    Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Won't need toe procedure

    Antonio Gibson indicated that he won't require an offseason procedure to address the toe issue he played through down the stretch this season, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.Gibson, who is currently listed on the Washington Football Team web site as 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, also noted that he hopes to slim down some this offseason, with an eye toward gaining more explosiveness as a runner. In 14 games this past season, the 2020 third-rounder carried 170 times for 795 yards and 11 TDs, while catching 36 of his 44 targets for 247 yards. Looking ahead, Gibson is slated to head his team's backfield from the get-go in 2021 and in that context, he should see increased volume as long as he can stay on the field. Also remaining under contract with Washington next season are pass-catching ace J.D. McKissic, as well as Peyton Barber and Bryce Love.

    Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Struggles in wild-card loss

    Antonio Gibson (toe) rushed 14 times for 31 yards and secured two of three targets for four yards in Washington's 31-23 wild-card loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday night.The rookie back was able to work through his toe issue as he had during the final two regular-season games, but he unsurprisingly found running room at a premium against the Buccaneers' No. 1-ranked rush defense. Despite missing two games to injury and splitting carries throughout the majority of the campaign, Gibson still finished his first pro season with a solid 4.7 yards per carry, 11 rushing touchdowns and 36 receptions over 14 regular-season games. He'll look to build on those numbers significantly in 2021 while likely serving in a more clear-cut lead-back role.

    Antonio Gibson (toe) is listed as questionable for Saturday's wild-card game versus the Buccaneers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.Gibson sat out Weeks 14 and 15 due to a turf toe injury, but he was able to cap the season with appearances in both of Washington's final two games of the campaign.

    Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Looking good for Saturday

    Antonio Gibson (toe) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.Gibson played through the toe injury the past two weeks, but he felt well enough to handle 20 touches and play 59 percent of the offensive snaps in Washington's victory over Philadelphia in the regular-season finale. He draws a tough matchup in the wild-card round, facing a Bucs defense that led the league in both rushing yards allowed (80.6 per game) and opponent yards per carry (3.6).

    Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Gets in work on side

    Antonio Gibson (toe) worked with the training staff on the side during Wednesday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.Gibson played through a turf toe injury Weeks 16 and 17, racking up 136 yards on 29 rushes and hauling in four of five targets for 14 yards. He didn't log any practice reps last week before suiting up for the regular-season finale against the Eagles, so he doesn't necessarily have to take part in drills this week to be cleared for Saturday's wild-card game versus the Buccaneers. Wednesday's injury report will reveal whether or not Gibson made an appearance on the practice field.

    Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Listed as DNP

    Antonio Gibson (toe) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.Gibson logged 37 of a possible 63 snaps on offense in this past Sunday's playoff-clinching win over the Eagles, en route to carrying 19 times for 75 yards. With no reported setbacks in that contest, it seems likely that Gibson's DNP listing Tuesday is indicative of him continuing to manage the toe issue that led to him being listed as questionable heading into Week 17 action.

    Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Posts 75 yards in crucial win

    Antonio Gibson (toe) rushed 19 times for 75 yards and caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's playoff-clinching win over the Eagles.Gibson concludes his rookie campaign with 795 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on 170 carries (4.7 yards per tote) while catching 36 passes for 247 more yards. Washington unearthed a gem in the third round of this year's draft, and the breakout back let the world know with a monstrous three-touchdown showcase against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Gibson was already producing fantasy-worthy numbers prior to his explosion on national television, but his ascension to the top of the player rankings was brought to a screeching halt when he suffered a toe injury late in the year. The 22-year-old was able to get back into action before Washington heads into the playoffs, which bodes well for the Washington Football Team's chances of upsetting Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday. Perhaps the talented rookie can increase his stock even more with another statement game on the national stage, but we have seen enough to already consider Gibson a starting-level player with upside in fantasy drafts next season.

    Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Active Sunday

    Antonio Gibson (toe) is active for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.Gibson is playing through a turf toe injury at the moment, which sidelined him Weeks 14 and 15 before he mustered 69 yards from scrimmage on 13 touches last Sunday against the Panthers. Washington can clinch the NFC East with a victory Sunday, so Gibson may attempt to increase the 30-percent share of the offensive snaps that he garnered Week 16.

    Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Likely to play Week 17

    Antonio Gibson (toe), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, is expected to be "good to go" for the regular-season finale, Field Yates of ESPN reports.Gibson's availability won't be locked in until Washington releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to the game's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff, but the rookie looks like he'll be ready to go as the Washington Football Team looks to punch its ticket to the postseason. After missing Weeks 14 and 15 while battling turf toe, Gibson returned to action for the Week 16 loss to Carolina, playing 21 snaps and carrying 10 times for 61 yards while hauling in three of four targets for eight yards. Gibson didn't practice in any fashion this week, but head coach Ron Rivera indicated that the Football Team was merely taking a cautious approach with the running back leading up to the all-important season finale. Assuming he's active, Gibson should serve as Washington's lead ball carrier while splitting work on passing downs with J.D. McKissic.
