Cleared for Week 18
Gibson (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Giants, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
It is possible Washington scales back his workload in a game without playoff implications, especially after Jaret Patterson's solid showing last week when Gibson was on the COVID list, but it's also possible the second-year pro simply returns to his usual dominance of the rushing workload. Whatever the case, Gibson will be out there this Sunday, presumably starting and working as the lead back in a matchup of disappointed division rivals. He's 109 rushing yards away from 1,000 on the year, and he needs one more TD to reach double digits for a second time in two seasons.
