  • Bernard rushed 12 times for 61 yards and a touchdown while adding five catches for 25 yards on nine targets in Sunday's 31-21 loss to Carolina. Bernard dominated the backfield touches with Joe Mixon (knee) out, as the only other Cincinnati carry was recorded by wide receiver Tyler Boyd. While Bernard moved the pile to cap his team's first drive with a one-yard touchdown, he wasn't as involved in the receiving game as his excellent pass-catching reputation would suggest. If Mixon's unable to suit up next week in Atlanta, Bernard would again have the team's running back snaps mostly to himself.

  • Bernard (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Though Bernard's knee injury limited his activity Wednesday, the issue was never viewed as a serious threat to sideline him Week 3 against the Panthers. With a full practice now under his belt, Bernard should be ready to handle a heavy workload as the team's starting running back Sunday with Joe Mixon (knee) unavailable for the contest. Neither of the two backup options on the roster, Mark Walton and Thomas Rawls, represent serious threats to poach significant snaps from Bernard while Mixon is out.

  • Bernard was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Assuming the issue that limited him is minor, Bernard is slated to head the Bengals' backfield Sunday against the Panthers, given that Joe Mixon (knee) has already been ruled out. Rookie Mark Walton and newcomer Thomas Rawls are behind Bernard on the depth chart, but neither player looks to be in line for ample work on offense.

  • Bernard is in line for added work in the next two weeks, with Adam Schefter of ESPN reporting that Bernard's teammate, Joe Mixon, is slated to have his knee scoped. Bernard merits an immediate pickup by those looking for short-term running back help and could end up being a nice DFS value play for Week 3 against Carolina. He piled up 208 rushing yards, 133 receiving yards (16 catches) and two TDs in a span of three games when Mixon was injured last December.

  • Bengals' Giovani Bernard: More action Week 2
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bernard was more active Week 2 than he was in the first week of the season, carrying the ball six times for 27 yards while hauling in four catches for 15 yards, on seven targets. Joe Mixon was nursing a sore knee and had to miss a couple of series. Plus, it appeared that the Bengals made more of an effort to keep Bernard involved. Mixon should be good to play Week 3, so this is the likely cap on Bernard's workload when Mixon is available.
