Bengals HC Zac Taylor ruled RB Joe Mixon (foot) out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Taylor said there's a "possibility" Mixon plays again this season -- but fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on it. Gio Bernard gets another game as Cincinnati's lead back this weekend and creeps toward RB2 territory vs. a crumbling Dallas defense.

Bengals QB Brandon Allen was knocked out of Sunday’s game against the Dolphins in the 4th quarter with a chest injury. QB Ryan Finley mopped up, completing 6 of 7 passes for 40 yards and an INT. Continue to ignore this situation in fantasy.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd was ejected with about a minute left in the 1st half of Sunday's game against Miami after getting in a fight with CB Xavien Howard, who was also tossed. Boyd caught 1 of 4 targets before exiting -- but it went for a 72-yard TD. We don't expect Boyd to be suspended for Week 14.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow underwent what was deemed "successful surgery" on his left knee on Wednesday, according to a statement from the team. It's good news that Burrow was able to get repaired just 10 days after suffering the multi-ligament injury. He's still not a lock to be ready for the start of the 2021 campaign, but we'll keep you updated on his rehab progress.

Falcons TE Hayden Hurst (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Raiders. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so he obviously won't be at 100%. But Hurst might get a target boost with WR Julio Jones out.

Falcons TE Hayden Hurst (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Raiders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hurst managed only a limited Friday practice after sitting out the previous 2 days, so he'll present some risk even if active. Las Vegas also rates 9th in TE coverage, according to Football Outsiders. We'll confirm Hurst's status when the early-game inactives come out.

Falcons TE Hayden Hurst (ankle) is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so he obviously won't be at 100% if he suits up. We'll get Hurst's game status by noon ET on Sunday.

Falcons TE Hayden Hurst has missed the first 2 practices of the week with an ankle issue. We don't have any other details, but his availability for Sunday's game against the Raiders appears to be in doubt. Check back tomorrow for another update.

The Bengals will start QB Brandon Allen against the Giants this weekend, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Cincinnati has evidently seen enough of QB Ryan Finley, who struggled in 3 starts last year and in place of QB Joe Burrow last week. Allen has been with the Bengals since August, spending the first 11 weeks of the season on the practice squad. A 6th-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2016, Allen's only 3 NFL starts came with the Broncos last year. He averaged 172 yards and 1 TD per game on a 46% completion rate and 6.1 yards per attempt. Cincinnati's offense is in serious trouble.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee in Sunday's loss to Washington. ESPN's Adam Schefter and Ben Baby add that he also suffered "other structural damage." We'll have to see about the recovery timeline for this. There's a chance it challenges Burrow's start to 2021. At the least, it seems almost certain to cut way into his on-field prep time for his 2nd season. Burrow's absence the rest of this year pushes Ryan Finley into the starting lineup and clearly downgrades the fantasy outlooks for Bengals WRs.

The "initial diagnosis" on Bengals QB Joe Burrow's left knee is a torn ACL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "There may be additional damage," Rapoport adds. Burrow has already tweeted that he's done for the season. We'll look for another update on the final damage and exactly how long Burrow will be sidelined. He might not be a lock for the start of the 2021 campaign. QB Ryan Finley will step in for Burrow the rest of the way -- a huge downgrade for the offense.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow suffered a left leg injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Washington. He got high-lowed and bent awkwardly. Burrow was in obvious pain and carted off the field. This looks like a significant injury. QB Ryan Finley has replaced Burrow.

Update: Burrow is officially done for the day with a left knee injury, the team announced. Burrow later tweeted, "See ya next year." So it sounds like at least an ACL tear. We'll see about the official diagnosis.

2:11pm EST 11/21/20

The Bengals have placed RB Joe Mixon on IR with his foot injury. He actually returned to the game after suffering the injury back in Week 6 -- and will now end up missing at least 6 games with it. Strange. The earliest Mixon is now eligible to play is Week 14. We'd try to keep him stashed on fantasy rosters, but it'll be Gio Bernard as lead back for at least the next 3 games vs. Washington, the Giants and Dolphins.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) is out for Sunday’s game against Washington. He remained sidelined at practice all week and has no timetable for return. Gio Bernard gets another game as Cincinnati’s lead back on Sunday. He saw another 7 targets last week but handled just 8 of the Bengals’ 20 RB carries.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) remained sidelined on Thursday. It's looking like he'll miss another game. Look for Gio Bernard to serve as Cincinnati's lead back vs. Washington this weekend.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That's not a good start for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. Washington. RB Gio Bernard saw 7 targets in Mixon's absence last week but handled just 8 of 20 RB carries.

Steelers slot CB Mike Hilton (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Bengals. That improves the matchup for Cincinnati slot WR Tyler Boyd.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He reportedly has a shot to return for next weekend's game vs. Washington. Gio Bernard gets at least 1 more game as Cincinnati's lead back.

The Bengals have activated DE Sam Hubbard from IR. Hubbard missed the past 3 games with an elbow injury but should be ready for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Hubbard belongs in IDP lineups most weeks when healthy, though this isn't a great matchup.

Steelers slot CB Mike Hilton is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals with the shoulder injury that has cost him the past 3 games. Hilton seemed on track for a return this week when he put in a full Wednesday practice. But then he turned up limited Thursday and Friday. We'll check his status Sunday, but prepare as though you won't have Hilton available for your IDP lineup. His absence would help Bengals primary slot WR Tyler Boyd.
