Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert has played in just 10 games over the last two seasons, and it appears he's facing another malady heading into the 2018 campaign.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Tuesday that the veteran tight end is dealing with an undisclosed medical issue this spring, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

When asked for an update Wednesday, Lewis admitted he did not know if Eifert will be ready for training camp in July, according to Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson.

Cincinnati re-signed Eifert to a one-year contract in March worth up to $8 million, but it appears his status for this upcoming season is completely up in the air. The former first-round pick was limited during organized team activities last month, as well.

If Eifert were to miss time in 2018, Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah would see a bump in snaps at tight end.
