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

NFL Week 8 Picks: Game-by-Game Over/Under Predictions

Oct 22 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Predicting the over/under scores for NFL games is one way to tempt the fates—and master schemer Bill Belichick—on a weekly basis. The league is coming up on the halfway point of the season in Week 8, so there is plenty of information on each team, and predicting the scores each team is liable to put up this week shouldn't be a problem, right? Well, attempting to sift through the deluge of stats, advanced ...

NFL Rumors: Latest Trade Gossip Heading Towards Deadline

Oct 21 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The NFL trade deadline doesn't generate nearly as much attention as its counterparts in other leagues. That's mostly because there's a lack of high-profile moves. You simply don't see many blockbusters. Now the question is if 2014 will be any different. Perhaps the biggest reason for the lack of activity is the number of teams still reasonably alive in the playoff races. It makes trading away key assets difficult. That's w ...

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 t ...

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

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 Gresham and Tyler Eifert, make it hard to nail down who will actually pr ...

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 quarterb ...

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

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 that the Bengals lost in di ...
