Denver Post - [Full Article]

The Bengals filled their need for a running back by signing Brian Hill off the Falcons practice squad Tuesday.

Hill was a fifth-round pick from Wyoming. He started the season on Atlanta’s 53-man roster and played one game on special teams before he was waived and signed to the practice squad.

The Bengals were down to running backs Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard after Jeremy Hill went on injured reserve over the weekend with an ankle injury that requires surgery.

Scouting Report

Week 11 at Denver Broncos

If the Bengals want Joe Mixon to be their No. 1 back, they need to get him more touches. He had only 10 touches last week after averaging 15 the previous two weeks. With Jeremy Hill out for the season, maybe Mixon will get some of those touches.

Mixon will face a tough Denver defense this week that's ranked fifth in aFPA to running backs. If he gets the touches, he will have enough numbers to rank him a solid RB2 for Week 11, so start Mixon in all leagues.
