The Cincinnati Bengals won’t have tight end Tyler Eifert on Sunday when they attempt to stave of an 0-3 start in Green Bay against the Packers.
Eifert, whose status has been up in the air all week, won’t play due to knee and back injuries, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

A big-time playmaker for the Bengals when healthy, Eifert (like the rest of Cincinnati’s offense) got off to a slow start in 2016. In his first two games, Eifert caught just four passes for 46 yards and was held without a score.
Throughout his career, the tight end has hauled in 127 receptions for 1,537 yards and 20 touchdowns.
