He needs to rest this week and then he has the bye week before the PIT/WSH games which will be tough in itself. We need a healthy Mixon especially with a nice schedule weeks 12-16 NYG MIA DAL PIT HOU, only tough matchup will be Pitt wk 15. Drafting/Owning Mixon at 1st was a question for many including myself (I even tried trading him a few times, everyone denying me, glad they did), but now it’s starting to look very promising, let Mixon rest please, it will only benefit later. I’m glad I got this guy and I think if healthy can do well for us in the final stretch.

Mixon is easily a Top 5/10 RB talent wise, however, he’s on a terrible team, with a terrible OL, with terrible clueless coaches in a terrible organization that don’t know wtf they’re doing.   

This dude is gonna shut up ALL the haters this week with a phenomenal matchup on tap...watch.     bold prediction: 14 carries, 64 yards rushing, 3 receptions for 23 yards.  BOOK IT

Arrow pointing down - if Gio has another solid game this weekend, no doubt he will earn a bigger piece of the pie going forward.  Getting major props from Burrow as well for his leadership.

yup 50-50 time share at best for sure, might as well pencil him in as a rb3/4 flex type when he returns /sarcasm

Mixon will certainly get most of the run plays as he is easily their best rusher but you would be crazy not to think that Gio won't take away hurry up + 3rd down snaps going forward.

He pretty much was doing this already, wasn't he?

Mixon is the guy. His contract proves that. His o-line is the only reason he’s not putting up 100 yard games weekly. 
 

as far as his injury goes, Taylor and the staff are just being cute by being secretive. Same as Sanders’ situation  in Philly. I’d expect Mixon to be ready to rock week 10, otherwise they’re doing themselves a disservice with their $48M man.

Why even bring him back this year?  By the team he is good to go, say two games from now the team might already be eliminated from the playoffs.  Him and Burrow are the future.  Rest him up for next year and have a gameplan with the additional draft picks to be competitive.

Why??? If he is healthy he is going to play. Why not just rest up Burrows, Higgins, Boyd, etc. if they're looking to be competitive next year.

This guy clearly owns Gio.  He wants a free RB2/3 at someone's expense.

None of those guys are hurt. A midfoot sprain is a tricky injury to treat and diagnose.  It can easily take a month to recover from and is easy to aggravate. The last thing I'd want for him as a player is to turn it into a bigger injury in a losing year and it roll into next year.

If he comes back after the bye that will be pretty much a month on the shelf

They gonna save their RB for a possible SB run in a few years? They should focus on winning a game now and shedding the pathetic losing attitude that’s ingrained in the organization

He’s a better pass blocker, but Gio isn’t a better pass receiver and isn’t better after the catch.

There is zero reason to sit him if he’s healthy. None, zilch, nada.
