Another rookie bites the dust! Read on about Joe Mixon…
As of now, Joe Mixon is out to recover. The Bengals second round pick had his left foot looked at on the sideline, but he ended up leaving the team drills & didn’t return.
Mixon is just the newest rookie to learn that playing in the NFL is no joke because you can get seriously f’d up even during practice. He joins the list of injured rookies like Los Angeles Chargers Mike Williams and Forrest Lamp. they are two of their top rookies expected to make a big difference in 2017. The worst injury was Baltimore Ravens rookie guard Nico Siragusa, who blew out three ligaments in his knee.
When you blow out a knee, sometimes there is no coming back, If that happens to Siragusa, it will suck, because he never made it to a real game for his first season. We hope he at least gets a chance to experience a season even if it’s only a few games.
If Mixon is seriously injured, then it would be a big deal to the Bengals.
On the flip side, the Bengals Geoff Hobson shared his thoughts on Mixon pre-injury.
“Mixon should to touch the ball 15-20 times per game, right out of the gate in Week 1.”
