RB: Antonio Gibson

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Antonio Gibson (shin) is expected to play in Week 5 against the Saints.

Gibson is dealing with a stress fracture in his shin but he's already played through it at least once. He should continue to see his normal workload versus the Saints this week. J.D. McKissic remains involved in the offense, keeping Gibson from being a locked-in RB1 option. Even with McKissic stealing touches, Gibson has managed 16.8 touches per game, most of which have come on the ground. He projects as a high-end RB2 versus the Saints this week.
