Injury roundup: Bengals RB Joe Mixon active vs. Packers

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon, who didn't practice this week but did work out on Saturday, will play Sunday. He was not listed among the Bengals' inactives.

Mixon suffered a low-grade ankle sprain and won't be 100%, but the Oklahoma product is slated to go against the Green Bay Packers.

In four games this season, the former second-round pick is averaging 88.3 rushing yards per game and has scored two touchdowns.

In a battle of one-loss teams, the Bengals (3-1) play host to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers (3-1) at 1 p.m. ET at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.
