09/24/15 - TE Tyler Eifert's absence last season was a huge blow for QB Andy Dalton and the Bengals offense. You could almost hear the pages being ripped out of the Bengals playbook when it was announced he was done for the year. The former Notre Dame star is healthy and a force for Cincinnati. He followed up his 104-yard, two-TD performance in the opener with five catches for 49 yards and a TD on Sunday. He's a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses.
09/13/15 - TE Tyler Eifert caught nine passes for 104 yards and two touchdowns, all career highs, Sunday in a 33-13 victory against Oakland. Eifert spent most of last season on injured reserve with a separated shoulder and dislocated elbow.
08/18/15 - TE Tyler Eifert's season ended in the season opener last season with a dislocated elbow shortly after he had three receptions in the first 10 minutes of the game.
He wears an elbow brace, and in the preseason opener had two receptions for 30 yards while playing only 14 snaps.
He said, "When I'm out there I'm not thinking about my elbow brace or my repaired shoulder or anything like that. I'm just out there trying to play as fast as I can. It's actually a lot easier when you're on the field playing. You've got a lot less to think about."
He was naturally enthused about the way the game went against the Giants with the first unit on the field and that he was back.
He said, "I haven't been on the field. We've had an offseason. We're excited about who we have on the field."

09/07/14 - TE Tyler Eifert left the game with an apparent right elbow injury after 14-yard reception with 3:31 left in the first quarter. Eifert had three catches for 37 yards, but did not return. His status for next week is uncertain. Coach Marvin Lewis said his team had the depth to overcome Eifert's injury, especially with Alex Smith on the depth chart. "We have some flexibility," Lewis said. "Obviously, when Eifert went down, we changed a little bit offensively from the original plan. You have to credit the offensive coaches to keep on rolling like that. But Alex Smith knows his spots, so we have some depth there."
