| Bigger role for Mark Walton?|
Mixon could see reduced snaps
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 7, 9:55 am
|Joe Mixon back in the lineup today for the #Bengals, but with him being out the last couple weeks don’t expect him to be used in an every down manner. With Gio Bernard out today, expect Mark Walton to get some carries. #bengals #dolphins (Dianna Russini on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We've had multiple reports over the last couple days that Mixon could be limited as he returns from his knee injury. Expect to start and lead the team in running back touches but he might not be cast in a workhorse role. He's a solid RB2 with RB1 upside if touchdowns work in his favor.
| Giovani Bernard, John Ross out for Bengals|
Bernard out 2-4 weeks with MCL sprain

|John Ross, Giovani Bernard, Billy Price all out. Expect a roster move later today moving Eifert to IR and promoting Burfict off roster exemption. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With Bernard expected to miss a couple weeks, Joe Mixon will resume his starting role in the offense. Head coach Marvin Lewis hinted Mixon might get his usual workload due to lack of conditioning during rehab. Expect to see Mark Walton get some carries against the Dolphins as well.
| Joe Mixon expected to have knee surgery|

|Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon came out of Thursday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens multiple times, gritting through pain to help finish out the 34-23 win. Reports indicate Mixon will need arthroscopic surgery on his knee and sought a second opinion. The issue is not thought to be serious through the lens of the season, but could keep Mixon out for a couple games, via Adam Schefter. The good news for the Bengals is they have 10 days off until they play at Carolina. (Cincinnati Enquirer)|
FFToday's Take: Arthroscopic procedures are typically come with a 2-4 week recovery time. While Mixon is out, Giovani Bernard will take over as the lead back with Tra Carson and Mark Walton filling out the depth chart. The Bengals schedule includes: @Carolina, @ Atlanta, Miami and Pittsburgh.
