Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (back) placed on preseason PUP

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Bengals added tight end Jermaine Gresham to the active physically unable to perform list.

The Bengals said Gresham had a back injury. Gresham's injury appears to be unrelated to an issue from earlier this offseason that required him to have hernia surgery. That particular injury forced Gresham to miss all of the minicamp and organized team activity practices, even though he had participated in voluntary workouts earlier in the offseason calendar.

Fantasy Impact: 

Gresham's injury could open the door for second-year TE Tyler Eifert. He's expected to see more snaps as the Bengals run more two-TE sets, but perhaps he can win the starting job outright with Gresham on the shelf.
