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.

The Ben­gals made him the 21st over­all choice in the 2013 draft, hop­ing his pass re­ceiv­ing skills would upgrade their of­fence. A dis­lo­cated el­bow in the 2014 opener ended that sea­son.
