Bengals' Joe Mixon: Ruled out for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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' Joe Mixon: Won't play in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: No changes to designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Not ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Not ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Aiming to return Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Won't return this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Not spotted at practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Idle for another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Considered doubtful for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

November 12, 2020 02:12 PM
Bengals' Joe Mixon: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

November 11, 2020 02:44 PM
Bengals' Joe Mixon: Works on the side at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: No team drills yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mixon (foot) won't participate in team drills in Wednesday's practice, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

The report notes that coach Zac Taylor has been encouraged by the running back's progress, with Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site suggesting that Mixon could return to action as soon as Sunday against the Steelers. Mixon hasn't played since Week 6 due to the right foot injury.

Bengals' Joe Mixon: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Mixon now will miss back-to-back contests due to a right foot injury suffered Week 6. With a Week 9 bye on tap, he'll aim to return Sunday, Nov. 15 at Pittsburgh, but in the meantime Giovani Bernard will lead the Bengals backfield.

October 30, 2020 05:44 PM
Bengals' Joe Mixon: Not likely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Zac Taylor acknowledged Friday that "it doesn't look good" for Mixon (foot) in terms of the running back playing Sunday against the Titans, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

There's a pretty solid chance that Mixon will be officially ruled out later Friday, and if that's the case, Giovani Bernard will once again lead the Bengals backfield Week 8.

October 30, 2020 01:52 PM
Bengals' Joe Mixon: Not practicing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. Mixon appears poised to miss his second straight contest, and his status will be confirmed when Cincinnati releases its injury report later Friday. Assuming he's unavailable, Giovani Bernard is in line to lead the Bengals backfield again Sunday versus the Titans.

October 29, 2020 02:20 PM
Bengals' Joe Mixon: Not present for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mixon (foot) won't participate in Thursday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

After he was sidelined for the first time all season in last week's 37-34 loss to the Browns, Mixon hasn't created much optimism about his chances of returning to action Sunday against the Titans. With Mixon absent from practice for the second day in a row, he may need to get back on the field in at least a limited capacity Friday just to carry a questionable designation into the weekend. If Mixon is inactive for a second straight game, Giovani Bernard would be in store for another turn as Cincinnati's lead back.
