CINCINNATI (AP) — Joe Mixon knows the ugly rushing numbers — his own, and the Bengals' overall.
He's barely been able to get back to the line of scrimmage, and that has to end if Cincinnati...

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals signed tight end Tyler Eifert to another one-year contract on Monday, hoping he can make it through a season without significant injury.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Grady Eifert gave No. 15 Purdue the boost it needed Saturday.
And once the senior forward got started, the Boilermakers took off.
Eifert scored 16 points and had four steals, both career highs, and grabbed five offensive rebounds to help Purdue overcome a sluggish start and pull away for an 81-62 victory over Nebraska.
CINCINNATI (AP) — A.J. Green had surgery on his injured toe. Tight end Tyler Eifert is recovering from a broken ankle. Andy Dalton is gone, too, sidelined by a torn thumb ligament in his passing hand.
What's left of the Bengals' offense? Running back Joe Mixon, who's settling into the role Cincinnati envisioned for him during last year's draft.
Whether or not Earl Thomas should have raised his middle finger in the direction of his team's sideline, this much is clear: His broken leg amid an ongoing flap with the Seattle Seahawks illustrates why the lack of guaranteed contracts is such a problem for NFL players.
This is exactly what Thomas was worried about when he sat out training camp. And when he skipped practices after the season started.
CINCINNATI (AP) — While Andy Dalton was throwing deep passes to A.J. Green and the rest of the Bengals receivers on Friday, Tyler Eifert was on a side field running sprints in shorts and a cut-off shirt.
He ran one sprint, then another. Next were some agility drills. The tight end did everything except catch one of Dalton's spirals.
The Bengals' most oft-injured player hopes that part comes soon.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals agreed to a one-year deal with often-injured tight end Tyler Eifert and a three-year deal with punter Kevin Huber on Thursday, holding onto two of their unrestricted free agents.
Eifert has been hurt during much of his five-year career in Cincinnati. He was sidelined for half of the 2016 season because of an ankle injury and a problem with a disc in his back that required surgery. He aggravated his back early last season and went on an injury list after two games.
CINCINNATI BENGALS (7-9)
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: QB AJ McCarron; C Russell Bodine; TE Tyler Eifert; RBs Jeremy Hill and Cedric Peerman; P Kevin Huber; LB Kevin Minter; OTs Andre Smith and Eric Winston; DT Pat Sims.
The NFL's all-injury team may be better than the All-Pro team this season.
Aaron Rodgers behind center. David Johnson and Dalvin Cook in the backfield. Odell Beckham Jr., Julian Edelman and Brandon Marshall at wide receiver. Greg Olsen and Tyler Eifert split tight end reps. Joe Thomas and Jason Peters anchor the offensive line.
Then there's Deshaun Watson, Carson Palmer, Sam Bradford and Ryan Tannehill. Derek Carr and Jameis Winston have also missed a few games.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals had an eventful bye weekend.
They gained ground on the Ravens, lost ground to the Steelers, and lost tight end Tyler Eifert for the rest of the season.
Their next step in trying to recover from an 0-3 start comes in Pittsburgh next Sunday. Cincinnati (2-3) needs a win in their lopsided series with the AFC North leaders in order to stay relevant in the division race.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert will miss the rest of the season with a back injury that has put his career in jeopardy.
The fifth-year veteran missed half of last season with ankle and back injuries. He had surgery on a disc in his back last December. He aggravated it in the second game this season, forcing him to consider another procedure. He's been inactive for the past three games and was put on injured reserve Thursday.
Week 2 was tough on tight ends in fantasy football as five big names suffered injuries — none bigger than Greg Olsen of the Panthers breaking his right foot.
Olsen is expected to miss about six to eight weeks after having surgery on Monday. Rob Gronkowski (groin), Jordan Reed (chest), Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Tyler Eifert (back/knee) are all questionable to play this week.
CINCINNATI BENGALS (6-9-1)
New faces: WR John Ross, RB Joe Mixon, LB Kevin Minter, K Randy Bullock.
Key losses: LT Andrew Whitworth, RG Kevin Zeitler, CB Adam "Pacman" Jones (suspended by NFL for first game), LB Vontaze Burfict (suspended for first three games).
CINCINNATI (AP) — Giovani Bernard took the handoff, avoided a defender with a jump cut and ran 70 yards to the end zone. A.J. Green made a diving catch on the sideline, the golden bottoms of his cleats flashing in the sunlight. Tight end Tyler Eifert got open for a catch over the middle.
The Cincinnati Bengals' first practice of training camp was a throwback to the days when their diversified offense was formidable.
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.
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.
HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans are without running back Lamar Miller on Saturday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, who won't have receiver A.J. Green.
Miller, who hasn't missed a game this season, injured his ankle late in last week's win over the Jaguars. Green told reporters that he'd play in this game earlier this week after missing four games with a hamstring injury. But he was among the inactive players on Saturday night amid reports that he was unhappy with the decision.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Robert Griffin III shook off some rust, then couldn't jolt the Browns to a win.
They're 0-13, three losses from infamy and shame.
Griffin returned from injury and played for the first time in three months, but didn't stop Cleveland from falling closer to a 0-16 finish as the Cincinnati Bengals built a big early lead and held off the winless Browns 23-10 on Sunday in the snow.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals scored the first six times they got the ball and then held on at the end.
Forty-two days since their previous win, they had something to celebrate.
Andy Dalton threw a pair of touchdown passes and Cincinnati finally got its depleted offense moving without receiver A.J. Green.
The Bengals emerging from their long slump by sending the Philadelphia Eagles to their most lopsided loss of the season, 32-14 on Sunday.
CINCINNATI (AP) — A.J. Green wowed 'em with incredible catches and showed the crowd in London what everyone back home knows — he's nearly impossible to cover.
Tyler Eifert was back in the flow, getting into the end zone when the Bengals needed it most.
Even with all of that, the best they could do was tie.
Cincinnati's first visit to London summed up its season on a football pitch. Whatever worked last season when the Bengals won the AFC North has somehow evaporated a year later.
LONDON (AP) — Key starters on the banged-up Washington Redskins are active for Sunday's game in London versus the healthy Cincinnati Bengals.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Linebacker Vontaze Burfict was active Thursday night for the Cincinnati Bengals' game against the Miami Dolphins.
Burfict was suspended by the NFL for the first three games because of illegal hits. He was added to the roster Thursday morning.
Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) and tight end Tyler Eifert were inactive. Eifert returned to practice on a limited basis last week after recovering from ankle surgery.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Tight end Tyler Eifert can't help but think the Bengals would be scoring more if he were on the field. The way it's going, that could be in a couple of weeks.
Eifert returned to practice this week, though on a limited basis. He was sidelined for offseason workouts and training camp while recovering from surgery for a torn ligament in his left ankle.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Tight end Tyler Eifert hasn't been cleared for practice heading into the Cincinnati Bengals' opener on Sunday at the New York Jets, the first of several games he's expected to miss as he recovers from ankle surgery.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals rookie cornerback William Jackson III will have surgery for a torn muscle in his chest but could return at some point during the season.
Coach Marvin Lewis said on Thursday that Jackson will need surgery to reattach the pectoral muscle injured during practice this week. The first-round draft pick was expected to play on special teams and get limited time as a reserve cornerback.
Tight end Tyler Eifert had his surgically repaired left...
CINCINNATI (AP) — Tyler Eifert pointed to a crescent-shaped scar surrounding the ball on his left ankle. That little spot is sidelining the Cincinnati Bengals tight end for training camp, and maybe more.
He had surgery two months ago to repair a partial ligament tear that he suffered during the Pro Bowl. He was in a cast for six weeks and has to wear a protective boot for at least another week.
Eifert was the most prominent Bengal who couldn't participate Friday...
