CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Bengals Pro Bowl Tight End Tyler Eifert returned to practice in a limited role on Wednesday coming back from his ankle and back injury.

Eifert, who led all tight ends the NFL last season with 13 touchdowns, hasn’t played in a game this season since his ankle surgery in May. Eifert was expected to return sooner before suffering a separate injury to his back that has delayed the return. There is still a chance Eifert could make his season debut on Sunday.

Vontaze Burfict, just hours after being fined $75,000 by the NFL for his alleged actions in Sunday’s loss at New England, was carted off the practice field with an ankle injury. Burfict was listed as “limited” on the practice report. Marvin Lewis told Cincinnati.com and other beat writers after practice that the ankle injury doesn’t appear to be serious.

The Bengals host the Browns on Sunday at 1 p.m. The game has already been announced as a sellout.
