RB Joe Mixon and the Bengals have agreed to a 4-year extension that will keep him with the team for the next 5 seasons, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That removes any holdout worry as we head toward Week 1, so you should feel fine about drafting Mixon as you've planned. That could be anywhere from the 2nd half of Round 1 on, depending on your format.

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.

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.
