Tyler Eifert was eligible to return to the practice field this past Wednesday, but continues to stay in the rehab process.

Eifert suffered a dislocated elbow in Week 1, and was placed on IR/designated to return. He is eligible to return in the next couple of weeks, but it looks like he won't be back for a bit longer. The Bengals could certainly use the talented tight end back on the field with multiple WR injuries. He could have some nice value later in the season, but he'll have to get back on the field first.

Cincinnati Enquirer says Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) "likely won't be 100 percent at any point during the year."

We've already been introduced to the notion that Green won't be at 100-percent this season. It's a matter of how effective he can be during games. His status is listed as doubtful for Week 8 but according to the coaching staff, he's shown steady improvement and could be an option in Week 9 or 10.

 Brandon Thompson (knee) is questionable for Sunday.

Thompson has already missed the last four games with this knee injury and it looks like it's about to be five-straight. Geno Atkins will continue to fill in.

A.J. Green (toe) will not practice on Friday, but won't rule out playing Sunday.

It's a tough spot for fantasy owners as Green hasn't practiced all week. If he put in even just a limited practice Friday, it would convince owners to trust him on Sunday if he's active, but at this rate it doesn't look like he even will be. And if he is, you may not want to use him.

Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder) practiced fully Thursday. It looks like Lamur will be back this week. 

Lamur was out of action last Sunday due to a shoulder issue but should be active this weekend against the Ravens. He has been a solid source of tackles this season, racking up 37 over five games.

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (neck) was a full participant on Thursday.

Burfict suffered a cervical strain on Sunday against the Colts but will be fine to play this weekend against Baltimore. Cincinnati's defensive coordinator Paul Guenther said on Wednesday that Burfict's style of play did more harm than good and that he was hurting the team by sitting on the sidelines. There is no doubt that Burfict is a very valuable asset, but he needs to adjust his playing style before he is truly great.

Giovani Bernard (ribs) was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday.

While he's remained limited here in the middle of the week, there has been no talk of him missing Week 8 against the Ravens. Monitor the rest of his practice schedule for the week as the Bengals could just be playing it safe with him given the nature of the injury.

 Leon Hall (back) returned to practice Thursday.

Hall is a big part of the Bengals secondary and will be tasked with stopping a solid Baltimore receiving core on Sunday.

A.J. Green (toe) did not practice Thursday.

Green has stated he plans on playing this Sunday but he has yet to hit the practice field this week so his status for Sunday will likely be a game time decision.

Giovani Bernard (ribs) was limited at practice Wednesday.

While he was limited in practice on Wednesday, there is no evidence that suggests he would be unable to play on Sunday against Baltimore. Bernard owners should check back closer to game time to be on the safe side.
