Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) participated in practice Saturday, July 27.
Huddle Up: Eifert has been a TE1 and a force in the red zone when healthy, but he just hasn't been able to stay on the field. Even with all the injuries, he still has TE1 upside. Just don't expect him to be available for a full season.

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will miss the rest of the season after surgery to repair a broken ankle.
Huddle Up: Eifert just can't catch a break. No pun intended. Tyler Kroft could have some touchdown luster after scoring seven times last season. He's worth keeping on the watch list as a bye-week filler.
