Bengals RB Joe Mixon ‘might have a shot’ at playing vs. 49ers, per report

Sep 9, 2019 at 10:59 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers might see Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon after all. Mixon suffered an ankle sprain during the Bengals' Week 1 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and finished the game with 10 yards on six carries. Giovani Bernard replaced him.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network provided a couple of updates on Mixon's injury, and there is even a possibility that the running back might be available for the Bengals' Week 2 contest against the San Francisco 49ers.



The 49ers remained on the East Coast and are staying in Youngstown, Ohio this week as the team prepares for its September 15 matchup at Paul Brown Stadium.

San Francisco also lost a running back to an ankle sprain during its Week 1 contest, a 31-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. Tevin Coleman was ruled out at halftime and is having an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Coleman is expected to "miss time" due to the injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked after the game if he was concerned about his running back's status.

"Yes, I am," he responded.

The San Francisco 49ers are among several teams that have held pre-draft virtual meetings with former Michigan running back Chris Evans. The news was brought to us by Danish journalist Søren Hansen, who was the first to report the date of Justin Fields' second pro day. "Michigan's RB Chris Evans has had zoom calls with the 49ers, Bengals, Patriots, Vikings, Giants and Chiefs," reads a translated tweet by Hansen. "Did not get much playing time in college and sat out in 2019, but is a great back and a good receiver who had a strong Pro Day. Interesting name for the bottom of the third day of the draft." Evans (5-11, 211) carried the football 16 times for just 73 yards



Fantasy Football Alert: Kyle Juszczyk says 49ers have 'big plans' for Raheem Mostert

Injuries limited San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert to eight games last season. Of course, injuries devastated the entire roster, resulting in a disappointing six-win campaign. Some better luck on the injury front could result in a quick turnaround for Mostert and his Niners. That's what recently re-signed fullback Kyle Juszczyk expects. In fact, the 49ers' offensive weapon expects big things in 2021 for his running back teammate. Much of that has to do with play-caller Kyle Shanahan and how the head coach takes advantage of each player's strengths. Juszczyk used wide receiver Deebo Samuel as an example. In each game, Shanahan installs two or three plays that can take advantage of the young wideout's physicality. "He knows that he just needs to get

Justin Fields took part in a workout this week in Columbus, Ohio, in front of potential suitors, including head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch of the San Francisco 49ers. That has caused the former Buckeye's stock to rise, and he is now the favorite to be drafted at No. 3 overall by the Niners. It was Fields' second pro day-style workout. His first took place on March 30. However, Shanahan and Lynch were not in attendance for that one. Wednesday's workout gave the 49ers' brain trust its first opportunity to watch the incoming rookie quarterback. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated believes there is at least one aspect of the

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler joined SportsCenter and shared what he is hearing about the San Francisco 49ers and their looming quarterback decision in the 2021 NFL Draft. The senior reporter shared that nothing has been decided yet, and quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State can still convince the team to select him No. 3 overall on April 29 with a strong pro day showing on Monday. "[T]he 49ers are taking this with an open mind, a broad approach," Fowler said. "They're still looking at all those quarterbacks. So, with no Combine this year, lack of game film, these pro days take on a heightened importance. So, they want to see Lance in play-action, moving around, mobility, tailoring things toward what maybe the 49ers would do on offense." Other options for
