Bengals injury roundup coming out of bye week

A week of much-needed rest for a Cincinnati team that needs all hands on deck Tyler Eifert’s 2017 season is over, but he’s far from the only injury that the Cincinnati Bengals are dealing with.

But what they did not count on was that it would be Tyler Kroft, and not Tyler Eifert, who would provide the impetus the Bengals needed to turn around their season. Eifert had only one reception for four yards in the...
