The Bills have signed TE Tyler Kroft to a 3-year, $18.75 million deal. It (laughably) makes Kroft the league's 15th highest-paid TE in average annual salary. The 2015 3rd-rounder caught 42 balls and scored 7 TDs back in 2017 but has totaled just 25 grabs and 1 score in his other 37 career games. He tested as a 37th percentile athlete at the 2015 Combine. We were hoping the Bills would give WR-turned-TE Jason Croom a shot to win the lead job, but Kroft's contract makes him the heavy favorite. He remains an unexciting fantasy option.
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.
