Jermaine Gresham will visit toe specialist Tuesday; fantasy status unclear
Jermaine Gresham is dealing with a toe injury and will have to visit a specialist. We break down the fantasy implications.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham will visit a toe specialist on Tuesday after missing Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, according to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports. Gresham sustained a toe injury in practice this past week and was a game-time decision on Sunday. According to the report, the Bengals expected Gresham to play after he “looked great running around.” The report describes the toe injury as a “contentious issue” for the team.
It’s a weird situation, but whatever the case, Gresham will know more about the injury on Tuesday. Gresham is having a so-so season, though he’s on pace for the lowest yardage total of his career. He’s caught 50 passes for 378 yards and three touchdowns on the year. That’s still good enough for third on the Bengals, however, and he’s definitely missed when he can’t play.
Fantasy Impact: Gresham doesn’t have a ton of fantasy value, but for owners hoping to get a good game out of him in the championship, they’ll need to see what happens with the practices and the injury report this week. Gresham might be worth a play if he gets healthy given that the Bengals are fighting for the AFC North, the only division still up for grabs in the AFC.
