Bengals' Joe Mixon: Undergoes successful surgery
Mixon (knee) underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Saturday and is expected to be sidelined for 2-4 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The extra time between games will benefit Mixon's recovery timeframe, but he is still likely to miss at least one game. The second-year running back was clearly playing through pain in the second half of Thursday's 34-23 victory over the Ravens, so he and the Bengals opted for the surgery route in order to get ahead of the curve and avoid a lingering issue. Giovani Bernard figures to be primed for a large workload in the immediate future while MIxon is sidelined.
