Gibbs rushed 11 times for 54 yards while securing four of eight targets for 19 yards during Thursday's 29-22 loss to Green Bay.
After seeing two more carries than David Montgomery did in the first game after Detroit's Week 9 bye, Gibbs has trailed his counterpart by four carries in each of the past two weeks. While the Alabama product has still been seeing more touches per game lately thanks to a huge role in the passing game -- and he could have had a more productive day had Jared Goff been more accurate on a couple of Gibbs' looks -- Gibbs' upside is undoubtedly capped by Montgomery, who racked up his eighth touchdown in seven games this season. The Detroit offense will look to keep fostering two productive running backs when the Lions reconvene for a Week 13 road matchup with a Saints defense that has allowed the fourth-fewest receptions to running backs in 2023.

Gibbs rushed eight times for 36 yards and a touchdown while catching all six of his targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 31-26 win over the Bears.
Gibbs got the Lions on the board in the second quarter with a two-yard rushing touchdown. That was the fifth rushing touchdown in the last four games for the 2023 first-round pick after Gibbs opened his career with a four-game touchdown drought. Gibbs will look to extend his touchdown streak to five games on Thanksgiving against the Packers as part of Detroit's one-two punch in the backfield alongside David Montgomery.
Gibbs carried the ball 14 times for 77 yards and two touchdowns and caught three of five targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 41-38 win over the Chargers.
While David Montgomery returned from a rib injury Sunday and led the Lions with 116 rushing yards and a score of his own, Gibbs wound up seeing five more touches while nearly matching his scrimmage yardage total. The rookie also produced more points, scoring on a pair of one-yard TD plunges in the first and second quarters. Gibbs and Montgomery seems likely to remain in a timeshare while both are healthy, but both could come up big again in Week 11 against the Bears.
Lions head coach Dan Campbell indicated Monday that Gibbs could see an uptick in his work in the team's backfield rotation during the second half of the season, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. "I don't think necessarily, talking to you right now, that I see Gibbs getting 65 plays. I don't see that," Campbell said. "But he's going to get his fair share now. We know what we can be and he's growing, so I think it'll be a little bit by committee and make sure we get those guys touches. Gibbs'll get his touches."
After missing two straight games with a hamstring injury, Gibbs returned to action Week 7 and took hold of a lead role in the absence of David Montgomery (rib). In a loss to the Ravens in Week 7 and a win over the Raiders in Week 8, Gibbs played 86 and 69 percent of the Lions' snaps on offense, respectively, compiling 220 yards and two touchdowns (on 37 carries) and 14 receptions for 95 yards (on 15 targets) between the two contests. Though Montgomery was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday coming out of the Lions' Week 9 bye and appears poised to play Sunday against the Chargers, Campbell's comments suggest that Montgomery could cede more work to the Gibbs than he had on the occasions when both were available in three of the Lions' first four games. In those three games, Gibbs still averaged just shy of 12 touches (7.3 carries, 4.3 receptions), but the rookie's ability to handle even heavier workloads over the last two contests without sacrificing much efficiency might be reason enough for Campbell to have him split reps with Montgomery in relatively equitable fashion moving forward.
Gibbs rushed 26 times for 152 yards and a touchdown while bringing in all five targets for 37 yards in the Lions' 26-14 win over the Raiders on Monday night.
It was milestone night for Gibbs, who set a new career high in rushing yards while also recording his first home touchdown via a 27-yard run late in the third quarter. That scoring scamper served as Gibbs' longest run of the night, underscoring how consistently efficient he was throughout the contest. David Montgomery (ribs) figures to be healthy by the time the Lions come out of their Week 9 bye, so how the division of labor will shake out between him and Montgomery in Week 10 against the Chargers will be something to monitor.
Gibbs rushed the ball 11 times for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Ravens. He added nine receptions on 10 targets for 58 yards.
Gibbs got a chance to lead the Detroit backfield with David Montgomery (ribs) sidelined, and he delivered 126 total yards. He found room to run difficult for most of the game, though that changed early in the fourth quarter -- with the outcome decided -- when he scored his first career touchdown from 21 yards away. Gibbs' volume as a receiver was also notable, as he entered the contest with only 18 targets combined across his first four games. It's unclear whether Montgomery will be back for the Lions' Week 8 matchup against the Raiders, but Gibbs could be in line for another significant workload.
Gibbs (hamstring) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest at Baltimore.
Gibbs kicked off Week 7 prep with back-to-back limited practices, but coach Dan Campbell said Friday that the rookie running back is "gonna be a go" for Sunday following a two-game absence due to a hamstring issue, according to Colton Pouncy of The Athletic. With the Lions' top backfield option David Montgomery (ribs) ruled out and reserve Craig Reynolds (hamstring/toe) questionable to play, Gibbs doesn't have many obstacles to a huge workload this weekend, which could yield fruit as he's averaged 4.6 yards on his 39 carries and recorded 14 catches (on 18 targets) for 70 yards in four appearances.
Coach Dan Campbell said Friday that Gibbs (hamstring) is "gonna be a go" for Sunday's game in Baltimore, Colton Pouncy of The Athletic reports.
Gibbs likely will return from a two-game absence and take on a role as Detroit's lead back, as David Montgomery (ribs) hasn't practiced since his early exit from last week's win over Tampa Bay. The Lions may still opt to list Gibbs as questionable on the final injury report Friday afternoon, and there's also some question about the backup situation with Craig Reynolds (hamstring/toe) banged up as well.
Gibbs (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.
While the Lions' No. 1 running back David Montgomery (ribs) again was absent from drills Thursday, Gibbs maintained his activity level from Wednesday's walkthrough. At the same time, fellow back Craig Reynolds (hamstring/toe) had a cap on his reps after sitting out the first session of Week 7 prep. Gibbs and Reynolds appear to be the best bets among the trio to be available Sunday at Baltimore, but ultimately Friday's practice report will indicate whether one or both have a designation for that contest.
