Bengals running back Joe Mixon practiced Friday and appears set to play Sunday against the Chargers in Los Angeles.
Mixon made an unexpected appearance on the injury report this week with a foot injury and was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday. But the Cincinnati Enquirer reported the second-year back was “looking good” in practice Friday.
That’s good news for the Bengals’ banged up offense, which is already dealing with the season-ending injury to No. 1 wideout A.J. Green.
Mixon has rushed for 755 yards (4.9 yards per carry) and five touchdowns this season, and added 33 receptions for 256 yards and one touchdown through the air.
