Mixon (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Mixon, who practiced in a limited fashion Friday, continues to manage an ankle issue, but he'll be available Sunday, with Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site having previously noted that the team's top running back, who was limited to 10 carries in Week 5, is expected to get closer to his normal workload this time around. With Samaje Perine - who logged 11 carries last weekend - on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams are on hand to work in complementary roles behind Mixon versus the 0-5 Lions, who have allowed an average of 130.2 rushing yards per game to date.
