Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will not practice at all prior to his team's Week 1 game against the New York Jets, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Backup Tyler Kroft has a shot to play in the opener, but his knee injury makes his questionable at best, which leaves C.J. Uzomah as the last man standing. Owners are advised to avoid this situation entirely until Eifert is cleared to go.
