Mixon doesn’t practice Thursday

If you’re in your fantasy football playoffs like I am and relying on Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mix like I am, then you aren’t thrilled by today’s news. Mixon suffered a concussion in Monday Night’s terrible loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

So, will Mixon be ready to play this week?

So far, it’s not looking great. According to Bengals writer Jay Morrison, Mixon didn’t practice on Thursday.

“Vinny Rey practicing again today for the #Bengals but the 8 that were out yesterday are out again:
Burfict
Mixon
Pacman
Vigil
Dennard
Kirkpatrick
Williams
Wilson,” Morrison tweets in list fashion.

Mixon could indeed play this week, but he’s probably going to have to practice first. The wait will leave fantasy owners biting their nails until they can find out for sure.

UPDATE: He’s out vs. Bears this weekend.
