Bengals running back Joe Mixon was limited to six carries and two catches in Sunday’s 21-20 loss to the Seahawks because of an ankle injury that forced him out of the game early in the contest.

Initial word was that Mixon sprained his ankle and he went for further tests on the ankle Monday. The results reportedly brought back positive news about his condition.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the results were “all good” and Mixon has a shot to play against the 49ers in Week Two.

If Mixon can’t go, Giovani Bernard would move up to the top spot on the depth chart. Trayveon Williams and Samaje Perine are the other backs on the 53-man roster in Cincinnati.

  1. Glad to see nothing serious for Mix on.
    Bengals need learn how to win a game they pretty much dominated yesterday. Outgained Seattle by 200 yards. Fluke turnover, missed FG, slip by Boyd on what would have been a TD, and failed 4th and 1 did them in. Make no mistake though, this isn’t the 4 or 5 win team the “experts” want you to think they are.

  2. Good news for the Bengals. If the offensive line keeps playing like yesterday they will surprise some people

  3. Nice hopefully can carry over that attitude from last week into this weeks game vs the 9ers. It felt very refreshing not watching the same drawn out Marvin Lewis song and dance. Players are buying Taylor. He’s not going to be perfect there will be some growing pains but this team was beyond stale. I’m not expecting playoffs but if they can keep up that effort from Seattle 8-8 is not unrealistic and that should be considered a huge success with what the so called experts said going into it. They went 6-10 last season when literally the whole team got injured after starting 4-1.

  4. Good news for the Bengals. If the offensive line keeps playing like yesterday they will surprise some people,
    Good test against the Niners’ DL this coming Sunday.
