Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot for this weekend's game vs. the Titans. Look for Gio Bernard to again serve as Cincinnati's lead back.

Steelers CB Mike Hilton missed Wednesday's practice with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of Week 7 early. We'll see if he can make it back onto the field this week, but make sure you have an alternate DB plan for Week 8.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) remained sidelined on Wednesday. He's "week to week," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, so owners shouldn't be banking on him returning for Sunday's game against the Titans. That'd mean another game as lead back for Gio Bernard.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon is considered "week to week" with his foot injury and is uncertain for next week's game vs. the Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll keep an eye on Mixon's progress this coming week -- and what Cincinnati's backfield looks like today without Mixon.

The Steelers have ruled CB Mike Hilton (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Titans. That leaves Pittsburgh without its slot corner and a productive pass rusher so far this season. Cameron Sutton is the next CB up.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns. It's a surprise after he was able to play through the foot injury last week. HC Zac Taylor called Mixon "day to day" earlier this week, so we're not expecting this to be an extended absence. Gio Bernard now figures to serve as Cincinnati's lead back vs. Cleveland on Sunday. In the 2 games Mixon missed back in 2018, Bernard tallied 27 carries, 13 targets and 3 TDs. He scored19.6 and then 25.6 PPR points. Bernard is 28 now and has struggled to just 3.3 yards per carry over the past 2 seasons, so don't expect a highly efficient outing this weekend. But volume puts him in the low-end RB2 mix. Bernard will be backed up by Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) missed practice again on Thursday. We're still expecting him to play against the Browns on Sunday after he played through this injury last week, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. He briefly exited last week's game with this injury but eventually returned. We're expecting him to be fine for Sunday's game against the Browns, although it wouldn't be a bad idea to stash RB Gio Bernard just in case.

The Bengals placed DE Sam Hubbard on IR with his left elbow injury ahead of Sunday's loss to the Colts. That means Hubbard will also miss at least weeks 7 and 8. He'll be eligible to return after the Week 9 bye, though, if that elbow is ready. Cincinnati still played DE Carlos Dunlap for a season-low 44% of the snaps against Indy, even with Hubbard out. Dunlap isn't much of an IDP option at his current usage.

Steelers CB Mike Hilton left Sunday's win over the Browns early with a shoulder injury. He's headed for further evaluation this week, so we'll see about his outlook. Hilton has been a top-shelf fantasy producer among DBs so far this season.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon suffered a right foot injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Colts. He's officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one. Mixon's absence leaves Gio Bernard as Cincinnati's lead back.

Update: Mixon returned at the start of the 2nd half.

Bengals DE Sam Hubbard left Sunday's loss to the Ravens with a left elbow injury. HC Zac Taylor told reporters Monday that Hubbard won't play in Week 6 and could miss multiple games. That likely gives slight playing-time boosts to DEs Carl Lawson and Carlos Dunlap. Rookie Khalid Kareem was the 4th DE in against Baltimore and could see the largest boost. None makes for a strong option this week against a tough Colts O-line.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (chest) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. We’ve heard nothing about him being limited, so Mixon should be locked into fantasy lineups.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (chest) is expected to play against the Jaguars today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mixon was surprisingly added to the injury report on Saturday, but we've yet to hear any real concern about his status. Keep him penciled into fantasy lineups.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Tyler Dragon tweets that the "belief" is that Bengals RB Joe Mixon (chest) will play against the Jaguars tomorrow. The team also didn't promote a RB from the practice squad, which is another hint that Mixon is on track to suit up. We'll find out for sure by noon ET tomorrow.

The Bengals have added RB Joe Mixon to the injury report with a chest issue and list him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. We'll check his status Sunday morning. In the meantime, Gio Bernard should find a roster in pretty much any fantasy football league of 10+ teams.
