Bengals RB Joe Mixon Expected To Miss 2-4 Weeks



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.

According to Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo, the Bengals fear RB Joe Mixon will need arthroscopic surgery to clean up the knee he injured during Thursday night’s game and will miss some time.

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.

Should Mixon end up missing time, the Bengals will likely turn to Giovani Bernard as their No. 1 running back with rookie Mark Walton being worked into the mix.

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.

We’ll have more regarding Mixon as the news is available.
