Bengals’ Joe Mixon Active

The Cincinnati Bengals will have running back Joe Mixon back in his lead role for their Week 16 matchup with the Detroit Lions.

Mixon had been out with a concussion and will likely be the lead back with Giovani Bernard factoring in on passing downs.

Expect Cincy to rely on Mixon heavily in this game as they try to grind down the banged up Detroit Lions.
