The Cincinnati Bengals will be without two of their top offensive linesman in their AFC divisional playoff game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Left tackle Jonah Williams and right guard Alex Cappa have both been ruled out of the game, with right tackle La’el Collins still unavailable since Week 16 when he was ruled out with a torn ACL in his left knee. As a result, the Bengals will find themselves having to rely on three total reserves on the offensive line.
Despite suffering several injury setbacks, Bengals running back Joe Mixon remains confident in his team’s ability to come away with a win on Sunday, explaining that his team expressing focus and positive energy toward the showdown with the Bills.
“You know what’s at stake,” he explained. “The game being in the playoffs speaks for itself. Everybody’s like, ‘Big game, big game.’ But this is automatically a big game. This is the playoffs. It’s win or go home.”
