When his ankle finally healed, his back gave out. So now after months of rehabbing one thing or another, Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is ready to take the field again.

Finally.

Via Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Eifert said he was ready to get back on the field this week, though he’s still being listed as limited.

“In my mind, I’m ready,” Eifert said. “Two weeks ago, before it happened I was in really really good shape and I’ve kind of been laid up just trying to get the back right. All things considered, I don’t think there’s anything else I have to pass.”

Eifert joked that the recent back problem kept him from worrying about the comeback from the ankle injury, saying: “I can’t think about two things at once.”
