Most Recent Shark Bites

Bengals RB Joe Mixon was added to the COVID list on Wednesday. The timing here means that he can't be cleared in time for Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Browns. Mixon should be back for the opening round of the playoffs. His absence this weekend will leave Samaje Perine as Cincinnati's likely lead back and rookie Chris Evans in a change-of-pace, pass-catching role. RB Trayveon Williams is also on the active roster.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon injured his left ankle late in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He never re-entered but was at least trying to keep the ankle loose by jogging on the sidelines. That at least suggests that this isn't a serious injury, but we should learn more on Monday. Samaje Perine will step in as Cincinnati's lead back if Mixon misses times.

The Bengals list RB Joe Mixon as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers. He missed practice all week with an illness. Mixon was at least watching on the sidelines on Friday, and HC Zac Taylor said afterward that he expects Mixon to play. We’ll continue looking for updates on his status. 49ers-Bengals doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday. Samaje Perine would be Cincinnati's lead back if Mixon is out this week.

Bengals RB Chris Evans (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Jets. Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine will handle all of Cincinnati's backfield work.

Bengals RB Samaje Perine has been activated from the COVID list. He'll be back for Sunday's game against the Ravens to give lead back Joe Mixon a few breathers.

11:30am EDT 10/17/21

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He was listed as questionable after getting in only 2 limited practices this week. But HC Zac Taylor said Friday morning that Mixon “should get a full workload” vs. Detroit. RB Samaje Perine (COVID) is out, which can’t hurt Mixon’s volume. Consider him a risk/reward RB1 today.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions after getting in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday. That’s not a great look, but HC Zac Taylor said Friday morning that Mixon “should get a full workload” this weekend. RB Samaje Perine remains on the COVID list as of Friday afternoon, leaving RBs Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams behind Mixon on the depth chart.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. He either suffered a setback with that ankle or got the day off. Tomorrow's practice participation and final injury report will tell the story. With RB Samaje Perine still on the COVID list, rookie Chris Evans could be left as the lead back for Sunday's game vs. the Lions.

The Bengals have placed RB Samaje Perine on the COVID list. His specific status isn't yet clear, but he at least looks very iffy for Week 6. Perine isn't much of a standalone fantasy option when Joe Mixon is healthy, but he did eat up 11 carries (for 59 yards) and catch 4 balls for 24 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Perine played more than 3 times as many snaps as Mixon in that game and beat him in rushing attempts and targets. As long as Mixon avoids any setback with his sprained ankle, we'd assume more work for the starter in this Sunday's visit to Detroit. If Perine is out, then Chris Evans should see some involvment. We wouldn't expect him to be an option for fantasy football lineups, though.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Packers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport confirms that Mixon "won't be 100%" but doesn't say whether he'll be on any type of snap or touch count. We're expecting Mixon to be limited to some extent and would try to avoid Cincinnati's backfield in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is trending toward playing "in some capacity" vs. the Packers tomorrow. His Saturday morning workout evidently went well. Of course, the report makes it sound like Mixon will be limited to some extent. The exact extent is unclear, leaving fantasy owners in a tough spot. We'll look for further updates on the situation, but Mixon is still better off on fantasy benches right now. Same goes for RB Samaje Perine unless Mixon ends up inactive tomorrow.

The Bengals list RB Joe Mixon (ankle) as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Packers. He didn't practice all week, but HC Zac Taylor said they'll test that ankle on Saturday. We'll look for further updates and will get Mixon's game status by noon ET on Sunday. He'll obviously carry elevated risk if he ends up active. If not, look for RB Samaje Perine to lead a committee attack ahead of RB Chris Evans.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. At this point, he seems unlikely to play vs. the Packers this weekend. HC Bill Callahan said it'll be a "committee" approach with RBs Samaje Perine and Chris Evans if Mixon is out. We're expecting Perine to handle most of the rushing work, with Evans entering in passing situations.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Zac Taylor insists Mixon's injury isn't serious, but he still looks iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Packers. Mixon's absence would leave Samaje Perine as Cincinnati's lead back.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor labeled RB Joe Mixon (ankle) "more day to day" (than week to week) and said he'll be limited in practice to open the week. Taylor continues to be more optimistic on Mixon's injury than reports from the national media. We'll keep a close eye on Mixon's practice participation this week. Backup RB Samaje Perine remains worth stashing on fantasy rosters in the meantime.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bengals RB Joe Mixon is "week to week" with a "low-grade" ankle sprain. HC Zac Taylor said Friday that Mixon has "a chance" to play vs. the Packers this weekend, but this report has us less optimistic. Samaje Perine will step in as Cincinnati's lead back if Mixon misses time, with rookie Chris Evans in a change-of-pace role.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon was knocked out late in Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars with an ankle injury. HC Zac Taylor called it "minor" after the win. Mixon has 10 days to get ready for Cincinnati's Week 5 game vs. the Packers. We'll monitor his status next week. If Mixon misses time, it'd likely be Samaje Perine as the Bengals' lead back, with Chris Evans mixing in on passing downs.

The Bengals released RB Gio Bernard, saving $4.2 million against the 2021 salary cap. Bernard has been a thorn in RB Joe Mixon's side, averaging 3.5 targets and 2.6 catches per game over the past 4 season. Cincinnati now has only Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams behind Mixon on the depth chart. We'll see if they make any additions, but Mixon should be in for more work in the passing game this season. The 29-year-old Bernard, meanwhile, is unlikely to be a 2021 fantasy factor.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard missed Wednesday's practice with a concussion. It's the first we've heard of it and has his availability for Sunday's game against the Giants in question. Bernard's absence would leave Cincinnati's backfield to Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams.
