Tyler Eifert decides to have season-ending back surgery

Tyler Eifert decides to have season-ending back surgery”

The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7 at Heinz Field and it sounds like the AFC North rival will be without the services of their top tight end for that contest as well as the remainder of the 2017 season.

The Bengals tight end was reportedly in Los Angeles meeting with back specialists on Wednesday.

Tyler Eifert's comeback year has come to an end.

This will be the third back surgery of his career. In 2014, Tyler Eifert was placed on injured reserve after suffering a dislocated elbow in the Bengals' season opener against the Baltimore Ravens. He dealt with another back injury last season after returning from ankle surgery.

If he is able to return this season, we project Eifert for 45.0 catches, 502.2 yards and 3.66 touchdowns on 68.3 targets.

Eifert has featured in just two games this season, hauling in four passes for 42 yards.
