The Cincinnati Bengals received good news this week as they learned tight end Tyler Eifert is 100 percent healthy and ready for training camp.
Additionally, first round draft pick wide receiver John Ross is not 100 percent healthy, but he was cleared for training camp and will participate in some capacity.
John Ross says he cleared and will practice on limited basis. Says he'll be 100 percent full go soon. #Bengals— Jay Morrison (@JayMorrisonCMG) July 28, 2017
Like Eifert said back on April 10, he's cleared for camp— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) July 28, 2017
This is great news as the Bengals take the field for day one of training camp at 3:00 p.m. ET on Friday.
Ross and Eifert will be participating, but we should expect Ross to be limited and brought along slowly. Ross underwent labrum surgery in March due to a shoulder injury that he played through during his final year of college at Washington. Eifert underwent surgery in December 2017 for a back injury, which he encountered against the Steelers in Week 15 last season. This is just one of many injuries for Eifert after he missed the first six games of the 2016 season due to an ankle injury and another back injury.
It’s great that Eifert will be 100 percent healthy to start camp and that Ross is ready enough to participate in some capacity. Just this week, the Bengals said they thought Ross would need a few weeks before he made his camp debut.
