RB - CIN
When asked about the Bengals’ plan for which tailback to use on third-downs, offensive coordinator Brian Callahan responded that he doesn’t want RB Joe Mixon to leave the field.
“I think he’s up for that challenge,” said Callahan when talking about Mixon being used on third-downs this season. After an up-and-down 2020 season, it’s sounding like Mixon is going to be utilized as a true workhorse back in Cincinnati. With Joe Burrow slated to start Week 1, Mixon certainly has the skill set and opportunity to be a top-10 back in 2021.
Bengals coach Zac Taylor says RB Joe Mixon (foot) is healthy and "feels really good right now."
Mixon missed the final 10 games of 2020 with the foot injury. It continuously seemed as if he would return, but it never happened. The star RB was a lot more involved in the passing game before going down last season, which is a great sign for his fantasy prospects moving forward. A healthy Joe Burrow should only improve the entire Cincinnati offense in 2021.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) is officially out for the season, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Mixon (foot) will not play in Week 17’s matchup against the Ravens and was officially ruled out for the season. He hasn’t played since Week 6’s loss to the Colts. Mixon finished the 2020 campaign with 428 rushing yards along with 21 receptions for 138 receiving yards and four total touchdowns. The Bengals will once again rely on Giovani Bernard and Samaje Perine to handle RB duties in Week 17.
According to head coach Zac Taylor, Cincinnati Bengals superstar running back Joe Mixon will not play Week 16 against the Houston Texans.
It is unclear why Cincinnati has not ruled Mixon out for the season if they already know he will not play this week, but here we are. Zac Taylor replied 'check back next week' when asked about Mixon's Week 16 status. 2020 has turned into a lost season for the promising running back. He will likely get RB1 treatment in drafts next year, but the Bengals will need to upgrade their offensive line if they want him to realize his potential.
When asked about the status of Joe Mixon, head coach Zac Taylor said “Check back next week.” It’s safe to assume that he will not play this week against Pittsburgh.
What originally started as a “minor” injury has now kept Mixon sidelined for eight weeks, not including this Sunday’s matchup. There is a very slim chance that he’s able to return to action this season.
