Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon questionable; Kyle Rudolph doubtful

Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon questionable; Kyle Rudolph doubtful

Both the Bengals and Vikings will have key players sidelined for this matchup. The Bengals could be facing the same issues they had last week again on defense. Vontaze Burfict and Nick Vigil will miss Sunday’s game against the Vikings after being ruled out on Friday. The Bengals also placed Kevin Minter on Injured Reserve after suffering a hamstring injury. The team called up Brandon Bell from their practice squad to replace him on the active roster. This will leave the Bengals with only Vincent Rey, Jordan Evans and Hardy Nickerson at linebacker. Looking on the bright side, we at least...

Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon returns; Vontaze Burfict still out

Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon returns; Vontaze Burfict still out

The Bengals may have Joe Mixon in Minnesota, but don’t expect Vontaze Burfict to suit up. The Cincinnati Bengals may have Joe Mixon back for their matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. After missing Wednesday’s session, Mixon was able to return for a limited session on Thursday. He probably needs to get in a full session on Friday to have any chance of playing, even though Friday is more of a walkthrough. Darqueze Dennard was also able to return on Thursday for a limited session. His knee issue appears to be more a pain tolerance issue that the team is managing. Dennard has dealt with...

Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon and Vontaze Burfict still sidelined

The Bengals may be without their star rookie against a vaunted Vikings defense. The Cincinnati Bengals are getting healthier, but they’ve still got several guys sidelined ahead of their clash with the Minnesota Vikings. That includes three players who missed Week 13 with concussions, including Joe Mixon, Dre Kirkpatrick and Vontaze Burfict. That’s a good sign all three are very iffy for Sunday, as it appears they have not yet cleared the league’s concussion protocol. Also sitting out Wednesday were tight end Tyler Kroft (hand), linebacker Nick Vigil (ankle), cornerback Darqeuze...

Vince Williams makes fun of Joe Mixon having concussion

Vince Williams makes fun of Joe Mixon having concussion

Vince Williams adds to what’s already become the most venomous rivalry in the NFL. As if you needed any reminder that the Bengals - Steelers rivalry has gotten out of hand, it gets worse. When the two AFC North rivals faced off in Week 13, a host of players went down with significant injuries, including Joe Mixon. The rookie running back suffered a concussion late in the second quarter, which forced him to miss the rest of the game, as well as the Week 14 loss to the Bears. Concussions are a very sensitive subject in all sports, but don’t tell that to Vince Williams. The Steelers’...

Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Bears: Bench gets plenty of run

Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Bears: Bench gets plenty of run

With all the injuries the Bengals had coming into the game, the Bengals defense was forced to play a lot of players who don’t normally get extensive snaps. It was no secret the Cincinnati Bengals were shorthanded coming into their Week 14 matchup with the Chicago Bears. Several regular starters like Vontaze Burfict, Joe Mixon, Shawn Williams, Dre Kirkpatrick and Adam Jones were out for this game. This put a new meaning to the phrase “next man up.” While injuries do happen, it is hard for a team to go out there and essentially replace more than half of their defense, and we saw just...

Bears at Bengals injury report: Vontaze Burfict, Joe Mixon among 6 ruled out; Geno Atkins questionable

The Bengals will not have several key players on both sides of the ball this Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals will be down several starters when they host the Chicago Bears on Sunday. On Friday, Cincinnati ruled out Joe Mixon, Vontaze Burfict, Dre Kirkpatrick, Adam Jones, Shawn Williams and Nick Vigil. All of those players were expected to miss this game, especially the guys dealing with concussions suffered in Monday’s loss to the Steelers (Mixon, Burfict and Kirkpatrick). The Bengals are also listing Geno Atkins as questionable to play this week due to a toe injury that popped up in...

Bengals vs Bears 2017: Game time, TV schedule, online stream, odds, radio, announcers, more

How to watch the Bengals take on the Bears this Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals will be facing the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and their last thread of hope for the playoffs hang in the balance. The Bears have nothing left to play for at (3-9) other than pride and officially ending the Bengals season. The Bengals could be very short-handed on Sunday if players like Joe Mixon, Vontaze Burfict and Dre Kirkpatrick don’t progress through concussion protocol. Also, Adam Jones and Darqueze Dennard didn’t practice on Wednesday either. Shawn Williams also hasn’t returned to practice either....

Week 13 Bengals rookie report: Mixon exits early; Evans notches first start

Week 13 Bengals rookie report: Mixon exits early; Evans notches first start

A few Bengals rookies were involved in the many injuries that occurred on Monday night. In another bloodbath under the lights between the Steelers and Bengals, a number of Cincinnati players exited the game with injuries, leading to a blown-lead. One of those injuries was to the Bengals’ most played rookie, and another injury allowed a rookie to start his first game ever. Here’s our Bengals rookie report for the final installment of Bengals-Steelers in 2017: Active: Joe Mixon 17 snaps on offense Jordan Willis three snaps on defense; four snaps on special teams Carl Lawson 24 snaps...

Bears at Bengals injury report: Joe Mixon among 3 out with concussions

Bears at Bengals injury report: Joe Mixon among 3 out with concussions

The Bengals got hit hard by concussions in Monday’s loss to the Steelers. The Cincinnati Bengals had an eye-opening nine players miss practice Wednesday as they prepare to host the Chicago Bears. The most notable name out was John Ross, who has a shoulder injury that is unrelated to the one he had surgery on this offseason. However, the new shoulder issue will also require surgery, which is why Ross has since been placed on injured reserve. Among the other Bengals sitting out were Vontaze Burfict (concussion), Adam Jones (groin), Dre Kirkpatrick (concussion), Nick Vigil (ankle), Shawn...

NFL Week 13: Bengals come close but fall 23-20 to Steelers in injury-filled, hard-to-watch game

NFL Week 13: Bengals come close but fall 23-20 to Steelers in injury-filled, hard-to-watch game

Andy Dalton and A.J. Green connected for two touchdowns and Giovani Bernard came in to relieve Joe Mixon. But really, terrible injuries were the name of this unfortunate game. Another Bengals vs Steelers game got wildly out of hand on Monday Night Football. After having a strong lead for the entirety of the first half, the Bengals fell victim to injuries and dirty play from Pittsburgh as the Steelers fought back and won 23-20 at Paul Brown Stadium to sweep the Bengals once again. It was hard to watch and the Bengals will have a good deal of injured players heading into next week’s game...

Bengals robbed of TD by bad holding call on Giovani Bernard

Bengals robbed of TD by bad holding call on Giovani Bernard

Giovani Bernard was called for a very weak holding call that even the announces called “unbelievable.” The Bengals were robbed of a score that could have had a huge impact in their clash with the Steelers. With Joe Mixon leaving the game with a concussion, Giovani Bernard was the lone back the Bengals had to trust for the second half against Pittsburgh. Usually solid in pass blocking, Bernard was flagged on a pass that ended up in the hands of A.J. Green before being tossed into the stands as Green found his way to the end zone. But the score was removed from the board, as T.J. Watt...

Joe Mixon forced from Bengals vs Steelers game with head, shoulder injury

Joe Mixon forced from Bengals vs Steelers game with head, shoulder injury

Joe Mixon took a nasty shot to the head before exiting the game. The Cincinnati Bengals are holding their breath after watching their star rookie go down with an injury. Late in the second quarter of the team’s Week 13 matchup with the Steelers, Joe Mixon was hit hard in the helmet on a run play, then was briefly motionless on the ground after the whistle blew. After staying on the ground while being examined by trainers, Mixon eventually got up and walked off the field, seemingly fine. He went into the medical tent and then the locker room for further examinations, which likely include...
How Andy Dalton, not Joe Mixon, could be the key to success for the Bengals vs. the Steelers

How Andy Dalton, not Joe Mixon, could be the key to success for the Bengals vs. the Steelers

Time to go behind enemy lines to get the run down on the Steelers Week 13 opponent — the Cincinnati Bengals. There is no love lost between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. Despite Pittsburgh being 9-2, and the Bengals 5-6, these two teams would love nothing more than to drive a stake into their season. For the Steelers, the chance to essentially end Cincinnati’s season, and for the Bengals to put a huge hit on Pittsburgh’s chances at claiming home field advantage throughout the AFC Playoffs. With all that in mind, I was able to talk with Scott Schulze of Cincy Jungle,...

Bengals' Joe Mixon believes recent run of success is just the beginningBengals running back Joe Mixon got the latest edition of the Madden NFL video game this year.
