Bengals' Eifert leaves Pro Bowl in walking boot, initial tests negative
Cincinnati Bengals fans are holding their breath Monday after tight end Tyler Eifert suffered a foot injury early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Pro Bowl.
Eifert came up limping after a missed connection with quarterback Jameis Winston early in the fourth quarter. After getting treatment on the sideline, Eifert was helped to the locker room for X-rays.
"I don’t really know what happened. I jammed my heel. I’ll be good," Eifert said after Team Irvin's 49-27 win over Team Rice, per the team's official website.
Initial tests Sunday night did not reveal a break, but Eifert was placed in a walking boot. He'll likely get further testing done when he gets back to Cincinnati. Eifert finished the game with one catch for 11 yards.
