Bengals RB Joe Mixon suffers concussion, shoulder injury

Tuesday, December 5, 2017, 8:51am

Sports Illustrated - [Full Article]

Joe Mixon is out for the rest of Monday night’s game against the Steelers after suffering a concussion in the second quarter.

Mixon was injured when he was sandwiched between two Pittsburgh defenders. He laid motionless on the ground while the ESPN broadcast cut to commercial but was on his feet after the TV break. He initially went into the sideline medical tent but was then taken back to the locker room. The team said he was being evaluated for head and shoulder injuries.

Fantasy Impact:

Mixon may have a tough time getting back on the field for what is a short week for the Bengals with an early afternoon game against the Bears in Week 14. Bernard could very well be lined up for a huge workload in this game. Hill was recently signed off the Falcons practice squad and Jeremy Hill is on IR.

Scouting Report

Week 14 vs. Chicago Bears

With Joe Mixon out (concussion), Giovani Bernard takes over as the No. 1 running back in Cincinnati. He looked outstanding against the Steelers on Monday and appears to be fully recovered from last year's injury. He averaged almost 6 yards per carry and had 96 yards from scrimmage.

Bernard will face a Bears defense ranked fourth in aFPA to running backs. Even with a tough matchup, we expect him to see 20+ carries, so feel free to start him as a solid RB2.
