Bengals rookie Joe Mixon reportedly suffers foot injury

Every move Joe Mixon makes in the NFL is going to be scrutinized, and until he proves that he can be a model citizen many will be rooting against the former Oklahoma Sooner.

Those rooting against him got good news Thursday as Mixon came up gimpy after a play in practice. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported the team's medical staff was examining Mixon's left foot.



Mixon came across the national consciousness when video emerged of him breaking a young woman's jaw in Oklahoma prior to his freshman year. He was suspended for a year by the Sooners but came back to rush for 2,027 yards and 26 touchdowns in his two years with the program.

Seen as possibly a top-10 draft talent, Mixon fell all the way into the second round before the Bengals picked up the former five-star recruit.

The extent of the injury Mixon suffered Thursday is unclear, and the Bengals had yet to make a statement, but many will be waiting with bated breath to find out if Mixon will be missing any significant time in 2017.

Update: Mixon apparently suffered a cut on the heal and could have gone back in if necessary.
