Jermaine Gresham TE CIN 3 Months

Jermaine Gresham caught seven passes for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' playoff loss to San Diego.

Gresham scored his touchdown from four yards out midway through the second quarter on a dump-off pass from Andy Dalton. His receptions largely consisted of checkdowns, and Gresham played a bigger role than usual with Tyler Eifert nursing a shoulder injury. Gresham is under contract for $2,235,750 in 2014, including a $200,000 workout bonus. We suspect he will return to the Bengals unless Eifert makes major strides as a blocker during OTAs and training camp.

Jermaine Gresham (abdomen) is not practicing Thursday.

Perhaps Gresham's injury is more serious than initially thought. And since the Bengals can only earn a first-round bye if the Patriots lose at home to the Bills, it's possible he'll be held out of Week 17.

It's only Tuesday and it's Christmas Eve, so Gresham is likely just taking a rest day. He played through the issue last week and caught three passes for 49 yards and a score. Tyler Eifert (neck) also sat out on Tuesday.

Barring a setback, Gresham will be ready to roll against the Vikings. As per usual, Gresham and Tyler Eifert will cancel each other out for fantasy purposes. Neither player can be considered more than a low-end TE2.
