Bengals RB Joe Mixon ruled out for game against Browns

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon is out with a foot injury and won’t play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Mixon injured his right foot in the first half of last week’s game with the Indianapolis Colts but later returned. He didn’t practice this week and was ruled out Friday. The Bengals didn’t disclose the specific nature of the injury.

Giovani Bernard likely will get the start at running back with Mixon unavailable.

Mixon has 428 yards and three touchdowns this season and averages 3.6 yards per carry. He also has 138 receiving yards and a touchdown.
