Bengals place Joe Mixon on IR

Bengals running back Joe Mixon will be missing at least three more games.

Mixon, who last played in Week Six, has been placed on injured reserve with a foot injury.

He has 428 yards rushing on 119 carries this season, and three touchdowns. He has 21 receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown.

Mixon signed a new contract not long before the start of the season. In hindsight, it was a smart move;  it would have become difficult for Mixon to get maximum value after what would have been the final year of his rookie contract.

Gio Bernard has been the primary beneficiary of Mixon’s absence. Bernard likely will continue to get the bulk of the touches.

  1. The fans in Cincinnati are quickly running out of patience for Zac Taylor and his crew. And with his abysmal history so far of dealing with injuries he needs to start being a lot more forthcoming on exactly what is going on with injured Bengal players. Either these players realize this team is going nowhere and they have a coach that will not question them or we just have in abysmal medical staff. Either way this injury situation is ridiculous

  2. Isn’t Mixon the dude that punched some gal in the face breaking many bones, in a restaurant in Oklahoma? And now everybody thinks he’s cool?????

    Yep, she hit him first, and may have spit on him. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    Really, it’s been a whole *one and a half seasons* under Taylor. Why hasn’t he taken the Bengals to a Super Bowl yet? How long does the team expect the fans to wait?!?

  5. they will never win with this staff. all of them but Darren Simmons needs to be put on the street, including Tobin.

  6. Who is really responsible for the Bengals dreadful drafting, with the exception of this year, especially in the first round? No other than Puke Tobin. Everyone wants to slam Mike Brown and believe me he deserves it but not all of it. Puke Tobin’s failure in successive drafts is why this team’s roster and depth is so far behind the Ravens and Steelers. They spent big dollars in Free Agency this year and have thus received a very poor return on their investment.

    Where is the accountability Mike Brown? Hire a real GM and cut loose the albatross that is Puke Tobin.

    What? Really? I shouldn’t even have to respond to this on a site that deals with mostly knowledgeable people. This isn’t Facebook or Instagram or Twitter. Nobody is expecting a super bowl but we are expecting is to see some sort of improvement every week and no major setbacks. That is not happening. Understand?

    They are not getting improved or even different players every week, so the opportunity for the team to get better is very limited. You should bear in mind the off record quote before the draft: Burrow will have struggles in the fall because the players he has around him at Cincy aren’t as good as those he had at LSU.

    He was at least twice her size yet he hit her like a dude. You don’t hit girls even if they hit you first. Be a man. It is pathetic that you posted this and worrisome that you received anything other than a thumbs down.

    I believe Mixon apologized for this and hopefully found it to be a learning experience. Time to move on from this..
