Cincinnati Bengals coach Zac Taylor said he will take an extra day to determine the availability of running back Joe Mixon for Sunday’s game against the visiting Green Bay Packers.

Taylor told reporters Friday that Mixon will work out for the team on Saturday. Mixon has yet to practice this week after sustaining a low-grade ankle sprain in the Bengals’ 24-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sept. 30.

Samaje Perine would be in line for a larger workload for the Bengals (3-1) should Mixon be unable to play against the Packers (3-1).

Mixon, 25, leads the team in carries (83), rushing yards (353) and rushing touchdowns (two).

Perine, 26, has nine carries for 28 yards.

Taylor also said wide receiver Tee Higgins is on track to play Sunday after missing two games with a shoulder injury.

Higgins, 22, totaled 10 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns in the first two games of the season.
