UPDATE: Joe Mixon, who is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs due to his continued participation in the NFL’s concussion protocol, is a “long shot” to play.
As of Friday lunchtime, Joe Mixon was still in the concussion protocol. According to Zac Taylor, the Bengals are taking things one day at a time.
While Joe Mixon will begin the week on the Cincinnati Bengals injury report as limited with a concussion, this should be a procedural situation in Week 13.

Mixon, according to Zac Taylor, must have a full practice before being cleared of the concussion protocol.
During the open portion of practice, Mixon did not appear to have any limitations, which bodes well for Sunday.
Returning to play after a concussion has little effect on performance. He was, however, barred from working for the first two days of the week. As a result, assuming Mixon remains healthy, he should be able to return to starting lineups.
