Gibson (hip) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson tended to a hip injury during Week 17 prep before Washington placed him on the reserve/COVID-19 list last Friday, resulting in his first absence of the campaign this past Sunday against the Eagles. He made his way back to the active roster Wednesday, but his practice reps continued to be capped by the hip issue. Gibson has managed to play through the pain this season, and Friday's injury report could pave the way for him to suit up in Week 18. Even if it doesn't, though, he should have his customary questionable designation heading into the weekend.

Gibson was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a hip injury, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson has dealt with toe and hip injuries of late after playing through a shin stress fracture for most of the season, but his only absence of the campaign came in the Week 17 loss to Philadelphia after he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Jaret Patterson stepped up with Gibson out last Sunday, taking 17 touches for 98 yards and a touchdown while playing 62 percent of snaps on offense. After being activated from the list earlier Wednesday, Gibson tentatively appears on track to play Week 18 against the Giants, though he could cede more work to Patterson as the Football Team aims to preserve his health heading into the offseason.

Washington activated Gibson (hip) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson can now return to team facilities and begin preparing for Washington's season finale Sunday against the Giants. Though he's overcome his bout with the virus, Gibson's lingering hip injury could still complicate his Week 18 availability, so his participation in practices Wednesday through Friday will need to be monitored closely. The Football Team also has rookie Jaret Patterson available, after he served as the lead back in the Week 17 loss to the Eagles while Gibson was out of the lineup.

Gibson (hip) remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles, per Field Yates of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
EDGE Analysis
Washington made multiple roster moves Saturday, but Gibson wasn't activated by the team in advance of Week 17 action. Until the running back, who is also dealing with a hip issue, clears the NFL's COVID protocols, Jaret Patterson is poised to serve as Washington's lead option on the ground, with Jonathan Williams also factoring into the team's backfield mix as well as Wendell Smallwood.

Washington placed Gibson (hip) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.
EDGE Analysis
According to John Keim of ESPN.com, Gibson is vaccinated, which means he was placed on the list as a result of testing positive. He'll theoretically have a chance to play Sunday against the Eagles if he can test out of the protocol in rapid fashion, though the timing of his placement on the list makes that highly unlikely. With that in mind, Jaret Patterson could be in line to serve as Washington's lead option on the ground Week 17, with Jonathan Williams also factoring into the backfield mix.

Gibson (hip) wasn't present for Thursday's practice and is set to be listed as a non-participant on Washington's official report, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
After aggravating a turf toe injury, Gibson was viewed as a game-time decision leading up to last week's matchup with the Cowboys, but he proceeded to suit up and played just 35 percent of the offensive snaps -- his second-lowest share of the season -- in Washington's 56-14 loss. The blowout was believed to be the root cause of Gibson's limited workload, but the fact that he's being listed on the Week 17 injury report with a hip issue suggests that the new health concern either contributed to his light snap count or is something that cropped up during Wednesday's practice, when he was listed as limited. Gibson's absence from Thursday's workout isn't the most encouraging sign as Sunday's game against the Eagles approaches. Unless Gibson returns to the field Friday as a full participant, he'll likely carry a designation into the weekend.

Gibson was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a hip injury, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson dealt with a shin fracture for most of the season and more recently a toe injury, but it's the hip that has him listed as limited this Wednesday. He'll likely give it a go this Sunday against the Eagles following a limited workload in the Week 16 blowout loss to Dallas. Gibson was one of the few bright spots for Washington during a brutal first half, but he barely played post-halftime with the game well out of reach.

Gibson rushed six times for 29 yards and caught two of four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 56-14 blowout loss to the Cowboys.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson is one of Washington's top producers, and he proved that by scoring one of just two scores his team could muster in a crushing divisional loss. The sinking Football Team hasn't been able to provide positive game scripts for its starting running back, resulting in an average of 31.3 rushing yards over his last three games. However, Gibson has managed to keep his fantasy value afloat with two scores over the last two weeks. Next week's opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles, aren't world beaters on defense, but it is worth noting that Gibson was held to a 15-26-1 rushing line when these two teams met in Week 15.

Gibson (toe) is active for Sunday's game at Dallas.
EDGE Analysis
Clearly, Gibson was held out of practice this week due to the toe injury he picked up Tuesday in Philadelphia for maintenance-related purposes. Now that he's confirmed to be available to the offense, he's poised for his typical 14.7 touches per game, though Jaret Patterson, Jonathan Williams and Wendell Smallwood are available for any RB reps that linger.

Gibson (toe) is a game-time decision for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though Gibson didn't practice this past week due to a toe injury, Rapoport suggests that there's some optimism the running back could be able to give it a go. Given that Washington kicks off at 8:20 ET on Sunday, ideally those considering Gibson in Week 16 lineups would have alternatives available. Options include running backs from Dallas, Miami, New Orleans and those behind Gibson on Washington's depth chart, starting with Jaret Patterson.
