McKissic changed his mind about signing with the Bills and now intends to re-sign with Washington on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. According to the report, the contract terms McKissic is receiving from Washington are similar or identical to the two-year, $7 million verbal agreement he had with the Bills. The veteran receiving back might have benefited in fantasy terms from playing in a better offense, but he'll still be an important piece for Washington, replacing Antonio Gibson on third downs and in other obvious passing situations. McKissic saw a big drop in usage between 2020 and 2021, albeit with better efficiency to help negate some of the losses.
McKissic is slated to sign a two-year deal with the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. According to Schefter, McKissic's deal with the Bills is for $7 million, with the potential for another $1 million in incentives. The 28-year-old carried the ball 48 times for 212 yards and two TDs in 2021, adding 43 catches for 397 yards and a pair of receiving scores in 11 games for Washington. He'll provide Buffalo with an adept pass catcher out of the backfield in 2022, a context that puts McKissic on the PPR radar while working behind the team's top back, Devin Singletary. The Bills also have Zack Moss under contract for the next two seasons.
McKissic (concussion) wasn't among the players added to Washington's roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's season finale against the Giants. Considering Washington never designated McKissic to return from injured reserve following his move off the active roster Dec. 21, the decision not to activate him for Week 18 hardly comes as a surprise. Washington will have Antonio Gibson, Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams as its available running backs for the finale.
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.
McKissic (concussion) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Eagles. McKissic was unable to return to practice this week, and he'll be held out for a third straight game due to a concussion. Jaret Patterson should continue to see a slight uptick in playing time behind Antonio Gibson in Week 15.
