Shark Bites

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He can’t be trusted in Week 7 fantasy lineups, but his return is good news for QB Andy Dalton, who’s already in a good spot against a leaky Chiefs defense.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs. Joe Mixon will again be in a workhorse role, with Mark Walton as the #2 RB.

Bengals LB Nick Vigil suffered a left MCL sprain in the 1st quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers and is expected to miss the next month, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. LB Vontaze Burfict saw a spike in playing time -- from 53.1% to 83.6% -- and Vincent Rey stepped in to play 64% of the snaps after Vigil left. He's the best bet to start in Vigil's spot over the next few games.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Steelers. A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd will continue to dominate targets.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. He shouldn’t be in Week 6 fantasy lineups, but his return would be good news for QB Andy Dalton.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That strengthens the case for TE C.J. Uzomah as a Week 6 spot starter. He played 92% of the offensive snaps last week and ran a route on 28 of QB Andy Dalton’s 32 dropbacks. Pittsburgh has allowed the most receptions, 2nd most yards and 3rd most TDs to TEs.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That'll again put Joe Mixon in a workhorse role. He played 78% of the offensive snaps and racked up 25 touches last week.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft missed Wednesday's practice with the foot injury he suffered last weekend. His absence this Sunday would make TE C.J. Uzomah a safer spot-start play against the Steelers' 31st-ranked TE defense.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft injured his right foot in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is officially questionable to return. Cincinnati, of course, is already without TE Tyler Eifert. It leaves TE C.J. Uzomah as the clear lead dog.

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 Gio Bernard is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with a sprained MCL, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's at least good timing for Cincinnati with RB Joe Mixon ready to return from his own knee issue. Rookie Mark Walton will serve as the #2 RB while Bernard is sidelined.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Josh Malone will step in as Cincinnati's #3 WR but isn't a fantasy option. A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon figure to dominate targets.

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 WR John Ross (groin) was held out of Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of playing against the Dolphins this weekend. Ross' absence would leave Josh Malone as Cincinnati's #3 WR -- and push more targets toward A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd.

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 TE Tyler Eifert fractured his right ankle in Sunday's win over the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Eifert is expected to have surgery and will miss the rest of the season. C.J. Uzomah already leads Cincinnati TEs in snaps. He and Tyler Kroft will both enter the fantasy radar going forward.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert appeared to dislocate his right ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Falcons. He's obviously done for the day -- and this could be a season-ender.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (pelvis) is not listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after being limited Wednesday. Green is safe to get into fantasy lineups in what should be a shootout in Atlanta.
