Another year, another offseason of uncertainty with Tyler Eifert.
The Bengals tight end was mysteriously absent from Tuesday’s minicamp session. He did show up for Wednesday’s session but didn’t practice, leading to concerns if Eifert would be ready for the start of training camp in just over a month.
Marvin Lewis doesn’t know if he will, or at least is not saying.
Marvin Lewis said Eifert hasn’t had any setbacks but they are being cautious with him while practicing on the turf. Couldn’t say if he would be ready for training camp. #Bengals— Laurel Pfahler (@LaurelPfahler) June 13, 2018
Eifert had been present and working in OTAs before sitting out the past two days. He underwent back surgery during the 2017 regular season, followed by a minor procedure to have a cyst removed from his knee.
