Mixon left the Week 6 game with a foot injury, but later returned. He's out for Week 7


Mixon had another successful season in 2019 despite being on the league's worst team. He exceeded four yards per carry for the second season in a row, easing concerns about the low average he had as a rookie. Mixon also added 35 catches last year, demonstrating his ability to contribute on all three downs. Running back is one position where Cincinnati appears to have a plan, but Mixon enters 2020 underpaid compared to his usage and success. He'll surely angle for an extension this offseason and could end up holding out this summer. When he is on the field, Cincinnati wants him to be a three-down workhorse while Bernard spells him when needed, mostly on passing downs. (July 30)

Bengals | Cincinnati's Week 7 injury report (Fri Oct 23, 02:49 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals CB William Jackson III (concussion) and RB Joe Mixon (foot) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 7 versus the Cleveland Browns. WR John Ross (illness) was added to the injury report and did not practice Friday, Oct. 23; he is listed as questionable. S Shawn Williams (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is also listed as questionable. DT Geno Atkins (non-injury), LB Markus Bailey (neck), DE Khalid Kareem (illness), WR Auden Tate (shoulder) and CB Darius Phillips (illness) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report. DE Carlos Dunlap (non-injury) and WR A.J. Green (non-injury) were not given a practice designation Friday but are also expected to play.

Our View: Jackson is Cincinnati's best cover corner. His absence will help Odell Beckham, who beat him for a long touchdown in the first matchup and the refs miss a hold on another deep target when Beckham was breaking open.

Bengals | Joe Mixon out Week 7 (Fri Oct 23, 12:23 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) on Friday, Oct. 23, was ruled out of the Week 7 game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, head coach Zac Taylor said.

Our View: Giovani Bernard will get the start, but Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams could also figure into the mix. With a Week 9 bye, the Bengals could be inclined to let Mixon rest his foot for three weeks before playing on it again because he'll only miss two games.
