John Ross, last seen when he fumbled his first NFL touch back on Sept. 14, returned to practice Monday as the Bengals began preparations for Sunday’s game (4:25 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) in Pittsburgh and it doesn’t sound like he’ll be ready for the Steelers.

But this is what he does know after he practiced in limited fashion for the first time in more than a month:

He feels good, he’s satisfied there’s nothing significantly wrong with the knee he injured in the Aug. 31 pre-season finale, and he’s been told it’s not related to the ACL he tore in the same knee during college.

Nick O'Leary next man up for Bills at TE

ESPN - [Full Article]

Nick O'Leary is the next man up at tight end for the Bills after starter and team-leading receiver Charles Clay suffered torn meniscus and sprained MCL in his left knee during the Bills' loss Oct. 8 to the Bengals, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Clay could miss six weeks, according to Schefter.

Fantasy Impact:

The story was mostly about O'Leary being a favorite Jameis Winton target at Florida State, as the Bills and Bucs face one another in Week 7. But when Clay went down, O'Leary was an instant factor in the Week 5 game, catching five balls for 54. For those in need of a TE, O'Leary could prove to be a key target for the Bills in their banged up passing game.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert scheduled to undergo back surgery Thursday and is expected to be out 4-6 months, per source. Free agent in winter.

Related players: Tyler Kroft

Fantasy Impact:

It's another lost season for Eifert. Of 80 possible games through five season, Eifert has played in just 39 games. Tyler Kroft will continue to start in his place.

Bengals WR John Ross (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 5.

Friday, October 6, 2017, 6:42pm

Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) took full practice reps again Friday. LaFell should be producing with John Ross and Tyler Eifert out, but he’s seen just five total targets in the last two games.

Friday, October 6, 2017, 6:42pm

Packers WR Davante Adams (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 5. Adams still has to clear his concussion protocol, so we should know more by the close of business on Saturday. If he’s out, Geronimo Allison looks like a very Sneaky Start against a shaky Dallas secondary. Allison caught 6 passes for 122 yards with Randall Cobb sidelined against the Bengals.

Friday, October 6, 2017, 6:42pm

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (wrist) took full practice reps all week. McCoy should be fine to face the Bengals. He has racked up 379 total yards through four weeks, but has yet to find the end zone.

Bengals QB AJ McCarron (achilles) took full practice reps again Friday.

Friday, October 6, 2017, 6:42pm

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) took full practice reps again Friday.

Friday, October 6, 2017, 6:42pm

Bengals TE Ryan Hewitt (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 5.

Friday, October 6, 2017, 6:42pm

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 5. Tyler Kroft (neck, knee) took full practice reps again Friday and will play. He’s a Sneaky Start after his two-touchdown Week 4. The Bengals are desperate for pass-catchers to complement A.J. Green.

Bengals WR John Ross and TE Tyler Eifert ruled OUT

Chris Roling - [Full Article]

The Bengals will be without WR John Ross and TE Tyler Eifert in their Week 5 matchup against the Bills.

Fantasy Impact:

The news shouldn't impact the Bengals WR depth chart much—AJ Green is the only one you want to start, and we have him ranked as a top-6 WR in both standard and PPR leagues. As for the tight end position, Tyler Kroft is a viable TE2/Flex play in a neutral matchup versus the Bills. If you're a Jordan Reed/Vernon Davis owner in need of bye week help at the position, you could do worse than Kroft.

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 6:29pm

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday.

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 6:29pm

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (neck, knee) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. If Kroft is able to play, he will be a Sneaky Start after his two-touchdown Week 4. The Bengals are desperate for pass-catchers to complement A.J. Green.

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 6:29pm

Bengals TE Ryan Hewitt (knee) missed practice again Thursday.
