Jermaine Gresham: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

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.

Gresham (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gresham's practice reps were curbed for a second consecutive day, and he was joined by fellow tight end Tyler Eifert, who had been sidelined since suffering a stinger in Week 16. If everything plays out perfectly, quarterback Andy Dalton could have his entire arsenal at his disposal Sunday against the Chargers, but Gresham's status should become more clear as the week draws to a close.
Gresham (hamstring) took part in Thursday's practice, Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Both Gresham and Tyler Eifert (neck) were able to practice, though in what capacity is unknown. As Sunday's game against the Chargers approaches, it appears that Gresham's stay on the sideline will be contained to the season finale, but his availability will be more clear once Friday's injury report is released.
Gresham (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Gresham (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

Tyler Eifert is out as well, which leaves Alex Smith as the Bengals’ top tight end on Sunday.
Gresham (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens after not practicing either Thursday or Friday, the Bengals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The report notes that Gresham went on and off the practice field a few times Friday morning before being listed as a non-participant, which supports the notion that he has a better chance of playing this weekend than fellow TE Tyler Eifert, who is officially doubtful. Gresham should thus be treated as a game-time decision in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.

2013

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.
