Jermaine Gresham | TE | Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham, a soon-to-be free agent, still has a place within the offense, according to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. 'We have a way that we do things, and how we want to accomplish things,' Jackson said. 'Within what we asked him to do this year, he did some good things. There are some things he knows he needs to do to be better, and he will work at them to be better.'
Huddle Up: Gresham hasn't quite lived up to his 2010 first-round draft status, but he's had a solid career and shouldn't break the bank to re-sign. Gresham had 62 receptions last season -- the second-highest single-season total of his career -- but averaged a career-low 7.4 yards per catch. Keep in mind, though, that fellow TE Tyler Eifert missed the season with a dislocated elbow and should be back for 2015.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham is an impending free-agent, and beat writer Geoff Hobson does not expect the team to re-sign him thanks to the emergence of FB Ryan Hewitt.
Huddle Up: The Bengals also have Tyler Eifert coming back from injured reserve to replace Gresham, so expect Jermaine to be wearing a new uniform in 2015.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (back) is inactive Sunday, Jan. 4, for the wild-card playoff game.
Huddle Up: The up-and-down late season stretch continues for Gresham who was injured in the Bengals' regular-season finale. Ryan Hewitt and Kevin Brock are the backups, but it would be a surprise if either sees more than a few targets.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (back) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Jan. 2, and is listed as questionable for the wild-card playoff game.
Huddle Up: It was a good sign that Gresham was at least able to get in some on-field Friday after sitting out practices Wednesday and Thursday, but you're definitely going to have to check in pre-game Sunday if you're planning on using the TE this weekend.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (back) did not practice Thursday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: Gresham has missed both of Cincy's practices this week after leaving the Week 17 game early with a back injury. Gresham is an undervalued weapon who's hauled in TD receptions in each of the Bengals' final two regular-season games so see if he's able to get on the practice field Friday.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (toe) will visit a specialist Tuesday, Dec. 16, for a second opinion on his injured toe, a source told FOX Sports NFL insider Mike Garafolo.
Huddle Up: Gresham, who had been enjoying a solid late-season run, missed Sunday's win over the Browns, and any time "specialists" and "second opinions" are needed, it almost never turns out for the better. For what it's worth, Ryan Hewitt (3-34) and Kevin Brock (1-2) filled in at TE Sunday and might have to for the remainder of the season.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (hernia) could sit out practice early in training camp, because he is recovering from offseason hernia surgery.
Huddle Up: Less Gresham means more work for Tyler Eifert, who may very well run away and hide with the Bengals' regular tight end gig while Gresham is recovering.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (hernia) is recovering from offseason hernia surgery, a league source told ESPN.com's Field Yates Tuesday, June 10. The time frame for his return is still unclear.
Huddle Up: With 3 months still remaining before the games that count, Gresham should be good to go as he tries to improve on his worst season (46-458-4) as a pro.

Cincinnati Bengals TEs Jermaine Gresham (undisclosed) and Tyler Eifert (shoulder) are both dealing with injuries, but head coach Marvin Lewis expects both to be ready for training camp. Gresham has been on the premises rehabbing, and Eifert's injury isn't considered serious and is unrelated to the stinger which limited him in last season's playoff game.
Huddle Up: Gresham and Eifert combined for 85 catches, 903 yards and 6 TD grabs last season, and should post similar or better numbers this fall with Cincy still lacking an every-game No. 2 WR opposite stud A.J. Green. The problem, fantasy-wise, is that the workload will again probably be split nearly down the middle, keeping both values in the middling range.
