Jaret Patterson, RB (WAS)

Returns to backup role

Patterson rushed six times for 21 yards and brought in both targets for 14 yards in Washington's 22-7 win over the Giants on Sunday.

Patterson was back in a complementary role with Antonio Gibson available Sunday, a week after posting 98 total yards against the Eagles. The rookie showed some promise in limited action in 2021 by rushing for 266 yards and adding another 73 through the air on 11 receptions, and he appears set to compete for a potentially larger role behind Gibson in training camp this summer.
