Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) was put through a workout Saturday, Oct. 9, and is trending toward playing 'in some capacity' in Week 5's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Huddle Up: Mixon had been listed as questionable on the injury report after not participating in any of the team's three practice sessions earlier in the week but this development is an encouraging sign. If he is active for the game, he should be a starting option in most fantasy leagues. Samaje Perine and Chris Evans would likely split time in the Cincinnati backfield if Mixon is unable to play and would be nothing more than flex options in deeper fantasy formats.
