Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was off to a great start to the year, thanks to finally being 100% healthy. However, he was seemingly bit by the injury bug once again at the end of the team's Week 4 win on Thursday night.
Head coach Zac Taylor provided an update on Mixon's status after the victory.
Joe Mixon Injury
Taylor believes that Mixon's ankle injury is "minor" and didn't seem too concerned after Thursday's game. Still, the new ailment is something for Bengals fans to worry about. Mixon didn't take the field for the team's game-winning drive, so it's clear something isn't right.
Mixon has missed significant time in his career due to injuries. That includes being limited to just six games in 2020 due to a foot injury. Now he's dealing with another lower-leg issue, and it's fair to be concerned about the fifth-year pro's health heading into Week 5.
Thankfully Mixon will have over a week to recover with Cincinnati's next game set for Sunday, Oct. 10. Those extra rest days coming off of Thursday Night Football could be pivotal in getting the RB back to his pre-injury self.
