Tyler Eifert out in Week 3 due to knee and back injuries

Tyler Eifert out in Week 3 due to knee and back injuries”

Eifert (knee/back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Appearing in two games thus far into the 2017-18 campaign, he has registered just four catches on five targets en route to a mere 46 yards and zero touchdowns.

Eifert was unable to practice at all this week, so it comes as little surprise that he will be sidelined Sunday.

No Eifert or Ross means the Bengals will have Tyler Kroft starting at tight end and some combination of Brandon LaFell, Tyler Boyd and Alex Erickson behind top receiver A.J. Green.

Eifert underwent offseason surgery on his back, which he admitted in July will affect him in some ways for the rest of his career. He was listed as a non-participant in Thursday's practice with an illness.

The 2013 first-round pick is in the final year of his rookie contract with the Bengals. In 2014 he played only one game due to a dislocated elbow, missed three games in 2015 due to a neck stinger and injured his ankle in the Pro Bowl that required surgery and past year missed half the season due to a back injury.

Last season, Eifert appeared in just eight regular-season games while recording 29 receptions on 47 targets.
