Summary

Bernard entered the 2017 offseason in a less secure position than he enters this year. He had a career-low 91 carries in 2016 due to an ACL tear that he was still rehabilitating into the summer. The team also brought back Jeremy Hill and drafted Joe Mixon. Bernard's Week 1 status was in doubt late into camp, though he was able to play. Later in the year, due to injuries, Bernard was the only man standing. In a Monday Night Football game against Pittsburgh, he rushed 13 times for 77 yards after Mixon had to leave early due to a concussion. He was over 5.5 yards per carry again the next week, adding six catches in the process. Then in Week 16, with Mixon hurt early in the game, Bernard rushed 23 times for 116 yards and a touchdown, while catching 7 balls for 52 yards as well. Despite Mixon's three-down skill set, Cincinnati will still use Bernard on third downs - both to keep Mixon fresh and also to get Bernard's speed and playmaking ability on the field. (May 6)
