Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) ran for 17 yards on 11 carries and added 10 yards on three catches in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: For those keeping score, Mixon has 27 yards on 17 attempts and 17 yards on five catches through two games. While he deserves credit for playing through a sprained ankle in this contest, the fact of the matter is the offensive line is not helping his cause. Expect more low-end RB2 production at best in Week 3 versus the Buffalo Bills.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Mixon is considered day-to-day, so he may be a game-time decision for Week 2. He will be a risky option if he plays but should be a starting player in all leagues. Giovani Bernard probably would be the starting running back if Mixon misses the game and can be a flex option.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) was diagnosed with an ankle sprain after an MRI came back 'all good,' according to a source. The team is reportedly optimistic there will not be an extended absence, and he may even have a shot to play in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Huddle Up: Mixon was held in check on nine touches before exiting in Week 1, and it may be the start of a long year for him behind an offensive line that figures to be among the league's worst. Giovani Bernard would likely serve as a featured back in Week 2 if Mixon sits and be a low-end RB2 in that matchup.
