Stuck in small role

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Gibson had two carries for nine yards while catching all three of his targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 35-33 win over Denver.

Gibson was limited to just five touches a week after receiving four, giving way to starter Brian Robinson who had a two-touchdown day. The veteran backup was able to break off a 36-yard reception out of the backfield, but was otherwise a non-factor. Gibson has provided fantasy value in the past while serving as Washington's starter, but he is an unappealing option against Buffalo next Sunday in his current role.

Gets four touches, loses fumble

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Gibson had three carries for nine yards and caught his lone target for 10 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Cardinals.

Gibson got his first carry early in the second quarter, then lost a fumble on his second carry a few minutes later. His next touch was a reception midway through the fourth quarter, though he did play 35 percent of Washington's offensive snaps. Starting RB Brian Robinson played 61 percent, taking 19 carries for 59 yards and catching one of two targets for a seven-yard touchdown. Adding to the bad news for Gibson, rookie sixth-round pick Chris Rodriguez took three snaps and had three carries for seven yards. Gibson should fare somewhat better Week 2 at Denver, but it isn't a great matchup and the workload split appears solidly in Robinson's favor.

Gets seven touches, one TD

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-21

Gibson had four carries for 15 yards and three catches for 10 yards and a touchdown in Monday's preseason matchup with the Ravens.

Brian Robinson was the starter for a second straight week and again worked in a near-50/50 split with Gibson. The Commanders played their starters for the first half and now have kept them on the field for seven drives this preseason, with Robinson getting 13 opportunities (eight carries, five targets) and Gibson seeing 12 (six carries, six targets). There hasn't been a clear split like last year in terms of Robinson taking early downs while Gibson handles passing situations, but it is possible OC Eric Bieniemy switches that up some once the regular season begins Sept. 10 against Arizona.

Splits work with Robinson

Gibson carried the ball twice for seven yards and caught two of three targets for 13 yards in Friday's preseason win over the Browns.

The Commanders used their first-team offense for three possessions despite wet field conditions, and during those drives Gibson wound up seeing one more touch than Brian Robinson (three carries for 16 yards). While neither back was effective, Gibson becomes a more appealing fantasy option if new offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy continues to split the workload relatively equally between them rather than leaning more heavily on Robinson.

Expects to be third down back

Gibson said Wednesday that he'll be in a "third down back" role with the Commanders in 2023, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

Gibson is expected to operate as Brian Robinson's top reserve option at running back this season, but he seems likely to be used on passing downs. The 25-year-old produced 546 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 149 carries while also catching a career-high 46 passes for 353 yards and two scores over 15 games in 2022.

Participating in OTAs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-05-24

Gibson (knee/foot) was spotted practicing Wednesday, John Keim of reports.

Gibson played through a foot fracture last December but then missed the final two weeks of the season after spraining his knee. He had surgery on his foot in the first week of January and seems to be back healthy for spring practices. The Commanders didn't add competition for Gibson's passing-down role this offseason, as the lone new face in the backfield at the start of OTAs is a sixth-round pick, Chris Rodriguez, who caught 20 passes in 40 games at Kentucky. Brian Robinson may get another shot as the lead runner, but Gibson is also a candidate for that role if anything goes wrong, having averaged 214 carries for 916 yards and nine touchdowns over his first two pro seasons. The 2020 third-round pick then had career highs for targets, catches, receiving yards and yards per target in 2022, but it was accompanied by new lows for carries, rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and yards per carry.

Has surgery on foot

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-06

Gibson (knee) underwent surgery Thursday to address a fracture in his foot, John Keim of reports.

Gibson played through the fracture for most of December but then missed the final two games of the regular season after spraining his knee Week 16. He's expected to recover in time for offseason workouts, at which point he'll be in the fourth and final season of his rookie contract. Rookie back Brian Robinson, meanwhile, will miss Week 18 with a knee injury that isn't considered especially serious. Jonathan Williams and Jaret Patterson are Washington's healthy backs for the season finale, while Robinson and Gibson should be ready to go for OTAs.

Shut down for Week 18

Washington placed Gibson (knee/foot) on injured reserve Thursday, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

Though Gibson's pair of lower-body injuries aren't believed to be long-term concerns, the Commanders will err on the side of caution by holding him out of Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys. By moving Gibson to IR, the Commanders were able to free up a spot on the 53-man roster for practice-squad signee Jaret Patterson, who will add depth to the backfield behind Brian Robinson (knee) and Jonathan Williams. Gibson concludes the 2022 season with 546 rushing yards (on a career-worst 3.7 yards per carry) and three touchdowns to go with 46 catches for 353 yards and two more scores over his 15 appearances.

Not practicing

Gibson (knee/foot) didn't practice Wednesday, Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Gibson has been dealing with the foot injury for more than a month without missing a game, but the knee sprain he suffered Week 16 against San Francisco rendered him inactive for the Week 17 loss to Cleveland. With Washington having been eliminated from playoff contention, Gibson may be in line to sit out Sunday's season finale versus Dallas, though it's perhaps still possible he plays if he returns to practice Thursday or Friday.
