Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon popped up on the injury report with a chest injury ahead of Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills. 

However, it appears that he will be good to go on Sunday Night Football, according to Bengals head coach Zac Taylor. 

Here’s the latest on Mixon – and how to bet on him in the prop market – for Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills. 

Joe Mixon injury status for Week 9 game vs. Buffalo Bills

Mixon is listed as questionable for Week 9, but he is expected to play in the game – barring any setbacks. 

Best Joe Mixon prop bet vs. Buffalo Bills in NFL Week 9

Joe Mixon OVER 62.5 rushing yards

This is a dream matchup for Mixon, as the Bills allow the second most yards per carry in the NFL this season at 5.1. 

Mixon has cleared this rushing yards total in four of his last five games, and I wouldn't be shocked to see him do it again on Sunday Night Football. 

If the Bengals are willing to stick with the run game, it should pay dividends against this Buffalo defense.
