Mixon didn't participate in practice today and he also missed Wednesday's practice session. It's not looking good for him to play this week.
We've been bracing for a Mixon-less Week 14 and have ranked Giovani Bernard as the presumed Bengals starter. The matchup's not great, as the Bears are ranked fourth versus RBs according to our aFPA metric. However, the Bengals are pretty short-handed at RB. Bernard is a top-14 ranked back across the board and should be a serviceable RB2/FLEX play this week.
