Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert may miss the rest of the 2017 season as a result of the back injury that has limited him to two games this year.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Field Yates reported Eifert is deciding whether or not to have back surgery for the third time, which would end his season.

Injuries have been a problem throughout Eifert's career. In his first four years, he missed 27 games and has yet to play a full season.

When healthy, Eifert can be a solid receiver, especially inside the red zone. He had 52 receptions for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2015, which helped get him to the Pro Bowl.
