Planning to play
Bengals’ RB Joe Mixon, listed as questionable for Sunday with a sprained ankle, is planning to play vs. the 49ers but wants to test the injury in pregame warmups just to make sure first, per source. But going in, Mixon plans to play. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Sounds like Mixon is more likely to play than not but we won’t know for sure until he goes through pre-game warmup. If he does play, it’s unclear if he’ll receive a full workload. Giovani Bernard is waiting in the wings.
