Joe Mixon (ankle) questionable for Week 2
Joe Mixon (ankle) is questionable for the Bengals' Week 2 matchup against the 49ers.
The good news is that Mixon returned to practice Friday. He's dealing with a low-grade sprain, but clearly the Bengals' featured back is operating at less than 100%. We tentatively expect Mixon to suit up Sunday, although it'd be unwise to assume he reaches 20-plus touches and has his usual role. Giovani Bernard would be in play as a rock-solid RB2 if Mixon is ultimately sidelined. Gio would be a thin flex option at best with Mixon in the lineup.

He's hopeful that he'll play on Sunday but doesn't know as of yet
Could play in Week 2
MRI results on Mixon's ankle came back "all good" and the running back may have a shot to play Sunday against the 49ers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
In any case, Mixon is not expected to require an extended absence. If he ends up out, or limited in Week 2, however, Giovani Bernard would be in line to see added work, with Samaje Perine on hand as well.

Joe Mixon says RB usage in offense is 'night and day from last year'
Some, for example, have stressed the new offense should especially give other AFC North teams problems.
Others, like Joe Mixon, say the involvement of the running backs is a nice change, per Fox 19's Jeremy Rauch: "Hell yeah. I can't wait. Night and day from last year."
The team's official website added more from Mixon: "Coach Taylor, he's got it where it's going to be a nightmare for the defense. I look forward to it. Everybody has to take it upon themselves to be the best of them in this offense you can count on the people and leaders out there to deliver.
