Tyler Eifert Reportedly Considering Surgery on Back Injury That Would End Season

Tyler Eifert Reportedly Considering Surgery on Back Injury That Would End Season

According to a report by ESPN Bishop Dwenger graduate Tyler Eifert will undergo back surgery that will sideline him the rest of the 2017 season.

As Schefter notes, this would be Eifert's third back surgery since 2014. While the team expressed interest in re-signing him during the offseason, a new contract has not materialized yet.

Eifert has shown the ability to play at a Pro Bowl level when healthy. In 13 games during the 2015 season, he finished with 52 receptions for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns, the latter of which was good for No. 2 across the NFL.

Eifert has featured in just two games this season, hauling in four passes for 42 yards.

The Bengals fifth-year tight end has already undergone two surgical procedures on his back during his National Football League career and has yet to complete a full 16-game slate. While he was initially held out because of the ankle issue, the back injury pushed his debut to midseason and ultimately ended his year after he elected to have surgery.

After consulting with Dr. Watkins, Bengals' TE Tyler Eifert has chose to undergo season-ending back surgery, per source. He hasn't played since week two of the regular season.
