Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert suffered what appeared to be a serious injury on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. He went down with the injury in the third quarter.

He caught a pass from Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton for a two-yard gain. He was then tackled by Falcons linebacker De’Vondre Campbell.

On the tackle, Eifert’s ankle appeared to be tangled and twisted. He appeared to be in a lot of pain following Campbell’s tackle.

He had to be carted off of the field. Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis should have an update on his condition following the game.0

Before his injury, he had four receptions for 38 yards. He also had a 15-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.

The touchdown reception was his first of the season.

Eifert, a former first-round draft pick by the Bengals in the 2013 NFL Draft, has had to battle injuries throughout his career. He has not played an entire season thus far in his career.

Over the past two seasons, he has only appeared in six games. Eifert played in just two games during the 2017 season, where he had four receptions for 46 yards.

His best season came in 2015 when he appeared in 13 games, including 12 starts. He had 52 receptions for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns.
