Bengals RB Mixon logs full practice on Wednesday

Cincinnati Bengals running back JOE MIXON appears to be nearing a return to action, logging his first full practice on Wednesday since suffering a concussion against the Pittsburgh Steelers on NovemberMore 20th.

It’s looking like it will be Samaje Perine for the Bengals on Sunday. Joe Mixon is still in the concussion protocol, and he hasn’t practiced all week. But expectations should be modest.  more »

It might already be too late (really bugs me that ESPN runs their waivers overnight Tuesday rather than Wednesday), but make sure Samaje Perine is on a roster. He might need to start for the Bengals this week.   more »

Around the NFL: Bengals running backs

Toward the end of one of the Experts competitions last week, one participant accidentally had Adrian Peterson autodrafted for him. He asked me to switch that to Samaje Perine, which briefly gave me pause; I had to search my memory for where Perine was employed. He's in Cincinnati, and with Giovani Bernard gone, he looks like Joe Mixon's main backup. Not a bad last-round flier.   more »

Washington drafts RB Love, adds to crowded backfield corps

Washington raised eyebrows when the team drafted running back BRYCE LOVE in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. With ADRIAN PETERSON, CHRIS THOMPSON, DERRIUS GUICE, and SAMAJE PERINE allMore on the roster, it would seem like there is little room left for the rookie running back.

Around the NFL: Washington signing Peterson

I am not a big fan of Adrian Peterson (who is joining Washington). He’s 33 years old, and that’s awfully long in the tooth for a running back. Everyone hits the end of the road.  more »
