No Eifert, Boling for Bengals finale, Green’s status unclear
CINCINNATI (AP) — Tight end Tyler Eifert and left guard Clint Boling will miss the Bengals' final game with injuries.
Receiver A.J. Green probably won't play, either, although he hasn't been ruled out officially.
And several others, including 11-year veteran Andrew Whitworth, are wondering if it'll be their final game with the Bengals when they host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday with little at stake.
Bengals place tight end Tyler Eifert on injured reserve
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals have placed tight end Tyler Eifert on injured reserve with a back injury.
Eifert missed the first six games of the season because of an ankle injury from last season's Pro Bowl. He finished with 23 receptions for 394 yards and five touchdowns this season.
Guard Clint Boling also went on IR with a shoulder injury. He was originally hurt Sept. 29 vs. Miami, but played with it until a Dec. 18 loss to Pittsburgh.
