Bengals running back Joe Mixon will undergo a knee procedure on Friday to remove a dislodged particle in his knee per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mixon is expected to miss two weeks.

Mixon exited during the first half of Thursday night's game against Baltimore with a hurt knee, returning after halftime. He rushed for 84 yards on 21 carries in the Bengals' victory, playing a key role in the fourth quarter.

A second-round pick in the 2017 draft, Mixon averaged 3.5 yards per carry as a rookie and rushed for 626 yards. He also added four touchdowns. Seven-year veteran Giovani Bernard is expected to get the starting nod in Mixon's absence.
