The Western Star - - Sports -

CINCIN­NATI - 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 vet­eran 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 past three games and was put on in­jured re­serve Thurs­day. The Ben­gals (2-3) are on their bye week. They re­sume with a game at Pitts­burgh (3-2) on Oct. 22.
