Mixon was a surprise addition to the injury report on Thursday when he was limited in practice due to a knee injury, but the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Friday that Mixon “looks all systems go” for Sunday’s game at the Baltimore Ravens.
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, who is dealing with a toe injury that forced him to sit out last week’s lopsided loss against New Orleans, was listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game.
Green is not expected to play Sunday. He has 45 receptions and six touchdowns, including three scoring passes in the earlier matchup against Baltimore.
Thursday’s knee issue to Mixon appeared to be a setback for the second-year running back, who missed a pair of games earlier this season after undergoing a procedure to repair a slight meniscus tear in his right knee.
The team’s leading rusher with 570 yards and four touchdowns, Mixon is averaging 4.9 yards per carry and also has 21 catches and a receiving TD. He ran for a season-high 123 yards and two scores in a 37-34 win over Tampa Bay on Oct. 28.
Mixon rushed for 84 yards on 21 carries against the Ravens in Week 2 after opening the season with 95 yards and a touchdown on 17 rushes in a win at Indianapolis.
The 6-foot-1, 228-pound Mixon rushed for 626 yards and four touchdowns in addition to catching 30 passes for 287 yards as a rookie in 2017.
