Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) needs to practice fully before playing

Tuesday, October 4, 2016, 10:02am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Bengals will eventually get TE Tyler Eifert back and he’ll likely take the load off WR A.J. Green’s shoulders. But while Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys has seemed like a possibility, it won’t be definite until Eifert fully practices, something he has not yet done.

Fantasy Impact:

The story was mostly about the Bengals struggle in the red zone this season. Of course, Eifert was a huge part of the team's success last year. Eifert scored 11 red zone TDs in 2015 so it's clear the Bengals miss his presence on the field. Eifert was a possibility to play on a short week in Week 4, but was eventually ruled out, so the hope is he can get on the practice field this week and play in Week 5. If he does, he could still be on some sort of pitch count, but it would see likely he'd be on the field in the red zone.

Bengals WR A.J. Green's knee injury doesn't appear serious

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The good news for the Bengals is that the injury to wide receiver A.J. Green (knee) was not as severe. Green came up limping in the first quarter.

“I think I just came down on it, banged knees, but I’m fine. It sucks because I wanted to play a little bit longer,” Green told NBC’s Michelle Tafoya at halftime of last night’s broadcast.

Fantasy Impact:

We'll stay with this story as we get more information, but it appears the Bengals avoided a disaster, especially with TE Tyler Eifert currently injured. Don't expect to see Green in the final preseason game, but based on this he should be ready to go Week 1.

Bengals Tyler Boyd leader for WR2 spot

Tuesday, August 23, 2016, 1:14pm

The Bengals lined up rookie wide receiver Tyler Boyd in a variety of ways during practice and while he has yet to catch an NFL regular-season pass the Bengals can celebrate Boyd’s ascension into the derby to start opposite A.J. Green in New Jersey on Sept. 11.

“A lot of guys are in that category,” said wide receivers coach James Urban as the staff continues to respond to the off-season departures of the nearly combined 1,000 yards and 100 catches accumulated by Sanu and Marvin Jones last season.

But with seven-year veteran Brandon LaFell returning to practice this week with a damaged ligament in his hand after a 10-day absence, Boyd is the unquestioned leader in the clubhouse as they get set to gauge LaFell in Sunday’s dress rehearsal in Jacksonville.

“We have to see how he transitions through,” said offensive coordinator Ken Zampese.

Fantasy Impact:

Also making a push is one of the best stories of the year in James Wright. Wright, the 2014 seventh-rounder from LSU, is coming back from a 21-month layoff as he tries to rebound from the most dangerous of procedures, a micro fracture knee surgery.

The Bengals reported to Paul Brown Stadium Thursday and as five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green began his sixth training camp without offseason workout partner Calvin Johnson in the league, he says he’s one of a group of about five vying to replace Johnson as the NFL’s best wide receiver.

“I’m in there,” said Green, who also counts Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., and DeAndre Hopkins in that mix.

Green says he’s not surprised Johnson retired after just nine seasons in the league at age 30. After all, he told Green a couple of offseasons ago that he only had about two or three years left in him.

And there are other concerns. Green and wife Miranda are expecting their first child Sept. 30, a son named Easton Ace Green.

Fantasy Impact:

Green, who turns 28 Sunday, said he’d like to play anywhere between 11-15 seasons if he’s still performing at a top level, the story said.

Andy Dalton has no restrictions with thumb

Monday, April 4, 2016, 9:19pm

Bengals.com - [Full Article]

Andy Dalton is back to zipping the ball. He’s got no restrictions with his throwing thumb; he’s got one visit under his belt to passing specialist Dr. Tom House last month, and after watching two of his most established targets leave via free agency he got one back with a Super Bowl ring and knows Pro Bowlers A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert are already here.

“It would be tougher if it was my first or second year, but this is year six,” Dalton says Monday from Dallas of his revamped receiving corps. “It’s easier for me now than early on in my career. That is going to be fun. We’ve got these guys from the start; we’ve got to get them exactly where we want them to be.

The two guys who lockered next to him and meant so much to the passing game won’t be here two weeks from Monday when the Bengals gather for offseason workouts. Wide receiver Marvin Jones turned down at least the same $40 million to go to Detroit and Mohamed Sanu got No. 2 money in Atlanta when a No. 4 role loomed in Cincinnati.

Fantasy Impact:

This past season Jones and Sanu represented 28 percent of Dalton’s yards and 16 percent of his touchdowns, the story said. In the wake of their losses the Bengals signed Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell who will move into the number-two slot opposite of Green.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion, out) has been ruled out for Week 15. Eifert’s absence means that A.J. Green and Marvin Jones are a bit more attractive, though the loss of Andy Dalton doesn’t help.

Friday, December 11, 2015, 6:22pm

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 14. He’s the #2 TE in the league in PPG, so he’s pretty much a must-start if he’s healthy. His return is a downgrade for A.J. Green and Marvin Jones, but Andy Dalton gets a small bump given Eifert’s effectiveness in the red zone.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Eifert says he is “on track to play Sunday” and was a “full go” on Thursday. He’s the #2 TE in the league in PPG, so he’s pretty much a must-start if he’s healthy. His return is a downgrade for A.J. Green and Marvin Jones, but Andy Dalton gets a small bump given Eifert’s effectiveness in the red zone.
