Gibson (shin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Las Vegas, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson's practice reps remain limited due to a stress fracture, but he hasn't missed a game all year and has three in a row with 19-plus carries since a Week 9 bye. He now has a chance to add some extra snaps (and targets), with J.D. McKissic (concussion) out for at least one game and possibly more. The other options to fill McKissic's snaps are rookie Jaret Patterson and practice-squad player Wendell Smallwood.

Gibson (shin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Limited reps in practice have been the norm for Gibson for most of the season while he manages a stress fracture of his shin, but his availability for Sunday's game against the Raiders doesn't appear to be in any peril. Since Washington's Week 9 bye, Gibson is averaging 24 carries and three targets per contest, suggesting the Football Team is comfortable with his health at this stage. Gibson could be primed for even more work in the passing game this weekend, as pass-catching specialist J.D. McKissic (concussion) didn't practice Thursday for the second straight day and looks to be trending toward an inactive status.

Gibson (shin) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson continues to log limited practices while playing through a stress fracture, and he's now taken 19 or more carries in three straight games, including a 36-touch effort with 146 total yards in Mondays 17-15 win over Seattle. Matching that volume is a tall task, but Gibson could take on another larger-than-usual snap share Sunday in Las Vegas, as passing-down back J.D. McKissic missed Wednesday's practice after suffering a head/neck injury Monday night.

Gibson rushed 29 times for 111 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 35 yards in Monday night's 17-15 win over the Seahawks.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson saw backup J.D. McKissic score both of Washington's touchdowns, but he was the workhorse who strengthened over the course of the game. Along with leading his team in receptions, Gibson garnered a career high in carries, helping Washington dominate possession. With a season best in scrimmage yards to boot, it was a strong showing from the tailback, who will now turn his attention toward Week 13's matchup versus the Raiders.

Gibson (shin) doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's game against the Seahawks, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson continues to be limited at practice while playing through a stress fracture in his shin, but once again it won't affect his availability on game day. The 23-year-old carried 19 times for 95 yards last week, but he played only 48 percent of the offensive snaps while also losing a fumble. Jaret Patterson could receive more of a look if Gibson has further issues with ball security versus Seattle.

Gibson (shin) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
This has been the norm since October with Gibson playing through a stress fracture in his shin. He should be fine for his usual role as Washington's lead runner Monday night against Seattle, though rookie Jaret Patterson has mixed in a bit more recently, including during the second quarter of last week's win over Carolina after Gibson lost a fumble.

Gibson (shin) was listed as limited on Thursday's injury report.
EDGE Analysis
This has been Gibson's reality for a good chunk of the campaign, but he's continued to garner a majority share of the backfield reps on a weekly basis, averaging 17.3 touches per game. Assuming he completes Week 12 prep without a designation as he usually does, he should approach a similar workload Monday against the Seahawks.

Gibson rushed 19 times for 95 yards but lost a fumble in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Panthers.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson got it going on the ground in the second half after rushing just five times for 19 yards prior to halftime. However, Gibson's improvement only came after he coughed the ball up in the red zone during the first quarter. The tailback also wasn't targeted for the first time this season, further restricting his output. Although Sunday still marked his highest rushing total of the campaign, Gibson's overall performance could've been slightly better without his fumble and with some passing-game involvement. He'll strive to put it all together in Week 12 versus the Seahawks.

Gibson (shin) was removed from Washington's injury report for Sunday's game at Carolina, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson continues to play through a stress fracture in his shin, and it appears a Week 9 bye may have done him some good, as he managed 26 touches and 63 percent snap share in his team's Week 10 win over Tampa Bay following three straight games with 16 of fewer touches on 42 percent or less of snaps. Game script/context was also a big factor, with J.D. McKissic getting more playing time throughout an ugly October where Washington repeatedly faced deficits. While Gibson's playing time and the total team rushing volume may vary week to week, his dominance of Washington's ground workload has been consistent.

Gibson (shin) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.
EDGE Analysis
Such is Gibson's situation in his second NFL season as he plays through a stress fracture in his shin. He's continued to serve as Washington's No. 1 running back, which has amounted to 17.1 touches for 73.8 yards from scrimmage per game and six TDs in nine contests. Meanwhile, No. 2 RB J.D. McKissic has managed 7.9 touches per game despite being healthier than Gibson on a weekly basis. As such, Gibson is the top option out of this backfield as long as he's able to suit up on game days.
