MRI results on Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon’s sprained left ankle were “all good” Monday, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported.

No extended absence is expected and Mixon could be ready for Sunday’s home opener against the San Francisco 49ers, per the report.

Mixon left early in the third quarter of the season-opening 21-20 loss at Seattle after being tackled by Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner on a short run. He did not return.

The AFC’s leading rusher last season with 1,168 yards, he finished with six carries for 10 yards and two catches for 7 yards.

Backup Giovani Bernard rushed seven times for 21 yards and caught two passes for 42 yards.
