The Facts: Mixon appears to just be suffering from a sore ankle with minor swelling. Mixon is questionable for his Week 2 matchup against San Francisco but doesn’t appear to have suffered a lasting injury.
Diehards Line:We’ll continue to monitor Mixon’s status for Week 2. If he doesn’t play Giovani Bernard will assume the lead-back role but for one week at most. Mixon should be back to his bell-cow role by Week 3 if the good news holds.
