Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) says that 'everything is fixed'

Tyler Eifert, the 2013 first-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals, has spent more than half of his career on the sidelines, missing 41 out of a potential 80 regulars season games due to a string of injuries, from a concussion, several stingers, a severe elbow injury (and a torn labrum repaired at the same time), an ankle surgery and, in the last two seasons, multiple disc repairs in his back and a cleanup in his knee.

Despite all the injuries, surgeries and rehabilitation, Eifert never considered retiring.

“No,” he said quickly. “No. If I didn’t think that I could get back to being a dominant player then yeah, I probably would. But there’s no question I can get back to where I’ve been.”

And as of now, “everything is fixed,” he said.

Fantasy Impact: 

In 24 games since 2014, Eifert has averaged 3.7 catches for 46 yards and 0.75 touchdowns per game. He's a player to monitor closely this offseason. If he lands with a good quarterback and/or in a TE-friendly offense, he would be a worthwhile dart throw in the later rounds.
