If you play football and your first name is Tyler, don’t play tight end (h/t to John).
The Bengals have had a pair of Tyler’s who were tight ends unable to stay healthy over the last four years. While the injury woes of Pro Bowler Tyler Eifert always made the headlines, backup Tyler Kroft had his own share of injuries that cost him 13 games over the last two seasons.
Kroft was hoping to find more success in Buffalo after signing a nice three-year deal this offseason with the Bills, but it’s already off to a rough start after breaking his foot in OTAs.

It’s actually the same foot Kroft had a broken bone in last season that ultimately cost him 11 games. This is a brutal way to begin offseason workouts with a new team, and it will undoubtedly put him behind the eight ball going into next season.
