re-signing to a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The Cincinnati Bengals reached an agreement to keep tight end Tyler Eifert on a one-year deal. Eifert missed almost the entire 2017 season, but was still regarded as the top tight end remaining in free agency. Assuming he is fully healthy going into 2018, Eifert will be a TE1 in all fantasy formats.
Free-agent tight end Tyler Eifert (back) says he is healthy and ready to head into NFL free agency. Eifert, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, had season-ending surgery on his back in Week 2 last year. He has now missed 41 out of 80 potential NFL games in his five NFL seasons. Eifert's health will be a big factor in determining where he ends up this offseason. The Bengals have an interest in re-signing him, but there may be other offers out there. Regardless, his fantasy value is tied to his health. If Eifert is healthy and atop the depth chart heading into 2018, he should be one of the top tight ends off the board in fantasy drafts, albeit at a huge risk.
Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert recently told the Cincinnati Enquirer's Jim Owczarski that 'everything is fixed' in regards to the numerous injuries he has suffered over his NFL career - including the back injury that limited him to two games in 2017.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (back) has been cleared for OTAs, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Eifert landed on injured reserve after just two games because of a back injury which required micro disc surgery, and he underwent another operation to remove a cyst from his knee. The injuries are just the latest in a long list which has limited the tight end to 39 games over five seasons and just 10 the last two years. Eifert is undeniably talented and an elite red-zone weapon when healthy, but his struggle to stay on the field will likely prevent him from getting any long-term guarantees in free agency. A one-year, prove-it deal might end up being his best option.
Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert (back) has been cleared by doctors and is ready for organized team activities.

Contrary to a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals team president Mike Brown wants impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert to return in 2018, although Brown admits any deal he offers Eifert will take into account the fact 'he's literally played less than half the time' due to all of the injuries he has suffered throughout his pro career.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer gives Eifert a 10 percent chance of re-signing with the Bengals.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is an impending free agent and the Cincinnati Enquirer puts the chances the Bengals re-sign Eifert at "10 percent." Eifert has said all options are on the table, admitting his lengthy injury history will likely cloud some things. He is recovering from a second back surgery in two years and also needed a recent knee scope. Eifert has missed 41-of-80 games in five seasons but was dominant in 2015 when healthy, proving to be a huge red-zone weapon. He is still just 27, but the body is breaking down. Eifert's free-agent case will be interesting to follow. He may have to take a one-year deal.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert could return to the team, as Cincinnati has not ruled out re-signing the free agent. Eifert had multiple back surgeries and appeared in just two games last season. The Bengals got a third-year leap from Tyler Kroft in his absence, but run a lot of dual tight end sets. Eifert's best chance at reestablishing his value may be returning to the Bengals on a prove-it deal.
