Shark Bites

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. HC Zac Taylor said earlier this week that Mixon might not practice at all, so this doesn't exactly tell us much about his Week 2 availability. But it'd sure be nice to see him get back on the field tomorrow. Check back then for another update -- and make sure RB Gio Bernard is rostered in your league.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's his first full practice since going down in Week 11 and puts him on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Browns.

Bengals HC Zay Taylor said Monday that RB Joe Mixon (concussion) was held out of the Chiefs game for "precautionary reasons." He added that Mixon could clear concussion protocol early this week. There's a good chance that Mixon is back for Sunday's game vs. the Browns, but nothing's definitive until he gets full clearance.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. With Mixon out last week, RB Samaje Perine played 80% of Cincinnati’s offensive snaps and handled 17 carries and 7 targets. He’s a legit RB1 in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Dan Graziano hears that Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is "highly unlikely" to play vs. the Chiefs later today. "They haven’t officially ruled him out yet," Graziano adds. But
"something would have to change last minute." We won't get Cincinnati's inactives until 3 pm ET, but Mixon should be on fantasy benches right now. Samaje Perine is a fantasy RB1 if Mixon is out.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon still hadn't cleared concussion protocol as of late Saturday night and is a "long shot" to play vs. the Chiefs today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. ESPN's Adam Schefter isn't quite as pessimistic on Mixon's chances but confirms that he's still in the protocol. There's evidently a chance that he's cleared this morning, but fantasy owners should plan on being without him for now. Mixon's absence would again leave RB Samaje Perine in a feature role. He racked up 17 carries and 7 targets last week. Check out the updated projections for Cincinnati's backfield.
