Bengals' RB Joe Mixon, listed as questionable for Sunday with a sprained ankle, is planning to play vs. the 49ers but wants to test the injury in pregame warmups just to make sure first, per source. But going in, Mixon plans to play.

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

#Bengals RB Joe Mixon said his left ankle is feeling better. 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 celebrates Sooners reunion with Samaje Perine on Bengals

Not too long ago, the Oklahoma Sooners tandem of Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine terrorized NFL defenses together before they both headed to the pros.

Now they're both members of the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals added Perine via waivers after cutting the roster to 53 players, seeking depth in the wake of another Oklahoma product—Rodney Anderson— suffering an injury.

Perine says he's seen the very public campaign Mixon has put on for the Bengals to go get him after Washington waived him

Seems like I've seen that work out pretty well before

Joe Mixon says RB usage in offense is 'night and day from last year'

Cincinnati Bengals players aren't doing a great job of containing their excitement about the new offense as they prep for the training camp opener Saturday.

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.
