Bernard (hip/clavicle) is probable for Sunday's game against the Texans after practicing fully Friday, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While Bernard is on track to resume action this week, his potential workload level in his anticipated return to action lacks clarity, though it appears as though the Bengals may be inclined to ease Bernard back into their backfield mix this weekend, with Jeremy Hill still a candidate to see his share of Week 12 carries, on the heels of his 27-carry, 152-yard effort in Week 11.
Bernard (hip/clavicle) indicated that he felt good after practicing fully Thursday, the Bengals' official site reports.

Though coach Marvin Lewis hinted at optimism that Bernard (hip/clavicle) would be able to practice this week, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com relays that Lewis added a "we'll see" on that front.

The Bengals' official site suggests that Bernard (hip/clavicle) is a candidate to return to action this coming Sunday against the Texans.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Such an outcome would be supported by the running back returning to practice this week, though we suspect that given how well fellow RB Jeremy Hill has responded when seeing a heavy workload of late, Bernard could well be eased back into the Bengals' backfield mix in some form of timeshare upon his potential return.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The 37th overall pick and first RB selected this year Bernard has extremely quick feet and the vision and burst to break runs outside. Bernard's also a natural receiver out of the backfield and, as such, is likely to see plenty of third-down work. He'll likely begin the year as a change-of-pace runner and complement to BenJarvus Green-Ellis, but has the tools to be a productive three-down back should Green-Ellis miss time.
