    At what point do the Bengals move on from Tyler Eifert?

    -After Friday's walk-through, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis ruled out tight end Tyler Eifert (back) for Sunday's game (4:25 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) in Green Bay. Lewis offered his standard "we'll see," on Eifert 's status beyond this week. What they do know is he's now missed 27 of the last 50 games ...

    -Bengals rookie wide receiver John Ross jogged out to Friday’s walk-through but was also ruled out. It's believed the Bengals were getting another MRI for his knee and it's hard to say what his immediate future is, too, because Lewis also played the 'we'll see,' card. So it looks like it's a big "we'll see," down the road for two first-round picks they projected to have big impacts on the offense ...

    Quick hits: Eifert, Ross out for Sunday; Lewis says Lazor re-directing; No tundra; Kumerow waived

    Too much talent to throw in the towel just yet.

    If the Bengals lose a couple of more games in the next three I would get him healthy and trade him for whatever I could get.

    You might be on to something. Heck, the Texans just beat the Bengals without a tight end.

    They don't need to move on from him. The Bengals will probably try to get him signed for cheaper due to injury concerns. However Eifert probably will sign elsewhere this off season just to get a fresh start.

    It would have to be a really good deal for them to bring him back IMO. Im not sure I would even want him back to be honest. You need guys that are available to play. Hes not an asset if hes only playing in 50% of the games.

    What is their choice really? Bigger needs in the draft other than drafting another TE. Kind of stuck with him. If they deal him he probably will play 100% of the games for whatever team he goes to. Just Bengal luck.
