Bengals Running Back Officially In Concussion Protocol

The Cincinnati Bengals have been one of the hottest teams in the entire NFL as of late, and if things go well in practice this week on the back of scoring 37 points against the Pittsburgh Steelers, they could have their biggest star in Ja'Marr Chase back, but the news isn't all good on this offensive unit.

The news isn't surprising though, as after taking a shot to the head in the 7-point win over the division rival and leaving the game, running back Joe Mixon finds himself in the NFL's concussion protocol, and given how the NFL have handled concussions in recent times, it's not a guarantee that he'll be back for Week 12 when the Bengals take on the Tennessee Titans.

With Chase and Mixon healthy, this is arguably the best offence in the entire NFL, as we've seen flashes of that without both in the lineup, and if they can sneak themselves into the playoffs, this is once again going to be a very dangerous team.
