CIN: Bengals TE Tyler Eifert will likely miss ‘a few weeks,’ is ‘only running at half speed’

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) said yesterday he’s only running at half speed. He won’t play Sunday vs Pittsburgh and a source tells me it will likely “be a few weeks” before he’s back.
C.J. Uzomah played ahead of Tyler Kroft in Week 1, catching two passes for 59 yards. Eifert is a player to monitor. Owners with issues at tight end can consider stashing him as he may start to hit the waiver wire after this report.
SEA: Seahawks reiterate that RB Thomas Rawls is the starter

Of Thomas Rawls being the starter, Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell says “he’s always been our starter.”
This may or may not quiet the Christine Michael “truthers” out there, but Rawls is expected to ramp up his workload in the coming weeks, and the team is planning to start him against the Rams in Week 2. One very interesting note from Week 1: Rawls, serving as the backup to Michael, caught three passes on three targets. He saw only 11 targets in 13 games (starting nine) last season. This is a great sign for his potential value in PPR formats.
