Gibson (shin) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson has been tending to a hairline fracture of his shin for a few weeks now, but the injury has yet to force him to miss any time. That said, Gibson's efficiency has nosedived over the last month, with the running back averaging just 3.5 yards per carry over Washington's past four games. Washington will enter Sunday's game as a heavy underdog, and if the Packers are able to establish an early lead and force the Football Team into catchup mode, Gibson's opportunities as a ball carrier could be limited.

Gibson (shin), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Schefter relays that the running back spent the early part of the season playing with a hairline fracture in his shin, an injury Ben Standig of The Athletic reports that Gibson previously described as a stress fracture. Regardless, Gibson has displayed improvement of late and is feeling better as Week 7 action approaches. While Schefter notes that Gibson continues to deal with a bone bruise in his shin area, the 23-year-old -- who has played in all six of his team's games to date -- is confident that he'll be good to go in Green Bay. Official confirmation of his status will arrive prior to the first wave of contests Sunday, with Washington and the Packers kicking off at 1 p.m. ET.

Gibson (shin), though listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, said Friday that he's confident he'll play this weekend, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
The running back acknowledged suffering a painful aggravation of his injury last weekend, but he said it didn't affect his play once he returned to the field against Kansas City. He now plans to tough it out for what will be at least a fourth straight week playing through a stress fracture, though it's possible J.D. McKissic gets more work if Gibson runs into trouble again. Fantasy managers should check back in before Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, as it's possible the team views Gibson as a game-time decision, even if the player himself isn't worried about his status.

Gibson (shin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson aggravated the stress fracture in his shin during last week's loss to the Chiefs, though game script may have been the larger factor in his season-low 40 percent snap share. His missed practice Wednesday was another potential sign of trouble, but Gibson then bounced back with limited participation Thursday and Friday, seemingly preparing to play through the injury again. Fantasy managers should nonetheless consider him questionable ahead of Washington's 1 p.m. ET kickoff in Green Bay this Sunday, with J.D. McKissic and Jaret Patterson being the team's backfield alternatives.

Gibson (shin) is going through positional drills during Friday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson sat out Wednesday's practice but returned as a limited participant Thursday, and it appears he's working in that capacity again Friday, at a minimum. The 23-year-old may not be able to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's matchup with the Packers, but he appears on track to play even if he officially ends up listed as questionable.

Gibson (shin) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
After sitting out Wednesday's session, Gibson has begun a slow ramp-up as Washington prepares for Sunday's visit to Green Bay. It's a positive sign for the running back, who has been playing through a stress fracture in his shin since Week 4. Gibson's offensive snap share suffered this past Sunday against the Chiefs -- a season-low 40 percent -- but he still had 12 touches, while J.D. McKissic had 16 on the other 60 percent.

Gibson (shin) was spotted participating in position drills Thursday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
It remains to be seen how the team lists Gibson's participation level, but his presence at practice Thursday, in any capacity, is a step in the right direction for the running back after he sat out Wednesday's session. Though Gibson has been dealing with what's been described as as a stress fracture in his shin since Week 4, he's been able to suit up for Washington's three games since then.

Gibson (shin) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson has been dealing with what's been termed as a stress fracture in his shin since Week 4, but he's subsequently played three straight games on his way to 50 touches for 191 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns. His practice limitations are likely precautionary, and he'll still have two practices to prove his health ahead of Sunday's visit to Green Bay.

Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Gibson (calf) underwent an MRI, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson sustained a calf injury late in Sunday's Week 6 loss to Kansas City, and the results of his exam should help determine the extent of the issue. The 23-year-old rushed 10 times for 44 yards while hauling in two of three targets for no yards prior to his exit Sunday, and J.D. McKissic is in line for additional work if Gibson is forced to miss time.

Gibson injured his calf during Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson was examined for a shin injury early in the contest but was able to return to action. Now, he's again being looked at by Washington trainers, only this time a calf issue is to blame. If he's unable to get back on the field, Gibson will finish Week 6 with 12 touches for 44 total yards. In Gibson's stead, J.D. McKissic will be the prime beneficiary, though undrafted rookie Jaret Patterson could get some run, too.
