Giovani Bernard Player Overview

Bernard bounced back from his 2016 ACL tear to play a full 16 games last season. He reached 50% playing time just once through the 1st 11 games, though. Bernard previously rebounded from a tear in his other (right) ACL as a college freshman back in 2010. He has also enjoyed a durable NFL career, losing 3 other games to a 2014 hip injury. Bernard hits 2018 as the #2 back, with signs pointing toward Joe Mixon taking workhorse duties in his 2nd year.
