Drew Sample (knee) undergoes surgery Thursday, season likely done

Drew Sample had surgery Thursday in his knee and Zac Taylor says he’ll go on IR soon.

Fantasy Impact

Sample injured his knee in Week 2 against the Cowboys where he was primarily utilized as a blocker up to that point. Hayden Hurst should continue to play an every down role for the Bengals.

Drew Sample inactive for Thursday night

According to James Palmer of NFL Network, TE Drew Sample is inactive for Week 4's Thursday night game for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Sample has not been very active for the Bengals, catching just two passes this season. TE Hayden Hurst has been the guy for Cincinnati this year and can be seen as a streaming option for fantasy teams every week. He has 11 catches for 77 yards and will likely have touchdown opportunities later this season as the offense continues to ascend after a slow start.

Drew Sample (knee) was walking around at Friday's practice with a leg brace and using a crutch.

Fantasy Impact

After being carted off the field on Thursday with what was feared to be a serious knee injury, this could certainly be viewed as positive development for Sample. The injury is now reportedly expected to keep him out of action a few weeks but not threaten the fourth-year tight end's entire season. Sample is expected to share the position with free-agent acquisition Hayden Hurst this season as the better blocker between the two.

Fantasy Impact

There is no further word on Sample and what the injury is at this time. He figures to continue to be the primary blocking tight end for Cincinnati with Hayden Hurst taking over the primary receiving role.

Drew Sample quiet in Super Bowl loss

Bengals TE Drew Sample was very quiet in the Bengals disappointed loss to the Rams in Super Bowl 56. No targets or catches for Sample. According to Nathan Jahnke of PFF, Sample only saw 19 snaps out of a possible 61 plays for Cincinnati.

Fantasy Impact

Sample was outplayed by pending free agent C.J. Uzomah, who saw more snaps and targets. With Uzomah potentially out the door, Sample could be a sleeper pick next season if the Bengals don’t add a tight end.
