Bengals RB Gio Bernard is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens after injuring his knee in the 1st half. Bernard has been playing quite a bit on passing downs this season, so his absence is a boost to RB Joe Mixon.

Update: Bernard returned in the 2nd half.

The Bengals and RB Gio Bernard have agreed to a 2-year, $10.3 million extension, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The deal locks him up through the 2021 campaign. And the $5.15 million per year makes Bernard the league's 11th highest-paid RB in average annual salary. It's a surprising chunk of change and might hint at Bernard playing a bigger role alongside Joe Mixon this season. We'll start to find out when the Bengals open their season in Seattle this weekend.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He’s not a recommended fantasy starter in his 1st action since Week 4.

After missing the past 4 games with an MCL sprain, Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is expected to play today against the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We wouldn't look to use him in fantasy lineups in the 1st game back, especially because Bernard's usage was limited to start the season, when Joe Mixon was also healthy. But we'll be interested to see how big a role Bernard plays. WR A.J. Green's absence leaves targets available.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) is listed as questionable but is expected to play against the Saints on Sunday. It’s possible he takes on an expanded role with WR A.J. Green out, but Bernard would be a fantasy flier in his 1st action since Week 4.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) participated in the team's post-bye week practice on Monday. That presumably puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Saints. Bernard isn't a standalone fantasy option but is worth stashing as a high-end handcuff to RB Joe Mixon.
