Mixon (ankle) is participating at practice Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Mixon sat out Thursday's practice to help manage his ankle issue after working as a limited participant Wednesday, and he's returned to the field for Friday's session. The 25-year-old played only 28 percent of the offensive snaps during last week's loss to the Packers, while Samaje Perine -- who had 15 touches for 83 yards and a touchdown -- tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. Mixon appears to be trending in the right direction for Sunday's game at Detroit, while rookie Chris Evans is currently the only fully healthy tailback on the Bengals' active roster.
