Player News - Bengals

Date: Team: Pos:

Bengals declared WR John Ross, CB Adam Jones, S Derron Smith, G Alex Redmond, G Christian Westerman, WR Tyler Boyd, HB Ryan Hewitt inactive for Week 7 against the Steelers.

This isn't a surprise as Ross was expected to miss this game with a knee injury. Jones being inactive means WR Antonio Brown will have an easier matchup this week.
Oct 22 - 4:02 PM

John Ross (questionable, knee) is not expected to play Week 7 against the Steelers.

Ross still needs another week to recover from a nagging knee injury. Holder of the fastest forty time in the history of the NFL Combine, Ross will be a nice deep threat for Andy Dalton if he can ever get healthy. So far, he's played just five snaps this year.

John Ross (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 7.

The Bengals' first-round pick has appeared in just one game this year, but he has a chance to play against the Steelers after getting in a full practice on Friday. Ross needs to establish a bankable role before being of any fantasy use.
Oct 20 - 2:28 PM

Bengals RCB Adam Jones (back) is listed as doubtful for Week 7.

It's good news for Antonio Brown, as Jones has had A.B.'s number to a greater extent than any cornerback in football over the past two seasons.
Oct 20 - 2:25 PM

Tyler Boyd (knee) is out for Week 7 against the Steelers.

He's not ready to go off Cincinnati's bye. Alex Erickson will continue to operate as the Bengals' slot receiver. Boyd is just a Dynasty stash at this point.
Oct 20 - 2:23 PM

Tyler Eifert doesn't feel his career is in jeopardy following his third back surgery.

"No, I'm not," said Eifert when asked if he was concerned about his long-term future in the NFL. "Doc said I'll be recovered to 100 percent, so I was happy to hear that." Eifert has flashed huge potential when healthy—he led all tight ends with 13 touchdowns in 2015—but injuries have limited him to just 10 games over the last two years. Headed for free agency, Eifert may have to settle for a bargain contract on the open market.

John Ross (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

ESPN Bengals reporter Katherine Terrell said the fact that Ross remains limited "doesn't bode well" for his chances of suiting up Sunday against Pittsburgh. The lightning-fast rookie has played just five snaps this year.
Oct 19 - 2:32 PM

John Ross (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It puts Ross on track to suit up for the first time since making his NFL debut in Week 2. The No. 9 overall pick in this year's draft has been held to one touch in one appearance, which resulted in a fumble against Green Bay. Then-OC Ken Zampese was fired the next week. Ross is off the redraft map.
Oct 18 - 3:44 PM

Bengals signed LS Clark Harris to a one-year extension through 2018.

A college tight end, Harris has been the Bengals' long snapper since 2009.
Oct 16 - 4:53 PM

John Ross (knee) returned to Bengals practice on Monday.

It's his first practice since Sept. 20. The rookie speedster was spotted fielding punts. Knee woes have limited the No. 9 overall pick to one touch in one appearance. He seems unlikely to contribute in re-draft leagues this season.
Oct 16 - 1:31 PM

Bengals placed TE Tyler Eifert on injured reserve with a back injury.

Eifert has opted for season-ending surgery to repair his injured back. The surgery comes with a 4-6 month recovery. An impending free agent, the injury-prone Eifert may have to settle for a reduced price on the open market this offseason.
Oct 12 - 3:20 PM

Tyler Eifert requires surgery on his back and is done for the season.

Back surgery is nothing new for Eifert, who underwent his first back surgery last December. Eifert is a supreme talent, but he simply hasn't had positive injury fortune as a pro. It's a devastating end to the 27-year-old's contract season. Tyler Kroft will be the Bengals' starter the rest of the way.
Oct 11 - 8:27 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tyler Eifert could undergo season-ending back surgery.

A decision on the matter will likely come on Thursday. It would be Eifert's third back surgery. Eifert has missed the last three weeks and hasn't looked close to returning. His back issues could potentially put his career in jeopardy. In a contract year, Eifert is likely going to struggle for 2018 free agent interest.
Oct 11 - 4:30 PM

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL.

Boyd will miss multiple weeks of action. No longer a meaningful part of the Bengals' receiver rotation, Boyd has six catches this season.
Oct 9 - 1:40 PM

Tyler Kroft caught 4-of-5 targets for 38 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo.

It's a step back after last week's 6/68/2 line. Kroft played better than his stats, making some big catches over the middle for Andy Dalton. He should remain the No. 2 option behind A.J. Green until Tyler Eifert returns.
