Ian Rapoport reports that Bengals RB Joe Mixon‘s timetable for recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery is 2-4 weeks.
Adam Schefter reports that Bengals RB Joe Mixon has a small particle in his knee that was dislodged during Thursday night’s game and he is now scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday to remove the fragment.
According to Schefter, the procedure is expected to sideline Mixon for two weeks.
Mixon is reportedly getting a second opinion on his knee injury before deciding whether to undergo knee surgery.
Mixon described his knee injury as a “tweak.” However, it sounds like there’s enough of a concern that surgery is a serious consideration right now.
Mixon, 22, is a former second-round pick of the Bengals back in 2017. He’s currently second year of his four-year, $5.45-million contract and set to make base salaries of $712,735 and $960,470 over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Mixon has appeared in two games for the Bengals and rushed for 179 yards on 38 carries (4.7 YPC) to go along with six receptions for 57 yards receiving and one touchdown.
