Cincinnati Bengals Running Back Trending In The Direction Of A Week 13 Return

The Cincinnati Bengals came up with a clutch win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 12, keeping hold of the 7th seed in the AFC playoffs for now, and in Week 13, they'll get the boost of a returning Ja'Marr Chase, with the possibility of another massive weapon making a big return.

Unfortunately for the Bengals, red-hot running back Joe Mixon missed their Week 12 clash due to a concussion he suffered in the Week 11 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and while he remains in the NFL's concussion protocol on Monday, he's trending in the right direction of a return for the teams playoff push over the coming six weeks.

In 2022, Mixon has accumulated 605 rushing yards with 6 Touchdowns to go along with 314 receiving yards and 2 Touchdowns, and with the star wide receiver group of Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, this offence has a good chance to once again carry this team a long, long way in the 2022 playoffs if healthy.
