Bengals Head Coach Zac Taylor announced that starting running back Joe Mixon will not be activated for Week 14's game against Dallas.
Mixon is eligible to return this week but apparently is not ready yet. Given how his injury has progressed, it appears possible, if not likely, the Bengals have simply shut Mixon down for the season. Giovani Bernard will retain his role as Cincinnati's primary running back, but his usage and efficiency has dropped off in recent weeks. That being said, he gets a great matchup against the Cowboys in Week 14.
