Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That strengthens the case for TE C.J. Uzomah as a Week 6 spot starter. He played 92% of the offensive snaps last week and ran a route on 28 of QB Andy Dalton’s 32 dropbacks. Pittsburgh has allowed the most receptions, 2nd most yards and 3rd most TDs to TEs.
Bengals TE Tyler Kroft missed Wednesday's practice with the foot injury he suffered last weekend. His absence this Sunday would make TE C.J. Uzomah a safer spot-start play against the Steelers' 31st-ranked TE defense.
Bengals TE Tyler Kroft injured his right foot in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is officially questionable to return. Cincinnati, of course, is already without TE Tyler Eifert. It leaves TE C.J. Uzomah as the clear lead dog.
Bengals TE Tyler Kroft is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with the sprained knee he suffered in Tuesday's practice, according to insider Jim Owczarski. No word on which ligament Kroft injured. HC Marvin Lewis expects Kroft to be available for the season opener, although the longer end of the timetable would keep him out through Week 1. We'll keep an eye on his progress, but Kroft isn't worth rostering in redraft leagues. If both he and Tyler Eifert (ankle) are out, Cincinnati would be down to TE C.J. Uzomah.
Bengals TE Tyler Kroft suffered a hyperextended knee in Tuesday's training camp practice, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's scheduled for an MRI tomorrow to determine the extent of the damage and how long he'll be sidelined. Kroft was slated to serve as Cincinnati's primary pass-catching TE for however long Tyler Eifert (ankle) is out. C.J. Uzomah is next up on the depth chart.
