The Cincinnati Bengals will have both Joe Burrow and Joe Mixon at full strength for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Burrow suffered an apparent throat injury that required a precautionary hospital visit last week, but he’s fully ready to go

. Mixon was on a pitch count last week, yet still scored a touchdown before going limited in practice this week. Friday, Bengals coach Zac Taylor confirmed Mixon won’t have any restrictions for this week’s game.

Before issuing the final injury report, the Bengals sent rookie D’Ante Smith to IR. He would have started in place of fellow rookie Jackson Carman, who just got re-activated from the COVID list and should instead start on short notice.

On the injury report itself, three players wound up listed as questionable:

  • G Jackson Carman (NIR)

  • HB Joe Mixon (ankle)

  • WR Mike Thomas (ankle)

And the injury report for the Lions:
