News: Eifert (elbow) has been placed on the Bengals' injured reserve/designated to return list, ESPN reports. Impact: Eifert suffered a gruesome-looking dislocated elbow during the first half of the Bengals' season opener and now won't be eligible to return until Cincinnati's Week 11 game in New Orleans. As a result, fellow tight end Jermaine Gresham should experience a welcomed boost in his fantasy stock, as he could rival running back Gio Bernard to be the second option in the Bengals' passing game behind star wideout A.J. Green.(RotoWire, )

News: The Bengals believe that Eifert dislocated his elbow Sunday against the Ravens, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports. Impact: Such an injury would sideline him for some time, so if the fears are justified, Breer suggests that Eifert could be a candidate for the team's IR-designated for return designation, which would rule him out through Week 8. Such a scenario would would of course boost the value of fellow Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham, with WR Brandon Tate also in line for some possible extra snaps.(RotoWire, )

News: Eifert exited Sunday's game against the Ravens with an elbow injury, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports. Impact: Eifert went down after making a catch and possibly suffered a dislocated elbow. The second-year tight end has since been taken to the Bengals' locker room for further evaluation and is now considered doubtful to return to action. Prior to exiting Sunday's game, Eifert led the Bengals with three catches for 37 yards. Should Eifert be sidelined for the remainder of Week 1, Jermaine Gresham should benefit from facing significantly less competition for targets at tight end.(RotoWire, )
