Bengals RB Joe Mixon (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the 49ers. He didn’t practice all week, but Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported this morning that Mixon is a "full go" today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) is expected to play vs. the 49ers today. Higgins got in 2 limited practices this week after tweaking his ankle last Sunday. He comes with a bit more risk in Week 14 fantasy lineups but remains a WR2 with upside.

ESPN's Adam Schefter included Bengals RB Joe Mixon (illness) in his list of players "expected to play" on Sunday. Mixon missed practiced all week, but HC Zac Taylor said Friday that he expected Mixon to play. We'll see if we hear anything about Mixon's volume being scaled back vs. the 49ers. But, as of now, he should be in fantasy lineups.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the 49ers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, and HC Zac Taylor confirmed that Higgins is expected to play on Sunday. He can be penciled into fantasy lineups.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (finger) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He put in a limited practice on Thursday and was a full-go on Friday. He threw the ball well in practice according to the Cincinnati media in attendance. We’re not expecting Burrow’s injured pinky to be a problem in Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers.

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 Joe Mixon (illness) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. Players rarely miss games with non-COVID illnesses, so we're expecting Mixon to play vs. the 49ers on Sunday. But check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He should be available for this weekend's game vs. the 49ers, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (finger, knee) put in a limited practice on Thursday. He reportedly looked just fine throwing without any protection on that injured pinky, according to the media in attendance for the start of practice. Burrow is fully expected to start Sunday's game vs. the 49ers.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He got banged up in last week's game vs. the Chargers but was able to play through it. We're expecting him to be available for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow told reporters Wednesday that the pinky he injured in last week's loss to the Chargers is "feeling better." He added that he's dealing with a "little bit of swelling" and will be limited in Wednesday's practice. Burrow still expects to play vs. the 49ers on Sunday, but we'll keep a close eye on him over the next few days.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Bengals expect LB Logan Wilson to "miss an extended period of time" with the shoulder injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. According to Fowler, the team hopes it'll just be a game or 2, "but it's probably going to be longer than that." It sounds like Wilson will be droppable in tight-roster leagues. We'll see how Wilson progresses. Germaine Pratt should run as Cincinnati's lead LB in Wilson's absence. Joe Bachie filled in as the #2 vs. the Chargers.

Doctors have confirmed a dislocated right shoulder for Bengals LB Logan Wilson. HC Zac Taylor said Monday that Wilson will miss next Sunday's game against the 49ers, according to Adam Caplan. It's not yet clear how much time he'll miss beyond that. Germaine Pratt jumped to near-full playing time Sunday, in the game Wilson left. Joe Bachie also got in for 61% snap share, matching Pratt's 9 total tackles.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow dislocated his right pinky in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Chargers. He was in obvious discomfort but was able to play through the issue. Burrow said after the game that he doesn't expect to miss time going forward, but it'll be a situation to monitor leading into Sunday's game vs. the 49ers.

Bengals LB Logan Wilson left in the 1st half Sunday against the Chargers with a shoulder injury. Former NFL team doctor David Chao said it looked like a dislocated right shoulder. We'll see about the official diagnosis and how long Wilson might be out. The team has ruled him out for the rest of the game.

Falcons TE Hayden Hurst (ankle) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Patriots. Hurst has played 52% of Atlanta's offensive snaps this season but averaged just 2.8 targets per game, so there's not much fantasy impact here.

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.

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 expected to play vs. the Lions today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mixon got in just 2 limited practices this week and is listed as questionable. But HC Zac Taylor said Friday that Mixon is ready for a full workload. Consider him a risk/reward RB1 in Week 6 fantasy lineups.
