Lewis: I'll be back with Bengals in 2017

Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis had little interest in having the retirement rumors gain any additional traction.

The Cincinnati Bengals endured a awful 2016 season that saw them finish third in the division and miss out on the playoffs for the first time since 2010.

Cincinnati's season is effectively done, even though they have one game left to play.

Lewis owns a 117-103-3 record as the Bengals' head coach.

According to a Thursday morning report from Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL, Cincinnati Bengals' tight end Tyler Eifert has encountered yet another significant injury.

After all, Lewis hasn't been particularly effective, despite being the second-most tenured coach in the league besides Bill Belichick.

Eifert spent the offseason rehabbing an ankle injury suffered in the Pro Bowl last January.

Eifert sat out Saturday's 12-10 loss to the Houston Texans and was placed on injured reserve two days later.

He also missed time this season with a back injury.

Eifert is expected to be ready for the start of next season, when he is playing on the final year of his rookie contract.

In 2016-2017, thanks to the aforementioned injury trouble, Eifert registered 29 receptions for 394 yards and five touchdowns.
