RB: Antonio Gibson

Washington head coach Ron Rivera said Antonio Gibson underwent an MRI on his injured shin.

Gibson was sidelined during the fourth quarter of the Football Team's Week 6 loss to the Chiefs. He spent much of the game cycling in and out of the lineup, riding the stationary bike and getting treatment for his injured shin. Gibson drafters should emotionally prepare themselves for an absence. How long that absence will be is anyone's guess in a seemingly lost season for Washington. Jaret Patterson, who would likely handle most early-down touches in Gibson's absence, should be a top waiver add this week.
