Bengals RB Joe Mixon (calf) was not listed on the Week 16 final injury report for Cincinnati.
Mixon was added to the report Thursday with a limited practice but was a full participant Friday and there looks to be no issues with his calf. He is good to go for Sunday against the Dolphins. Mixon has been on a year as of late, coming off a 136-yard performance against the Patriots and now gets a Dolphins defense that has been generous to opposing running backs. After a slow first half, Mixon can be a championship winner Sunday.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (calf) was added to the injury report Thursday after taking limited practice reps. Mixon's calf issue is worth monitoring since it's a new injury and the Bengals face the Dolphins this week, meaning that Giovani Bernard would be in a smash spot if Mixon were unable to play. Owners (with or without Mixon) may want to add Bernard just in case.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was forthright about the team’s ineptitude running the football through eight games.
After having the best year of his career in 2018 and leading the AFC in rushing, Mixon and the Bengals have struggled mightily to run the football. Entering Week 10, Cincinnati continues to be the league’s worst rushing offense.
Mixon is getting 12.6 rushing attempts per game but only 3.2 yards per run the story said. The team wants to establish the run early but is often hurt by negative plays and penalties. The story said the team will look to use more 12 personal in the coming weeks to help with the running game, after having success in London against the Rams, running for 104 yards.
