Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham is recovering from hernia surgery -- the reason why he hasn't reported for OTAs.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham is recovering from hernia surgery. 

ESPN's Coley Harvey reported on the development. He also added the Bengals re-signed 10-year veteran tight end Alex Smith

"With one tight end nursing an unspecified injury the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday re-signed another. 

"Alex Smith, a 10-year veteran who had been an unrestricted free agent this offseason, was added just as tight end Jermaine Gresham goes through his own injury. 

"A league source told ESPN's Field Yates on Tuesday that hernia surgery has kept Gresham out of on-field practices since they began two weeks ago. Coach Marvin Lewis admitted to reporters last week that Gresham was hurt, but he declined to go into specifics of the injury. 

"Not only has Gresham missed all of the voluntary organized team activities to this point, he also wasn't practicing in Tuesday's mandatory minicamp, although he was in attendance. Before that sighting, he hadn't been seen by media since early May, when he was around for voluntary offseason conditioning workouts. 

"According to Yates, there is no exact timetable on Gresham's return. 

"With Smith's return, the Bengals are officially at full capacity on their roster. They now have 90 players. While they can cut players and add others at any time between now and training camp, this figures to be the roster they will carry into the preseason.  

"'Alex played significant snaps for us last year, and it's good to get him back in the fold,' coach Marvin Lewis said. 'He's ready to go physically, and it's minicamp week, so he jumps right back in there for us.'

"Smith's only season with the Bengals was 2013. He signed last offseason as an unrestricted free agent from Cleveland. He played in every one of Cincinnati's regular-season games last year, starting two of them. His last start came during the regular-season finale, when he played in place of both Gresham and Tyler Eifert, the Bengals' top two tight ends who had suffered injuries the week before. 

"Eifert also has missed time this spring. He didn't practice last week after battling through a minor shoulder injury. He began Tuesday's minicamp, but didn't finish the workout. 

"Smith has played in 119 career games, making 57 starts. He also has 163 catches for 1,473 yards and 13 touchdowns." 

Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website earlier reported on Gresham's absence in his June 3 update, saying the Bengals' tight end should be back in time for training camp although no specific details regarding his injury were divulged back then.  

"It's believed tight end Jermaine Gresham has an injury that won't prevent him from being ready for Bengals training camp in late July. 

"Gresham didn't work again Tuesday, the fourth of nine voluntary practices, and indications are he won't be in the remaining five or the three-day mandatory mincamp June 10-12. Tyler Eifert, the other starting tight end, is out with a shoulder injury that is not related to the stinger that limited him to three snaps in last year's playoff game and it's unclear when he'll return. 

"'It's more of a feel thing. It's not a serious injury,' Eifert said. 

"Head coach Marvin Lewis wouldn't elaborate but he said he expects both to be ready for training camp. He said Gresham has been on the premises rehabbing.

"'He's not just out here because he's not practicing. He's doing what he has to do,' Lewis said." 

The 25-year-old Gresham is entering his fifth NFL season -- all with the Bengals. He was originally drafted by Cincinnati 21st overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. He has amassed 218 receptions, 2,262 yards and 19 touchdowns, per ESPN stats

Mohamed Sanu's Updated 2014 Fantasy Outlook Heading into Week 7

Oct 13 2014 6:37pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Another week, another strong fantasy performance for Cincinnati Bengals wideout Mohamed Sanu.  Really, Sunday's eventual tie with the Carolina Panthers proved to be Sanu's best output to date thanks to the absence of star wideout A.J. Green. The Rutgers product's 18-point explosion, making him the week's fifth-highest scorer at the position entering Monday, was his third dip into double digits:  Well, for the 38.8 percent of owners who actually bought int ...

Mohamed Sanu Must Be Owned in All Fantasy Leagues After Injury to A.J. Green

Oct 11 2014 4:28pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Despite a wealth of injuries, a deep and potent Cincinnati Bengals offense is set to make a fantasy star out of wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. Owners both in need and comfortable at the position will want to hop on board for the ride. The Cincinnati wideout corps has always given owners pause. After A.J. Green's surefire elite production, a hodgepodge of names, including Sanu, Marvin Jones, and even tight ends Jermaine G ...

Andy Dalton No More Than a Fantasy Bench Option with A.J. Green Sidelined

Oct 11 2014 3:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Cincinnati Bengals are a well-rounded, defensive-minded team set to make a run at one of the top playoff seeds in the AFC. They certainly have the talent to overcome the loss of wide receiver A.J. Green, who will miss Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers with a right big toe injury, according to sources for ESPN's Bob Holtzman (via ESPN.com's Coley Harvey). However, Green's absence forces quarterback Andy Dalton to play a game man ...

Cincinnati Bengals superstar wide receiver A.J. Green left Wednesday's practice after apparently aggravating a previous toe injury:   Richard Skinner of Cincinnati.com reported the news: Seemingly indestructible after missing just one game in his first three brilliant NFL seasons, discouraging signs surfaced for Green toward the beginning of the 2014 campaign. Green suffered a turf toe injury that kept him out for almost all of Week 2 and put his status in a bit of doubt moving forward. ...

Bengals Can't Afford More Offensive Ineptitude After Embarrassing SNF Loss

Oct 6 2014 12:16am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Cincinnati Bengals entered Sunday night's matchup with the New England Patriots with an undefeated record and an opportunity to establish the team as one of the best in the entire league. Cincinnati left the contest with a bruised ego, a 43-17 loss and a lot of questions. Losing to a team with a formula for sustained success like New England certainly isn't cause to hit the panic button in Cincinnati. However, the fact tha ...

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots ran over the Cincinnati Bengals, handing the Bengals their first loss while getting the Patriots' offense back on track. Sunday night is not historically the Bengals' best time. Neither are the playoffs.

Cincinnati Bengals vs New England Patriots: Breaking Down New England's Gameplan

Oct 2 2014 8:51pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New England Patriots aren't a team that rests on its laurels. That is for the best, because at 2-2 and fresh off a 41-14 drubbing by the Kansas City Chiefs, they have no laurels to speak of. New England won't receive any rest this week as it faces the undefeated (3-0) Cincinnati Bengals who have looked like the best team in football through four weeks of regular-season play. After a 13-6 loss last year, Tom Brady and his offensive crew will be looking to finally ...

Andrew Hawkins Becoming Star in Cleveland Browns Balanced Offense

Sep 27 2014 8:23pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins is probably a pretty easy player to overlook. At just 5'7" and 180 pounds, he is never going to stand out as the biggest guy on the field. Playing alongside guys such as A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham with the Cincinnati Bengals for his first three NFL seasons, Hawkins had trouble standing out in the receiving crowd as well. In fact, Hawkins is likely best-known n ...

How Cincinnati Bengals Can Get the Most out of Dane Sanzenbacher in 2014

Sep 16 2014 5:45am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Dane Sanzenbacher—a fourth-year veteran who was undrafted out of Ohio State—has largely been ineffective in a Cincinnati Bengals uniform.  Given the whole "undrafted" part, the lack of production likely wouldn't make anyone give a second look. However, his rookie season in Chicago showed signs of promise.  Sanzenbacher caught 27 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns.  That won ...
