Friday update: Gibson has been listed as questionable on the final injury report. His coach liked his chances to play earlier in the week and he was able to return to practice on Friday after sitting out Thursday. Of course, he might not be 100% and they have Brian Robinson ready to take on the lead back duties.
Thursday PM update: Head coach Ron Rivera told reporters on Thursday that the team has a plan to get Gibson ready for Week 13. At this point we can expect him to play.
Commanders OC Scott Turner on the foot injury to Antonio Gibson: "We got a plan for him to get him ready. As we go, I think he'll be all right."— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) December 1, 2022
Thursday update: Gibson was not practicing on Thursday, per Ethan Cadeaux. Most of the beat writers appear to be leaning toward this being a rest day for Gibson more than a setback of his foot injury, but we will see. He was limited on Wednesday.
Week 13 of the NFL season is here. The Washington Commanders will hit the road to take on the New York Giants in an NFC East battle. Washington is on a three-game win streak with quarterback Taylor Heinicke playing well. He has helped turn the offense around but could be missing some key pieces this weekend. On the Wednesday injury report, starting running back Antonio Gibson was limited in practice with a foot injury.
Fantasy football implications for Week 13
Gibson has played in all 12 games for the Commanders. He heads into this week with 130 rushing attempts for 476 yards and three touchdowns. Gibson has seen his receiving work increase had has brought in 40 of his 47 targets for 306 yards and two touchdowns. Backup running back Brian Robinson Jr. has been eating into his workload, but Gibson still has a decent floor for a fantasy running back. If he is active, he can still be started in your fantasy football lineups. If Gibson is ruled inactive, Robinson gets that much more of an uptick in the offense and should be started in place of Gibson.
