Antonio Gibson, RB (WAS)

Gets in limited work Thursday

Gibson (shin) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

After sitting out Wednesday's session, Gibson has begun a slow ramp-up as Washington prepares for Sunday's visit to Green Bay. It's a positive sign for the running back, who has been playing through a stress fracture in his shin since Week 4. Gibson's offensive snap share suffered this past Sunday against the Chiefs -- a season-low 40 percent -- but he still had 12 touches, while J.D. McKissic had 16 on the other 60 percent.
