Ward is a familiar face who spent most of 2017 on the Philadelphia practice squad, while Johnson has no history with the team but did lead the AAF in catches and receiving yards. A 2017 fifth-round pick, Gibson was active for 15 games in 2018, playing 151 snaps on special teams and just 64 on offense. He'll compete with Johnson, Ward, Mack Hollins (groin), Braxton Miller and a few other players for what likely will be two or three roster spots. Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson (Achilles) and Nelson Agholo are locked in atop the Eagles' depth chart at wide receiver.
Gibson hauled in just one of his three targets for 48 yards while playing 15 games this season.
Gibson saw double-digit offensive snaps in a game just once in 2018, but the acquisition of Golden Tate almost completely relegated the West Virginia product to special teams in the second half. He would see just four plays on offense after the Eagles' Week 9 bye. Even with Tate and Mike Wallace (ankle) set to test free-agent waters this offseason, the 23-year-old will still have an uphill battle to playing time in 2019 behind Alshon Jeffery (ribs), Nelson Agholor and possibly Mack Hollins (groin) or any additional receivers brought into the fold.
Gibson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Saints.
Gibson was listed as questionable after being added to the injury report Friday as a limited participant. The 23-year-old hasn't played an offensive snap since Week 13 and is likely to be limited to a role on special teams as a kick returner.
Gibson (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Saints.
Gibson was added to Friday's injury report as a limited participant in practice. The second-year wideout has not played an offensive snap since Week 13 of the regular season, and he'll take most of his snaps as the Eagles' top kick returner if he's able to suit up versus New Orleans.
Gibson is active for Sunday night's game against the Rams, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Gibson has only seen three offensive snaps total over the last four weeks. His impact will likely only be felt on special teams.
