Bengals RT Jake Fisher Placed On Season-Ending NFI List With Irregular Heartbeat

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis mentioned during an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio that RT Jake Fisher was placed on the non-football injury list with an irregular heartbeat.

According to Lewis, Fisher will have a procedure this week to fix the issue.

A few weeks ago, Fisher was taken to the hospital with an undisclosed illness, so it’s likely that this was related to his irregular heartbeat.

It goes without saying that anything related to a player’s heart is a big concern. We’ll have to see what his prognosis is moving forward, but we’re hoping for good news that will allow him to continue his NFL career.

Fisher, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Bengals back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $4.259 million contract that included $1.986 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 and $705,000 over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Fisher appeared in eight games for the Bengals and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 58 offensive tackle out of 78 qualifying players.
