Mixon sat out Thursday's preseason loss to the Giants, just as he had the week before, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. "We just didn't really feel the need to give him any touches," Taylor said of Mixon. "What's one or two touches going to help him two weeks from now? So we just made the decision to keep him out. He's fully healthy and went through warmups with no issues."
