Bengals: Tyler Eifert to miss rest of season?

The Cincinnati Bengals could be without tight end Tyler Eifert for the rest of the 2014 season.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis admitted that there is a chance that Eifert may not return to the field this year after dislocating his elbow against Baltimore in Week 1.

The Bengals place Eifert on short-term IR giving him eight weeks to hear but that may not be enough. For now Jermaine Gresham will continue to handle the duties at tight end.
