Eifert won’t play for 6th straight game as Bengals head to New England

The Cincinnati Bengals will be as healthy as they have been all year when the team heads to New England to play the Patriots on Sunday.

Tight end Tyler Eifert is the only player on the injury report, and he is listed as out for the sixth consecutive game.

Eifert made his first appearance at practice today since injuring his back Oct. 3, although he was limited to rehab work on the side.

The eight other players who appeared on the practice report earlier this week all were full participants today, meaning they are likely to play Sunday. They are wide receiver A.J. Green (calf), running back Jeremy Hill (chest), cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (hand), safety George Iloka (shoulder), guard Clint Boling (shoulder), tight end C.J. Uzomah (ankle), wide receiver James Wright (hamstring) and running back Rex Burkhead (hamstring).
