C.J. Uzomah a now show in Week 10 loss to NO
C.J. Uzomah caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Saints.
Analysis: With A.J. Green out of the lineup, there was hope that Uzomah would have a larger role in the Bengals offense, but that didn't happen. Uzomah now has three of fewer catches in every game but one on the season and has just five catches for 36 yards over his past three games. Uzomah is a low-level TE2 as the Bengals head to Baltimore in Week 11.

C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) was removed from the Week 10 injury report.
Analysis: Uzomah got in a full practice Friday after being limited the last two days. He's healthy coming off Cincy's bye. With A.J. Green sidelined, Uzomah should see heavy Week 10 targets.

C.J. Uzomah plays 97 percent of snaps
C.J. Uzomah played 63-of-65 snaps (97 percent) Week 8 against the Bucs.
Analysis: According to Pro Football Focus, he also ran 31 routes, tied for fifth among tight ends for the week heading into Monday night. Uzomah failed to come down with any of his four targets, but usage was not the issue on Sunday. Even if Tyler Kroft is able to return, Uzomah will once again be a streaming option following the bye week.

Uzomah goes catch-less on 4 targets in win
C.J. Uzomah went catch-less on four targets in the Bengals' Week 8 win.
Analysis: Uzomah tweaked his shoulder early in the game on an injury that looked like a stinger, and he was a non-factor the rest of the way. Uzomah has flirted with TE1 viability this year, but he isn't a must-hold during Cincy's Week 9 bye.

C.J. Uzomah finds end-zone in Week 7
C.J. Uzomah caught two passes for 13 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Uzomah caught Andy Dalton's only touchdown on a play that capped off a 77-yard second quarter drive. It was his only notable play of the night. Uzomah has been a plug-and-play TE1 since Tyler Eifert went down. He has a plus matchup with the Bucs in Week 8.

Uzomah (shoulder) removed from injury report
C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Bengals' final injury report for Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: He was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice after being limited earlier in the week. Uzomah drew a season-high seven targets in last week's loss to Pittsburgh and should continue to play an active role in the Bengals' passing game sans Tyler Eifert (I.R., ankle). He'll be an intriguing streamer Sunday night against Kansas City's Swiss cheese secondary.
