RB - CIN - IR
Week 12 Outlook
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) has officially been placed on IR and will miss at least the next three games.
Mixon’s next chance to play will be Week 14 against the Cowboys. The star running back hasn’t played since October 18 against the Colts, and it’s looking more and more likely that the Bengals could just opt to shut him down for the remainder of the season. Giovani Bernard becomes a RB2 while Mixon is sidelined, while Samaje Perine has some deep-league flex appeal.
Bengals' RB Joe Mixon has officially been ruled out for Week 11 with a foot injury.
HC Zac Taylor broke the news on Friday. Mixon had been trending down all week and this announcement isn't too surprising. Giovani Bernard should slot in comfortably as an RB2 against Washington and should also be a nice value play in DFS.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) was not seen at Friday’s practice, and therefore has not practiced all week. He should be considered highly doubtful to play Week 11 vs. Washington.
It’ll be another week of Giovani Bernard with a little bit of Semaje Perine sprinkled in. For what it’s worth, Sunday is Bernard’s birthday, so maybe he has a little added motivation against the Washington Football Team. He should be considered a RB2 based on the workload he’s likely to see on Sunday.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) is once again absent from practice on Thursday.
Mixon missed Wednesday’s practice as well, so this really isn’t looking good for his playing status in Week 11 against Washington. If Mixon can’t log at least a limited practice session on Friday, it’ll once again be the Giovani Bernard show on Sunday. Note, it’s also Bernard’s birthday on Sunday, November 22.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) did not participate in practice on Wednesday.
Head coach Zac Taylor called Mixon “day-to-day” earlier on Wednesday but a DNP to start the week isn’t ideal. If he ends up not playing again in Week 11, Giovani Bernard will once again shoulder the load for the Bengals against Washington.
