Gibson (shin) is now listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Kansas City, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
The final injury report apparently wasn't quite final, with the team updating it after about 20 minutes to list Gibson as questionable rather than with no designation. He's nonetheless expected to continue playing through a shin fracture, just as he did the past two weeks when listed as questionable. Still, cautious fantasy managers should check back in to be safe when Washington releases its inactive list at 11:30 a.m. ET this Sunday.

Gibson (shin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Kansas City, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
He'll continue playing through a hairline fracture, having said himself that the injury isn't really bothering him, though it has limited his practice participation in recent weeks. Gibson took 34 carries for 123 yards and three touchdowns over his past two games, and he could be the clear centerpiece of Washington's offense come Sunday if WR Terry McLaurin (Q/hamstring) is absent or limited. The Chiefs rank bottom five in most efficiency metrics for both pass defense and run defense.

Gibson (shin) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson showed up on the injury report ahead of Washington's Week 4 road trip to Atlanta with what he later revealed to be a stress fracture in his shin. In the meantime, his practice reps have been capped to make sure he's available for game day, as offensive coordinator Scott Turner revealed Thursday. "He's good. He's not limited. We take care of him during the week, and we make sure he's ready to go, but as of now, once Sunday hits he's ready to go," Turner told John Keim of ESPN.com on Thursday. The result has been 34 carries for 123 yards and three touchdowns and four catches (on four targets) for 24 yards over the last two games.

Gibson (shin) isn't practicing Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson revealed last week that he's been playing through a hairline fracture in his shin, noting that the injury isn't especially painful. It hasn't impacted his workload so far, though Gibson still cedes obvious passing downs to backfield mate J.D. McKissic. In terms of his rushing workload, Gibson has played two games since the shin injury was first listed, putting up a 14-63-1 rushing line against Atlanta and then a 20-60-2 line against New Orleans (with two targets in both games). He gets a nice matchup this week against a floundering Chiefs defense, though there is risk of McKissic getting more work if Patrick Mahomes and Co. jump out to a big start. The shin injury, however, isn't likely to impact Gibson's workload.

Gibson rushed for 60 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in Sunday's 33-22 loss to the Saints. He also caught both his targets for 12 yards.
EDGE Analysis
The running back dealt with a stress fracture in his shin throughout the week in practice, but Gibson still handled his usual workload and scored Washington's only two TDs of the day, punching the ball home from five yards out in the second quarter and from the one-yard line in the fourth. Assuming he's able to keep playing through his injury, Gibson could be poised for another big performance in Week 6 against a soft Kansas City run defense.

Gibson (shin) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson didn't practice fully at any point this week while tending to a stress fracture in his shin, but the injury ultimately won't keep him off the field Sunday. Gibson has been able to play through the issue so far this season, and Washington hasn't provided any indication that the running back's Week 5 workload will be affected as a result. Gibson has logged between 56 and 67 percent of offensive snaps in each of Washington's first four games, averaging 14.7 carries and 2.8 targets per contest.

Gibson (shin), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Per Sam Fortier of The Washington Post, Gibson, who was limited at practice Thursday and Friday, is dealing with a stress fracture in his shin. The injury has been something the running back has been able to play through so far this season, so assuming he incurs no pregame setbacks, Gibson is on track to suit up Week 5. Official confirmation on his status arrive when Washington releases its inactive list approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Gibson, who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against New Orleans, revealed Friday that he's been playing through a stress fracture in his shin, noting that it doesn't hurt badly and doesn't seem too serious, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Between his comments Friday, the fact he played last week and his limited practice participation Thursday and Friday, the young running back appears well on his way to suiting up this Sunday. However, the revelation about a stress fracture adds to concern about his chances of staying on the field throughout the season, not to mention the possibility of an in-game aggravation in the coming weeks. Gibson picked up 16 touches and handled a 55-percent snap share in a close win over the Falcons in Week 4, playing through his stress fracture without any obvious limitations after a mid-week addition to the injury report last Thursday.

Gibson (shin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against New Orleans, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson played through the same shin issue last Sunday following a mid-week addition to the injury report, taking 14 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown while playing 55 percent of the snaps in a 34-30 win over the Falcons. He'll likely play again this weekend, but fantasy managers should still check in Sunday to make sure Gibson isn't on the inactive list ahead of the game's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. He gets a tough matchup against a Saints defense that has allowed just 3.1 yards per carry to date.

Gibson (shin) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gibson is following his practice regimen from a week ago, only a day earlier each time, by following up Wednesday's DNP with limited work Thursday. He seems to be trending in the right direction for Sunday's game against the Saints, while backfield mate J.D. McKissic (ankle) bumped up from limited to full in the first two sessions of Week 5 prep. Friday's injury report will be telling for Gibson's availability and potential to play.
