Gresham is not participating in OTAs due to an undisclosed injury, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Though his participation in OTAs is voluntary, Gresham appeared set to attend until a "physical issue" complicated that matter. The Bengals don't appear to be concerned that whatever issue Gresham is dealing with will impact his participation in training camp. In any case, Gresham could be primed to play second fiddle at tight end this season to Tyler Eifert, who saw more targets in the red zone last season.
Gresham (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Wild Card contest against the Chargers, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gresham's presence was expected in the Bengals' passing attack, just one week removed from sitting out with a hamstring concern. However, he could find it difficult to operate, against a San Diego defense that surrendered only one touchdown to tight ends in the final five games of the season.
Gresham (hamstring) is expected to play in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gresham built up to full participation in practice during the week, yet still held questionable status heading into the Bengals' first playoff tilt. Along with fellow TE Tyler Eifert (neck), Gresham may find it difficult to produce against a San Diego defense that gave up just one touchdown to tight ends in the final five contests of the season.
Though Gresham (hamstring) practiced fully Friday, he is listed questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, the Bengals' official site reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Gresham improved his targets, catches, yards and yards per target for the second consecutive season and finished in the top 10 among tight ends in both receptions (64) and receiving yards (737) last year. But the Bengals still saw fit to draft Tyler Eifert with their first-round pick. It's too early to tell how Eifert's role will impact Gresham, but Gresham has the edge in experience and chemistry with Andy Dalton, which should go a long way. At 6-5, Gresham is a big target in the passing game and has improved his route-running the last couple seasons. After A.J. Green, the Bengals don't have another top-shelf wide receiver, something that should continue to afford Gresham steady targets from Dalton.

2012

The Bengals loosened the reins on Gresham last season, and the second-year tight end showed healthy improvement, benefiting from Andy Dalton’s surprising play. Whereas in his rookie season Gresham was limited mainly to short routes, he increased his yards per target by almost a full yard last season and posted 10 receptions of 20-plus yards after not recording one in his first year. While his receptions increased by only four to 56 (though in one less game), his yards increased by 125 to 596. He also scored six touchdowns, seventh among tight ends.A lanky tight end at 6-5, Gresham uses his length to make for a big target in the passing game. He saw 14 red-zone targets, seven within 10 yards of the goal line. Gresham also improved at the nuances of his position, running sharper routes and creating more separation. A hamstring injury cost him two games, but he was consistently targeted in the passing game with at least five targets per game. Gresham is still developing, but his upside is obvious. A better rapport with Dalton this season and greater emphasis in the passing game could pay off big.

2011

The 2010 first-round pick battled through a late-season knee injury in a steady if unspectacular rookie year. Big and athletic at 6-6, 260, Greshman was excellent after the catch, using his size and skills to break tackles and gain solid yardage after contact. In fact, more than 76 percent (359 of 471) of his yards came after the catch. The way the Bengals used him, though, perhaps stifled his production. Greshman mainly ran short routes (5.7 YPT), depriving him of the opportunity to make plays downfield. And oddly, considering his size, the Bengals only targeted him nine times in the red zone all season. Perhaps that will change this season with last year's top two receiving options leaving town and a trio of young wide receivers left in their wake. The Bengals are unsettled at quarterback, but even if Carson Palmer doesn’t return it wouldn’t be all doom and gloom if rookie quarterback Andy Dalton took over – he'd likely lean on his tight end as a safety valve.

2010

Gresham suffered a season-ending knee injury before even taking the field for a game in 2009 for Oklahoma. Despite the injury, the Bengals took him with the 21st overall pick and have been pleased with his progress so far in camp. He lacks elite speed but is a polished receiver and elusive enough after the catch to make an impact immediately for the Bengals. To secure the starting spot he'll have to improve his blocking, something Chase Coffman couldn't do in his rookie season last year for the Bengals.
