Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (wrist) and wide receiver John Ross (knee) were both limited in practice on Wednesday. Both players should be able to play in Week 16 against the Bengals. With A.J. Green already on Injured Reserve and Tyler Boyd expected to miss the last two games, Mixon will have an even bigger role the rest of the way. He'll be a no-doubt RB1 against Cleveland this weekend if he plays, while Ross will essentially be the team's No. 1 receiver. However, Ross is more of a touchdown-dependent WR4/flex for the desperate.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (foot) is on the Week 14 injury report and was limited in practice on Wednesday. It's an injury that shouldn't keep him out against the Chargers, but it's worth watching. Mixon remains the team's clear lead back, but his carries have been down in recent weeks with the team falling behind early and often. He'll be more of an RB2 against LA if he's able to play this Sunday. If his injury ends up being serious enough to keep him out, Giovani Bernard would see the lion's share of touches.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon couldn't get it going against the Broncos on Sunday, finishing the day with only 82 yards on 12 attempts in addition to 13 yards on two receptions. It was the fourth week in a row that the sophomore wasn't able to eclipse the 100-yard mark and the second in a row of not finding the end zone. He will have an uphill battle ahead with the team struggling on the offensive side of the ball with some glimpses of hope upcoming against the Raiders and Browns in Weeks 15 and 16 respectively, two teams that have struggled against the run this season.
