Eifert’s sea­son fin­ished

The London Free Press - - SPORTS -

Ben­gals tight end Tyler Eifert will miss the rest of the sea­son with a back in­jury that has put his ca­reer in jeop­ardy. The fifth-year player missed half of last sea­son with an­kle and back in­juries. He had surgery on a disc in his back last De­cem­ber. He ag­gra­vated it in the sec­ond game this sea­son, forc­ing him to con­sider an­other pro­ce­dure. He’s been in­ac­tive for the last three games and was put on in­jured re­serve Thurs­day. The Ben­gals made Eifert the 21st over­all choice in the 2013 draft, hop­ing his pass re­ceiv­ing skills would upgrade their of­fence. He’s been one of Andy Dalton’s favourite tar­gets, es­pe­cially near the goal-line, but has been se­verely lim­ited by in­juries in three of his five sea­sons.
