Bengals TE Tyler Eifert suffered a right ankle fracture in Sunday's win at Atlanta, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The injury will require surgery and cost Eifert the rest of the season. He hasn't played more than 13 games in a season since his 2013 rookie campaign. Eifert played just 10 total games over the past 2 years before going down in Week 4 of 2018.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert will undergo season-ending back surgery on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It'll be Eifert's 2nd back surgery in the past 10 months.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was held out of Sunday's preseason game with knee tendinitis, HC Marvin Lewis said. Lewis downplayed the situation, but we don't consider anything minor when it comes to Eifert. He's missed 27 games through 4 NFL seasons with a variety of injuries. None have been to his knee, which we guess is a good thing. We'll see when Eifert is able to get back on the field and whether the issue lingers.
