Cincinnati Bengals running back, Joe Mixon, is expected to miss two weeks to undergo a procedure on his knee. He sustained the injury to his knee in Thursday night’s contest against the Baltimore Ravens. He finished the game with 84 yards rushing en route to a Bengals 34-23 victory.

Mixon said, after the game, that his knee was bothering him and said it felt like a “weird tweak.” He checked in and out of the game, constantly, while coaches and medical staff tended to him.
With Mixon out, Giovani Bernard will assume ball-handling duties during the Bengals next game against the Carolina Panthers in 10 days
