Bengals coach Zac Taylor said Mixon (foot) is healthy and feeling good, NFL.com reports.
Mixon missed the final 10 games of the regular season but never ended up needing surgery. His foot apparently got better with rest, so he should be ready to practice whenever the Bengals first take the field. There's been talk of Giovani Bernard being traded or released, which could in turn free up more passing-down snaps and targets for Mixon, a capable pass catcher in his own right.
Mixon (foot) will not suit up against the Ravens in Week 17, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.
Mixon won't return from IR for Sunday's game against the Ravens, priming Giovani Bernard for another start while Samaje Perine works behind him. The 24-year-old hasn't played since Week 6. Mixon concludes the 2020 campaign with 428 rushing yards (3.6 YPC) and three scores across six contests. He also secured 21 of 26 targets for 138 yards and another touchdown.
Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that Mixon (foot) won't play Sunday against the Texans, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
Beyond that, Taylor noted "we'll see about next week" with regard to the possibility of the running back returning for the Bengals' Jan. 3 season finale versus the Ravens. In Mixon's ongoing absence, Giovani Bernard, will continue to head the team's backfield, with Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams on hand to work in complementary roles.
Coach Zac Taylor said Saturday that Mixon (foot) has not had any changes to his injury designation, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
Taylor declined to reveal whether Mixon has sought a second opinion on his injury, but he at least affirmed that the 24-year-old will not require surgery. Mixon is set to miss his eighth straight contest due to his lingering foot issue, and while it still appears as though he could still come off IR before the end of the season, the Bengals haven't offered anything resembling an official timetable for his return. Giovani Bernard, Trayveon Williams and Samaje Perine will continue to work out of the backfield in the meantime.
Mixon (foot) won't be activated for Monday night's game against the Steelers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
The report notes that Mixon could still return before the close of the season, but this week some combo of Giovani Bernard, Trayveon Williams and Samaje Perine will handle the Bengals' rushing duties versus Pittsburgh.
Mixon (foot) won't return to practice this week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
The Bengals had some hope that Mixon might be designated to return from injured reserve, but that will be put on hold for at least another week. Though the running back won't suit up in Week 14, the Bengals aren't ruling out a Mixon return before the end of the season. In Mixon's continued absence, Giovani Bernard and Samaje Perine will head the team's backfield.
The Bengals believe Mixon (foot) will be ready to return from IR in Week 14 against the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Mixon needs to be at 100 percent before returning to the field, and the team hopes a three-week stint on injured reserve will make that a reality. The team's playoff hopes look grimmer every week, so while there isn't a rush to get Mixon back, he is expected to return by the end of the season. In the meantime, Giovani Bernard is expected to head the backfield while Samaje Perine rotates in.
Mixon (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
This lingering foot injury has already caused Mixon to miss three straight games, and he didn't practice at all during that stretch. Now, he'll be shut down for at least three more games, and he won't be available until Week 14 against the Cowboys at the earliest. Giovani Bernard is expected to lead the backfield moving forward, with Samaje Perine rotating in.
Coach Zac Taylor said Friday that Mixon (foot) won't play Sunday against Washington, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
With Mixon -- who last played Oct. 18 -- still sidelined, Giovani Bernard and Samaje Perine are in line to head the Bengals' rushing attack in Week 11. Taylor suggested he wouldn't make any predictions on Mixon's timeline to rejoin the lineup, so the running back looks like he could be at risk of missing a fifth straight game Week 12 versus the Giants.
Mixon (foot) wasn't spotted during the open portion of Friday's practice, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
With that, Mixon doesn't seem likely to suit up Sunday against Washington, though his status won't be officially known until the Bengals release their final Week 11 injury report later Friday. In any case, Giovani Bernard looks set to handle a three-down role this weekend, with Samaje Perine expected to serve as his top backup.
Mixon (foot) won't practice Thursday, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Considering Mixon hasn't even been able to resume practicing on a limited basis since picking up the injury in an Oct. 18 loss to the Colts, he's seemingly trending toward missing his fourth straight game this Sunday in Washington. Before ruling on his status for the weekend, the Bengals will wait and see if Mixon is able to fit in any on-field activity at Friday's practice. Giovani Bernard would be in line for another start if Mixon ends up being ruled out for Week 11.
Mixon (foot) isn't participating in Wednesday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Prior to the session, coach Zac Taylor labeled Mixon as "day-to-day" and said he'll be monitored in practice throughout week, according to John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer. The 24-year-old isn't off to a great start in his effort to return from the lineup Sunday against Washington, as he still has yet to resume practicing in any capacity since suffering the right foot injury Week 6. Unless Mixon able to take a tangible step forward Thursday and/or Friday, Giovani Bernard looks poised for another turn as Cincinnati's lead back.
Mixon (foot) was officially ruled out ahead of Sunday's contest against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The only thing surprising about this designation is that it didn't come sooner considering Mixon was unable to practice all week. Giovani Bernard will once again get the start in a difficult matchup with Samaje Perine expected to aid as a complementary piece.
Mixon (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
With Mixon likely to miss Sunday's contest, Giovani Bernard is in line to head the Bengals' Week 10 rushing attack, with Samaje Perine on hand to work in a complementary role.
Mixon (foot) is not participating in Thursday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Despite having just had a bye week to get extra rest, Mixon still hasn't been deemed fit to resume handling even limited practice reps. A right foot injury has kept Mixon from playing since Week 6, and unless he's able to take a significant step forward Friday, it looks like Giovani Bernard could be in line to draw another start against Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Mixon (foot) was spotted rehabbing on a side field at Wednesday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
Mixon isn't ready to resume participating in team drills, but it's at least encouraging to see that he's handling rehab work. Ben Baby of ESPN.com noted that coach Zac Taylor has been heartened by the running back's progress, but Mixon will still likely need to upgrade his practice activity over the next two days to have a shot at playing Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Mixon (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Mixon (foot) won't participate at Friday's practice, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 24-year-old is trending in the wrong direction, as he was unable to practice in any capacity this week.

Assuming he's unavailable, Giovani Bernard is in line to lead the Bengals backfield again Sunday versus the Titans.
