Summary

Much like backfield mate Jeremy Hill, Bernard's role in this offense is threatened by Cincinnati's draft selection of Joe Mixon. Bernard tore his ACL in Week 11 (November) but had disappointed until then. His usage in the offense seemed odd, as many projected that he would see more time in a more open offense, particularly with Tyler Eifert out for the first handful of games. The amount of usage he'll see this season depends on many factors, the most important of which is his health. Per a February report, he'll likely avoid the PUP list but could miss the first couple games as he rehabs his knee. (May 13)
