Bibbs played 24 of 58 snaps on offense in Sunday's 16-3 win at Tampa Bay, taking three carries for 28 yards and catching two of four targets for 13 yards. Bibbs continued in his role on passing downs with Chris Thompson (ribs) out for another week, while Adrian Peterson piled up 21 touches on 34 snaps. Bibbs has been a competent replacement, but the passing-down role doesn't demand touches unless Thompson is in the lineup. It's unclear if Thompson will make it back for Week 11 against the Texans.
Bibbs took three carries for 20 yards and a touchdown and caught his only target for a 15-yard gain in Sunday's 38-14 loss to Atlanta. Bibbs filled in for Chris Thompson (ribs) on passing downs, playing 21 of 69 snaps (30 percent) on offense and hitting paydirt for the third time this season. He then missed out on an opportunity to pad his stat line in garbage time, as Washington turned to Samaje Perine for the meaningless final drive. Bibbs has some deep-league appeal for a Week 10 matchup at Tampa Bay, but only if Thompson is forced to miss another game.
Bibbs (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday versus the Falcons, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. The Redskins ruled out Chris Thompson (ribs) and entered the weekend with Bibbs listed as questionable. After opting not to activate fellow running back Byron Marshall (knee) from injured reserve Saturday, Bibbs' odds to play just a week removed from suffering a separated shoulder improved. However, who will spell Adrian Peterson between Bibbs and Samaje Perine remains to be seen.
Bibbs (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. After separating his left shoulder in the Week 8 win over the Giants, Bibbs surprisingly participated in all three of the Redskins' practices this week, though he was limited in all of them. That activity still might be enough for Bibbs to play hurt Sunday, though it wouldn't be surprising if the Redskins reinstated Byron Marshall (knee) from injured reserve to fortify their backfield depth. If Bibbs sits out this weekend or is limited significantly and if Marshall isn't activated, the Redskins would be without a quality pass-catching running back, as Adrian Peterson and Samaje Perine aren't ideally suited to help out in that capacity. The team's top receiving specialist out of the backfield, Chris Thompson (ribs), has already been ruled out for Week 9.
Bibbs (shoulder) is listed as a limited participant on the Wednesday injury report. Bibbs separated his left shoulder during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Giants, logging 10 snaps on special teams and just one on offense with Chris Thompson (ribs) back in the lineup. If Bibbs is able to tough it out and play Week 9 against the Falcons, there may be opportunity for him to take on a significant role once again, as Thompson was held out of practice Wednesday after suffering another injury Sunday. The situation becomes even more intriguing after accounting for the matchup with an Atlanta defense that has given up 8.9 receptions per game to running backs this season. Of course, the Falcons also have surrendered 4.8 yards per carry and nine rushing touchdowns, so a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson is likely in the cards as well.
