Tyler Eifert, Vontaze Burfict among Bengals not expected to play vs. Cowboys

Burfict is battling an ankle injury that’s kept him sidelined for much of the past week. The Bengals will once again have some key players missing preseason action. Ahead of tonight’s clash with the Cowboys, Cincinnati announced the following players were unlikely to play, while Tyler Eifert is also almost certainly out even though he wasn’t on the list of announced players: LB Vontaze Burfict CB Tony McRae WR Cody Core LB Vincent Rey CB Sojourn Shelton DT Josh Tupou DT Andrew Brown Look for Eifert next week in Buffalo with Kroft expected to start tonight— Geoff Hobson...

Marvin Lewis hopes Tyler Eifert doesn’t play more than 50 snaps a game

Marvin Lewis hopes Tyler Eifert doesn’t play more than 50 snaps a game

We may’ve been given a rough limit on how much Eifert is going to play this season. The durability of tight end Tyler Eifert has been under more scrutiny than the handling of Flint, Michigan’s water. Well, maybe not that much, but it’s been a pressing issue for five years now. Eifert has been dealing with numerous injuries for the vast majority of his NFL career, and 2018 has been no different so far. He entered training camp this year with a back issue and was initially placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list for the first few practices. To the surprise of most...

Bengals Bytes (8/8): Marvin Lewis won’t commit to Tyler Eifert’s status for Thursday’s game

Marvin Lewis won’t say whether Tyler Eifert will or won’t play in the team’s first preseason game. Camp report: Price embraces Thursday debut vs. Bears“I think he’s doing just fine,” said Trey Hopkins, getting the call again at right guard after making his first 12 NFL starts last year. “It was tough for me getting the new system coming in from the other offense learning new calls. We have a lot more detailed calls and I feel they were hard for me to learn. He came in very quickly and was kind of on it. My hats off to him just for that.” Game Day Info: Chicago Bears at...

Vontaze Burfict’s return and 2 other observations from Day 10 of Bengals training camp

#55 is back baby, while Cordy Glenn hit a rough patch. 10 minutes before the gates to the practice fields next to Paul Brown Stadium opened, Cincinnati happened and a 15-minute shower commenced. By the time I found a spot in the bleachers, there was nothing but sunshine. Gotta love Ohio weather. The flash storms didn’t stop the Bengals, who are now just one practice away from playing the Chicago Bears in PBS Thursday night. Here’s my three biggest bullet points from the 10th practice of training camp. Big (but not too big) man back on campus Seeing tight end Tyler Eifert return to the...

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert reveals why he decided to grow a mullet

Tyler Eifert drew inspiration from a coach from whom he never played. As training camp begins, there are many questions surrounding the Cincinnati Bengals. While Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert’s health has been a question he has tried to put to rest (unsuccessfully) all offseason, he’s posted workout videos on social media. Through that, Eifert also gave fans a preview of his new mullet.

Tyler Eifert’s return and 3 other observations from Day 5 of Bengals training camp

The offense is getting scarier with Tyler Eifert back in the fold along with other emerging weapons. The first Monday practice of Bengals training camp had a mundane feeling to it. After four consecutive afternoons grinding in the Midwestern summer heat, Monday’s session had a little less emphasis on full-team run-throughs. Coupled with a slight drizzle throughout the final half of the day, there was a slight personification of the Monday blues going on outside of Paul Brown Stadium. Still, there was plenty of contact when both sides of the ball went against each other on the line of...
