Friday update: Antonio Gibson got in a second straight limited practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday with a shin injury. He is a good bet to play, but keep an eye out for more on him Sunday morning.
Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson returned to practice on Thursday ahead of their Week 6 home matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. He was listed as a limited participant as he continues to work through a nagging shin injury that he’s dealt with for the past few weeks.
Gibson returned to the field after missing practice on Wednesday. Even though he got limited action on Thursday, WFT offensive coordinator Scott Turner indicated that Gibson hasn’t been slowed down by the injury, and gradually easing him on the field throughout the week is just a measure of precaution to keep him fresh for Sunday’s.
Scott Turner on if the shin limits Antonio Gibson: "No. 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."— John Keim (@john_keim) October 14, 2021
Note: Kansas City the 29th-ranked run defense
Fantasy football implications
The shin injury hasn’t slowed Gibson down as he has remained a must-start in fantasy leagues despite the ailment. He provided two touchdowns in Washington’s 33-22 loss to the Saints last week and should put up another really good outing against a Chiefs defense that is proving to be one of the worst in the league.
