Professional career

Cincinnati Bengals

Fisher was chosen in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.[4] Fisher was drafted as a left tackle and was targeted several times during pass plays. After Bengal's H-back, Ryan Hewitt injured his MCL during the regular season, Fisher's number was switched from 74 to 44 so he wouldn't have to check in as an eligible receiver every play he was used as a pass catcher.[5]

Fisher made his debut as an H-back against the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 2016 playoffs. After the season, Fisher switched back to 74 and began taking reps at center during the Bengal's training camp. With the departure of right tackle Andre Smith, Fisher is the back-up right tackle going into the 2016 regular season. He is also showing his versatility, getting acquainted with all five offensive line positions.[6]
