Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is expected to miss multiple weeks while recovering from his back injury, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Eifert does not need back surgery at this time, the source said.
On Thursday, coach Anthony Lynn chose to keep Gordon out of practice because of his knee. Fully padded, he rode a stationary bike on the side at the start of practice. However, Gordon was a limited participant in practice on Friday and was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Gordon missed the final three games of the regular season last year with knee and hip issues. During his rookie season, he also missed the final two games with a left knee injury that required microfracture surgery in the offseason.
After getting checked out by the Chargers’ medical staff, Gordon returned to the field midway through the third quarter.
Six-team playoffs in Weeks 14-16: In this format, the top two teams earn a bye in Week 14, while the next four teams battle in a pair of wild-card matchups. In Week 15, the two Week 14 winners face the top two seeds, who were on a Week 14 bye, in the semifinals. Those winners then face off in the Week 16 championship game. This format rewards the teams that had the best regular season, but it also allows in two extra teams and gives squads that get hot late in the season to make a run to the title — just like we often see in the NFL.
