Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) is out for Sunday’s finale against the Steelers. John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson will again serve as Cincinnati’s top 3 WRs. None can be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. He hasn’t yet been placed on IR, so there’s evidently a chance he plays in the finale. Boyd’s absence this weekend leaves John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson as Cincinnati’s top 3 WRs. Ross is the best fantasy bet but is no better than a WR4 flier.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He hasn't been placed on IR, so there's evidently a chance he's able to play this week or next. But fantasy owners shouldn't bank on having him in Week 16 lineups.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd has been diagnosed with a "low-grade" MCL sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He could miss time, and with only two weeks left in the season, that could be it for 2018," Rapoport adds. Boyd's absence would leave John Ross and Cody Core as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Raiders with a right knee injury. He hauled in 4 balls for 38 yards and a score before exiting. We'll update Boyd's status when we learn more.

Browns DT Larry Ogunjobi (biceps) is active for today's game against the Panthers. Ogunjobi is just a low-level IDP candidate.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) isn’t listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. That foot shouldn’t be an issue, but a crumbling Bengals offense makes Mixon more of a RB2 in Sunday’s game against the Chargers.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Chargers, but he won't be at 100%. Mixon is more of a RB2 for Week 14.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon was limited in Wednesday's practice and listed with a foot issue. It's possible this is just a rest day, but it's worth noting that Mixon played a season-low 57% of the offensive snaps last week. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) is not listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. The knee isn't a real concern, but a tough matchup vs. the Ravens makes Mixon more of a low-end RB1 this week.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon was added to the injury report on Thursday as limited with a knee. We don't have any other details at this point, although it's certainly worth noting that Mixon missed 2 games earlier this season with a knee injury. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow. If Mixon can't play against the Ravens this weekend, Gio Bernard would step in as Cincinnati's lead back and be a viable fantasy starter.

The Bengals have ruled LBs Vontaze Burfict (hip) and Nick Vigil (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Saints. That makes a weak run defense even weaker and adds IDP upside to LBs Jordan Evans and Preston Brown.

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis doesn't expect to "fully unleash" RB Joe Mixon this weekend in his first game back from a knee injury. Lewis said there will be "some limits due to conditioning taking a hit during the rehab process." Mixon tallied 22 touches in both of his first 2 games this year. Perhaps he gets 15-18 against the Dolphins on Sunday, but Mixon remains a strong fantasy play.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) is not listed on the final injury report, so he’ll return for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins. Meanwhile, RB Gio Bernard (knee) has been ruled out. That should mean a heavy workload for Mixon, putting him right back in RB1 territory.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) was limited for the 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It sounds like he's trending toward returning for this weekend's game against the Dolphins, but we still haven't heard that he's received final clearance. Check back tomorrow for another update. RB Gio Bernard, meanwhile, has missed the first 2 practices of the week with a knee issue.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday -- his first since going down in Week 2. Mixon still hadn't received full clearance as of this morning, but it looks like he has a shot to get the green light by Sunday. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) said Wednesday morning that he still hasn't received full clearance. He added that he'll "for sure" be back for Week 6. HC Marvin Lewis seemed to suggest, though, that Mixon still has a shot to play against the Dolphins this Sunday. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his progress over the next few days.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. He didn’t practice at all this week but has reportedly resumed running and cutting. Mixon has a shot to be back for Week 5. Gio Bernard gets another game as Cincinnati’s feature back on Sunday and is a RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. There was some hope that he'd be back for this weekend's game against Atlanta, but that's looking unlikely. Gio Bernard will again serve as Cincinnati's feature back vs. a defense yielding massive pass-catching production to RBs.

Falcons FS Ricardo Allen tore his left Achilles' tendon in Sunday's loss to the Saints and will miss the rest of the season. That leaves Atlanta's defense without both of its starting safeties, after SS Keanu Neal suffered an ACL tear in Week 1. Jordan Richards played 32% of the snaps against New Orleans and looks like the next guy up. The Falcons also recently signed former Bucs S Keith Tandy and could shift Kemal Ishmael back from LB. We'll see about their plan over the coming week.
