Not playing Week 18
McKissic (concussion) wasn't among the players added to Washington's roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's season finale against the Giants.
Considering Washington never designated McKissic to return from injured reserve following his move off the active roster Dec. 21, the decision not to activate him for Week 18 hardly comes as a surprise. Washington will have Antonio Gibson, Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams as its available running backs for the finale.
