Eifert sat out some of OTAs, but he says the plan is for him to be full speed when camp opens after having back surgery

Summary

Back injuries have derailed Eifert's last two seasons. Despite him being one of the most effective red zone players in the NFL, the team showed with his contract that they are nervous about his ability to stay healthy. Playing on a one-year deal with maximum earnings of $8 million, Eifert is at a crossroads in his career. If healthy, he's a double-digit touchdowns season waiting to happen. But back issues tend to persist, making that "if" a significant qualifier. (May 6)

Bengals | Tyler Eifert could miss camp (Wed Jun 13, 04:55 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's (back) status for training camp is unclear at this point, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Our View: Lewis was non-committal when asked about Eifert's availability for training camp...and for good reason. If it's not one thing, it's another for Eifert in recent years. He's only played 10 games over the last two seasons and cannot be relied on. Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah will get more work while Eifert is out.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert misses first day of minicamp (Wed Jun 13, 02:42 AM) - Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) did not participate in the team's minicamp Tuesday, June 12, despite being at the facility earlier in the day.

Our View: Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis couldn't answer whether or not Eifert would be ready for the start of training camp. Eifert is great when healthy, but he's rarely healthy and has only played in 10 games over the last two seasons. Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah will get more work while Eifert is out.
