Bengals running back Joe Mixon missed a couple of games with a knee injury earlier this season and his practice was curtailed by a knee issue again on Thursday.

Mixon was not spotted on the field during the portion of practice open to the media and the reason for his absence was revealed when the team released the day’s injury report. Mixon, who was not on the report at all on Wednesday, was listed as limited.

The extent of his limitations aren’t clear, but Friday will bring another practice and any injury designation that the team may give him for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. Giovani Bernard and Mark Walton fill out the backfield behind Mixon.

There were two other changes from Wednesday on Thursday’s report. Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, who suffered a concussion last weekend, was limited after not practicing on Wednesday and tackle Jake Fisher didn’t practice for non-injury reasons.

  1. I guess Marvin will have to fire the training staff now and take that over as well. I can’t imagine how we’d get along without him.

  2. Can anyone on this team stay healthy! One of the most injury prone teams in the league this year, yet still above .500!
    Pittsburgh on the other hand has lost the least amount of games to injury this year….imagine if the roles were reversed!

    Mark Walton is not an NFL running back…..he’s overwelmed as soon as he gets the ball

    – gathered all that from his 18 career touches huh?… you should be a scout!

    I agree, but maybe if the Bengals OL weren’t so meh, he could be.

  5. Walton needs better blocking, better conditioning, or to be used in the screen game. He can’t power through a defensive line, but he’s got the ability to make guys miss downfield.

    My Ravens have been decimated the past couple years with injury. This year hasn’t been as bad, but we’ve still had starters missing multiple games.
