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.

Jermaine Gresham sustained a hip injury during the third quarter of Sunday night's loss at Pittsburgh and did not return.

The Bengals did not comment on the severity of the injury immediately following the game. Gresham isn't a standalone fantasy option, but his potential absence would open things up for Tyler Eifert. The rookie caught all three of his Week 15 passes -- including his touchdown -- after Gresham left. The duo has canceled each other out all season long.
