In such a short week prepping for the Dolphins Thursday night, the Bengals are limited to a couple of walk-throughs instead of all-out practices, so it’s tough to get a gauge on where they stand with injuries.

What we do know is that head coach Marvin Lewis said after Tuesday’s walk-through that Pro Bowl tight end Tyler Eifert (ankle) is a game-time decision.

Fantasy Impact:

Eifert would be a risky fantasy play, because we do know HC Marvin Lewis said he will limit Eifert's snaps if he does play. That should at least mean he would see time in the red zone. Perhaps a wait-and-see approach is the best one, knowing Eifert is getting closer.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert, who has not played yet this season because of an ankle injury, is not expected to play in Thursday night's game against the Miami Dolphins, a team source told ESPN's Bob Holtzman.

Eifert returned to practice last week and was listed as limited in Monday's workout. He has hinted on multiple occasions that he could return as early as Thursday, but the source told Holtzman that a Week 5 return is possible for Eifert.

Fantasy Impact:

Eifert has not completed a full practice yet this season and has not participated in any 11-on-11 drills during his limited work. He had offseason surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left ankle and missed all of training camp and the preseason. Coach Marvin Lewis said Tuesday that when Eifert does come back, he'll be limited to a small number of snaps to ease him back into shape. Sounds like we're at least a few weeks away from Eifert being a full-go in a game.

Lewis: TE Tyler Eifert close to return

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis says TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is close to return.

Fantasy Impact:

It may be tough for Eifert to suit up on a short week for the Bengals in Week 4 as they take on the Dolphins Thursday night. Even if Eifert does play Thursday, he'll likely be on some kind of pitch count, perhaps appearing only in the red zone which obviously still gives him some fantasy value, although limited.
