Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Friday that it's a possibility tight end Tyler Eifert will miss the rest of the season due to the dislocated elbow he suffered in the first game of the season.
"We're continuing to get Tyler healthy," said Lewis. "I can't give you an update until he gets close to being healthy. He's on the mend; he's healing doing things and if he gets back and healthy and he's going to be able to contribute and not risk further injury, then he'll be back and out there. We're obviously not going to risk Tyler's future for any part of this season right now until he's completely 100 percent healthy to be able to do his job."
When asked if that might mean Eifert could miss the entire season, Lewis said, "right."
We were expecting Eifert back as soon as Week 11, but it doesn't sound like he's anywhere close to being healthy enough to play. He is droppable in all but the deepest redraft formats.
