Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon did not participate in practice for the second straight day on Thursday due to a foot injury.

Mixon's availability for this weekend's game against the Cleveland Browns (4-2) would be in jeopardy should he fail to participate in practice on Friday. He has played in 34 straight games dating back to the 2018 season.

The 24-year-old Mixon sustained the injury in the first half of Cincinnati's 31-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. He returned to the contest and finished with 18 carries for 54 yards and a touchdown.

Mixon has 119 carries for 428 yards and three touchdowns in six games with the Bengals (1-4-1). He's also reeled in 21 receptions for 138 yards and a score.

Mixon has rushed for 3,359 yards and 20 touchdowns and added 129 catches for 1,008 yards and five scores in 50 career games. He was selected by Cincinnati in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
