The Cincinnati Bengals are in the midst of a tight AFC playoff race and still only one game back of the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC North lead. Coming off of a big Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, things could get even tougher for the Bengals on the offensive side of the ball if their Wednesday practice report holds true for Sunday.

Joe Mixon Injury Update

First, star running back Joe Mixon was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to illness. Luckily it was not from the neck injury that has been an area of concern lately.

Tee Higgins Injury Update

Additionally, wide receiver Tee Higgins also fully sat out Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.

While a missed Wednesday practice is nothing to get too crazy about, especially since both participated in the Week 13 contest, missing a Thursday practice would definitely be some real cause for concern.

Cincinnati will need all the offense it can get going up against a talented San Francisco 49ers defense in Week 14. Currently the Bengals are 1.5-point home underdogs in that matchup.
