Knee - ACL
March 10, 2019
The Bengals didn't extend a tender to Lengel (knee) on Friday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN reports.
Lengel suffered a serious injury in the last game of the regular season, and that injury was confirmed to be a torn ACL. In 11 games in 2018, the Eastern Kentucky product caught three of eight targets for 17 yards and a touchdown.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Lengel appeared in one game for the Browns in 2017 and was released in the spring. The Texans, in need of tight ends after C.J. Fiedorowicz retired, claimed him. That's before they added two more tight ends in the draft, giving them seven in training camp. He's probably the best blocker of the bunch, which might help land him a roster spot due to the newly assembled offensive line.
Lengel didn't make much of a fantasy splash in 2016, finishing the regular season with two catches for 22 yards and a TD in six games. The 26-year-old did, however, provide the Patriots with needed tight end depth behind Martellus Bennett after Rob Gronkowski suffered a season-ending back injury. He was waived/injured by the team in August.
