Gio Bernard out 2 - 4 weeks for the Bengals

Recommended Posts

Is Mixon definitely back this week?  Is there a possibility the Bengals will have to look to their 3rd back for this week?

Mixon should be back. But Walton has had some nice carries while he was out. We also have Thomas Rawls

2015 Thomas Rawls, or "every year since then" Thomas Rawls?

According to Marvin, he picked Rawls of all the RBs that tried out because he looked extremely motivated.  Most he's seen since we signed Cedric Benson.

For whatever that's worth...

"Doesn't matter" Rawls because Mixon got a full practice in today and will play.  Walton will back up, and Rawls will be inactive again.

Oh yeah, and start Mixon in all fantasy leagues.  Dude's about to get 20 carries and 8 targets.  He's electric when they throw him the ball.

Out of curiosity, should they try to ease Mixon back into action, what does Walton excel at?

I imagine they'll spell Mixon with a few carries and catches for Walton.  We haven't really seen enough of him to know what he excels at (5 carries, 4 catches).

My guess is that they just give Walton 1-2 drives (maybe once per half) to spell Mixon.  Not really target specific packages.  Just a guess though.
