Washington has placed RB J.D. McKissic on IR for the neck injury that stemmed from the same hit that gave him a concussion. With 4 games left in the season -- including tonight's visit to Philadelphia -- McKissic is likely done for the year. That elevates Jaret Patterson to the #2 spot on the depth chart behind Antonio Gibson, who should see workhorse touches the rest of the way. Washington also elevated QB Kyle Shurmur from the practice squad ahead of the Eagles game. He'll back up Garrett Gilbert.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (neck) is out for Tuesday's game vs. the Eagles. RB Antonio Gibson should be back in a feature-back role in that one, despite getting benched after losing a fumble last week.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) has yet to practice this week. He has 2 extra days to clear the protocol after his game vs. the Eagles got moved to Tuesday, but McKissic still doesn’t look likely to play in that one. His absence would be good news for RB Antonio Gibson.

The Washington at Philadelphia game originally scheduled for Sunday has been moved to Tuesday at 7 pm ET due to The Football Team's COVID outbreak, insider Albert Breer reports. This game won't be on the DFS main slate but will still count for Week 15 in season-long leagues. We'll see if any of Washington's players currently on the COVID list are activated by Tuesday. The extra 2 days can't hurt Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, who is recovering from what's been reported as a high-ankle sprain. Washington WR Terry McLaurin and RB J.D. McKissic will have a better chance to clear concussion protocol before kickoff.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Eagles this weekend. Good news for RB Antonio Gibson.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He was able to get in limited workouts last Thursday and Friday, so this looks like a setback. McKissic now seems unlikely to play vs. the Eagles this weekend, but we'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cowboys. Antonio Gibson will continue to dominate backfield work and is an easy RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) won't play vs. the Cowboys today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. McKissic wasn't able to pass all the way through the concussion protocol but figures to do so by Week 15. In the meantime, RB Antonio Gibson will continue to dominate backfield work against Dallas today.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Cowboys. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and still has work to do to be cleared in time for Sunday. We’ll keep you updated on McKissic’s status. His absence would be a boost for RB Antonio Gibson.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a chance to play vs. the Cowboys this weekend, although he still has work to do to clear the protocol. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. That leaves only Jaret Patterson and Wendell Smallwood behind Antonio Gibson in the backfield. Gibson should continue to dominate carries and pick up extra work in the passing game with McKissic out. HC Ron Rivera suggested Friday that Smallwood would take over some of McKissic's role.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic did not practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with a concussion. He'd previously been announced with a neck injury. McKissic seems unlikely to play vs. the Raiders this weekend, which would be a significant boost for RB Antonio Gibson.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic suffered a neck injury in the 4th quarter of Monday night's game vs. the Seahawks and was carted back to the locker room. HC Ron Rivera didn't have an update afterward, but QB Taylor Heinicke said McKissic was walking around the locker room. We'll pass along an update when we get one. McKissic's absence would free up passing-game work for RB Antonio Gibson.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (shin) did not practice on Wednesday. It's unclear if he'll continue playing through the stress fracture in his shin on Sunday vs. the Packers. His absence would mean increased roles for RBs J.D. McKissic and Jaret Patterson.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson was in and out of Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs with trouble with the stress fracture in his shin. "We'll see how he is," HC Ron Rivera said afterward. "We did take him out of the game because he was struggling with it. ... We'll see how he is tomorrow morning." This issue figures to linger throughout the season for Gibson. RBs J.D. McKissic and Jaret Patterson could both be in for expanded roles at some point.

Washington has released RB Peyton Barber. He remained a thorn in RB Antonio Gibson's side throughout the 2nd half of last season and even stole some 1st-team, short-yardage work this preseason. So his departure is a slight bump for Gibson. Rookie Jaret Patterson looks like Washington's #3 RB behind Gibson and J.D. McKissic.

Washington’s RB usage was similar in Week 2 of the preseason to what we saw in the opener. RB Antonio Gibson played 13 of 23 snaps (57%) with the 1st-team offense. But he was pulled for RB J.D. McKissic in obvious passing situations. Per NBC Sports’ John Daigle, Gibson has played just 1 of 9 3rd downs through 2 preseason games; McKissic has played 7. Gibson has racked up 5 targets on 24 preseason snaps, so Washington is clearly scheming him the ball in the passing game. But he’ll need to take over that 3rd-down role in order to hit his ceiling this season.
