Head coach Zac Taylor says Joe Mixon is ready to go for Thursday after the running back missed much of the second half of Week 3 with an ankle issue.

Mixon was still in on 66% of the Bengals' offensive snaps, but his last touch came on the very last play of the third quarter. The rest could very well have been precautionary, as Cincinnati took over with 10:00 left in the fourth quarter and proceeded to run the ball 11 times in a row in order to use up the clock, up by 15 points. Mixon's Week 4 opponents, the Miami Dolphins, have been relatively stout against the run but also just allowed a 14-121-1 receiving line to Bills running backs in Week 3.
