Bengals TE Tyler Eifert listed as doubtful

The Cincinnati Bengals tight end position could be thin this weekend with Tyler Eifert listed as doubtful and Jermaine Gresham questionable.

The Cincinnati Bengals have already ruled cornerback Terence Newman (knee) and Devon Still (back) out this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. Newman suffered an MCL sprain against the Indianapolis Colts and has missed the previous two games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings. It's possible that Newman, who was originally described as having a three-week rehabilitation process, will return for the playoffs.

Tight end Tyler Eifert (neck) didn't practice this week and is listed as doubtful. Jermaine Gresham (hamstring) is questionable.

It's hard to imagine that the Bengals will play them if there's a threat of further aggravation. Beating the Baltimore Ravens is ideal, it's not mandatory for Cincinnati, who is already hosting a postseason game this year.

Vontaze Burfict practiced on Friday and is listed as questionable from a concussion that he sustained against the Minnesota Vikings last week.
