Mitchell fractured his wrist September 30 against the Raiders and was designated for return from IR on November 21st. Week 14 is the first week he was eligible to play in a game and it appears he will do just that against the Panthers. Before landing on IR, Mitchell recorded 19 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception in four starts.
