Washington placed McKissic (concussion) on injured reserve Tuesday.

McKissic was already set to miss a third consecutive game Tuesday in Philadelphia, but his move to IR ensures that he'll also remain out Week 16 in Dallas and for the Week 17 rematch with the Eagles in Washington. The Football Team's decision to shut McKissic down through Week 17 doesn't come as a major surprise, as he was unable to practice in any fashion this week. With McKissic deactivated, lead back Antonio Gibson should be in line to pick up more passing-down work, while Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams handle small depth roles behind him.
