The Cincinnati Bengals will have to get used to life without Tyler Eifert.

The Bengals star tight end is still rehabbing from ankle surgery after suffering a serious injury in his first career Pro Bowl appearance. According NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Eifert is eyeing to return to game action at some point between Week 4 and Week 6 of the regular season. He has only recently started jogging and is hoping to get back on the field on the short-end of that timeline.

However, Eifert will definitely miss some significant time.

Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah will see increased reps with the first-team offense until the 25-year-old is able to make his return. Eifert finished in a tie for the league lead with 13 touchdowns last season and replacing that kind of production will prove difficult for Bengals.

Cincinnati hosts the Miami Dolphins for a Thursday night matchup in Week 4 before heading out on the road for games against the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots afterward.
