Mixon turned those 11 chances into 64 yards and a score on a 5.8 per-carry average, leading to the idea he was still banged up from a minor knee surgery.

Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com — who knows more than anybody else — says it wasn’t a health-related issue:

But this I know. It wasn’t a health issue or a rough issue. They made Mixon active with the belief he could pound it. You’d never put a running back in there with the idea you couldn’t use him full go. Especially when only two are active. If they were going to take it easy on him it would have been last week in his first game back, 22 days off a knee scope. But he came within one touch of his career-high with 25 touches against the Dolphins]]>

<![CDATA[Here's why Marvin Lewis swapped Joe Mixon out for Mark Walton often vs. Pittsburgh]]> Joe Mixon’s usage after his Cincinnati Bengals went down at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.

After all, Mixon ran for 64 yards and a touchdown while averaging 5.8 yards per carry…on just 11 attempts. Mixon played just 69 percent of the snaps while rookie Mark Walton soaked up 31 percent.

Marvin Lewis on Mark Walton coming in the game at times instead of Mixon: "We were just trying to give Joe a blow. You don’t want to get to the end of the game, and he’s at 60-70 plays and Mark is at five. We want to make sure both guys stay fresh.]]>

Mixon gave his team a 21-20 lead with 1:18 remaining on a four-yard rushing score. Cincinnati likely regrets not giving Mixon more work, as he was extremely effective on a per-touch basis. Expect more touches for the workhorse running back against the vulnerable Chiefs defense in Week 7.

After the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter, the Bengals took a 21-20 lead on a Joe Mixon score…but gave the Steelers plenty of time to respond.

Too much time. The Steelers drove down the field to steal it, 28-21, putting the Bengals in a tough spot before having to deal with Kansas City next week.

William Jackson looks fine despite being labeled questionable, stopping a run on the first drive of the game]]>

<![CDATA[Handles bell-cow role in return]]> Mixon (knee) rushed for 93 yards on 22 carries and caught three of four targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 win over Miami.

Mixon was the only Bengals running back to get a carry in this one, suggesting the team is comfortable giving him all the work he can handle. He made a terrific adjustment with the ball in the air to get in position for an 18-yard receiving score on the first play of the fourth quarter, propelling a 24-0 Cincinnati run to close out the game. Mixon will be an appealing Week 6 play against the Steelers.

Barring any setbacks, Mixon should be in line to head the team's Week 5 backfield, but per Hobson, "it's unclear how much he'll be able to play with the 82-degree heat testing his conditioning." As a result, the Bengals elected to activate Thomas Rawls on Sunday to provide depth behind Mixon and Mark Walton. With that in mind, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com suggests that Walton -- who logged five carries for nine yards in Week 4 -- could be turned to Sunday when Mixon (whose conditioning following his absence could be an issue) needs a breather.

<![CDATA[Should see bulk of Week 5 workload]]> Although both Mark Walton and Thomas Rawls are active for Sunday's Week 5 tilt against the Dolphins, Mixon is still expected to see a solid workload in his return from a knee injury, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Rawls doesn't figure to be any serious threat to touches and is likely only active as an emergency option, while the rookie Walton only has four carries on the season. However, with Mixon seeing his first game action after missing the last pair of contests following arthroscopic knee surgery, it's not surprising Cincinnati will insulate themselves against a setback with a full complement of backs in the absence of Mixon's primary backup Giovani Bernard (knee).

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)

FF Today'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.]]>
