Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert did not play again Saturday in the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys, but he is likely to suit up for the all-important third preseason tilt against the Buffalo Bills next Sunday. The brittle tight end is a tremendous red-zone threat when he is able to stay on the field, posting career highs with 52 grabs, 615 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2015. Unfortunately, he has been beset by injuries, playing a total of just 10 games over the past two seasons. You should be able to get Eifert in the middle rounds on draft day, and he can be a bona fide TE1 when 100 percent healthy. He has double-digit TD ability if he can stay on the field, just have a backup plan at the ready.
Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis doesn't expect tight end Tyler Eifert to be on the field for too many snaps this year. When asked about the challenges of having Eifert on a snap count this year, Lewis said, "Well I hope he never gets 50." Eifert has proven he can be a touchdown beast when he's healthy, but he's played in just 10 games the last two years and has never made it through a full season. The lack of faith from his head coach isn't a good sign, either. Eifert is a boom-or-bust TE2 pick late in drafts.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) will be on a snap count this season. Head coach Marvin Lewis went as far as to say that he hopes Eifert doesn't reach 50 snaps in a game this year.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was a full participant in practice Friday, Aug. 3.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (back) made his training camp debut on Monday after coming off the PUP list. Though it is believed that Eifert will be brought back into the mix slowly, he didn't appear to be limited physically, catching a touchdown as a member of the second-team offense. The former Pro Bowl selection has yet to play a full season in his NFL career and has been plagued by a back issue that has forced multiple surgeries throughout the years. However, when healthy, he can rival the production of some of the league's top tight ends.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) passed his physical Monday, July 30, and has been activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said that, despite going on the Physically Unable to Perform list, he suffered no setback and is 'feeling good.' When asked if he believes he'll play in the team's Week 1 game, he responded, 'Yeah, 100 percent.'
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (back), who is on the Physically Unable to Perform list to start training camp, said he's had no setback with his back and is feeling great. "There is no setback," Eifert said to The Enquirer. "I'm feeling good. This is just the route we chose to take." He also thinks he'll be ready to play in Week 1 and said he's 100 percent. We find it hard to believe that the perennially injured tight end is 100 percent, as he's played in only 24 of 64 regular season games in the last four seasons. It'd be great news if Eifert played a full season, but that feels like wishful thinking at this point. He's a red-zone beast when healthy, but his injury history makes him a late-round flier as a TE2, unfortunately.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (back) is expected to begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to a source. Eifert tweaked his back in the spring but has been feeling good. Nobody should be shocked. In five seasons in the NFL, he's never played a full season and has played in just 10 games the last two years due to injuries. Eifert had 13 touchdowns in 13 games in 2015, showing what kind of touchdown upside he has when on the field, but he just hasn't been able to stay healthy. Most fantasy owners want nothing to do with him anymore.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert's (back) status remains up in the air for the start of training camp this week. "Hopefully Tyler Eifert can come back and be a factor for us," director of player personnel Duke Tobin said. "I can't predict the future on that one, but I can testify to the fact that he made a difference when he was up and running for us. We know what he can do if he can get back to that level. I know his full intent is to get back to that level. We'll see if he can." Eifert has missed 22 of his 32 games with injuries, so he's obviously off the fantasy radar right now. But when he's been healthy, he's been a touchdown machine. He's worth a gamble as a late-round flier in deeper leagues to see if he can stay healthy and score touchdowns again, but you shouldn't be holding your breath.
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.

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.

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.
