“I looked up to him,” he said. “I wasn’t tripping. If he doesn’t want me doing it, then I ain’t going to do it.”

The conversation between the two began with Mixon's comments following the 29-14 loss at Pittsburgh on Oct. 22, when he said he could do "way more" than Bell if given the opportunity to run the ball more.
Mixon was frustrated after getting just seven carries despite rushing for 48 yards in the loss.
With the rematch looming Monday night, Mixon was asked if he planned to approach Bell on the field to clear the air.
“I’m going out there to win the football game,” Mixon said. “I’m not going out there to figure out what another man is thinking.”
