Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon, added to Saturday’s injury report with a chest injury that left him questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Mixon played in 31 consecutive games. His last absence came in week 4 of the 2018 season in a street game against the Atlanta Falcons.
