Tyler Eifert could miss Week 3 with back, knee injuries

Tyler Eifert

The Cincinnati Bengals have failed to score a touchdown through their first two games with most of their key players healthy, so we can only imagine how they might look in Week 3 without one of their biggest red zone threats.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Tyler Eifert is dealing with back and knee injuries that could hold him out of next Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Eifert, a 2013 first-round pick, has always had problems staying on the field. He has scored 18 touchdowns in his last 23 games, but the biggest issue for the former Notre Dame star is remaining healthy.

The Bengals fired their offensive coordinator after their Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans, and there have been rumblings that more drastic changes could be coming before long. Losing Eifert would leave them in an even more difficult spot.
