Antonio Gibson, RB (WAS)

Cleared to play

Gibson (shin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Kansas City, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

He'll continue playing through a hairline fracture, having said himself that the injury isn't really bothering him, though it has limited his practice participation in recent weeks. Gibson took 34 carries for 123 yards and three touchdowns over his past two games, and he could be the clear centerpiece of Washington's offense come Sunday if WR Terry McLaurin (Q/hamstring) is absent or limited. The Chiefs rank bottom five in most efficiency metrics for both pass defense and run defense.
