Washington WR Dyami Brown is expected to miss Sunday's game vs. the Broncos with a "minor" knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown is getting an MRI on Monday, but it sounds like the team expects him back after the Week 9 bye. We'll see if Washington gets WRs Curtis Samuel and/or Cam Sims back this weekend.

Washington lead CB William Jackson III is inactive for today's game against the Packers, as expected. That only helps the outlook for the Green Bay passing attack -- especially WR Davante Adams.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (shin) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. He remained limited in practice this week, although ESPN’s Adam Schefter suggested this morning that the stress fracture in Gibson’s shin is improving. He still comes with elevated risk in Week 7 fantasy lineups.

Top Washington CB William Jackson III (knee) will be inactive for today's game against the Packers. That only enhances an already strong matchup for Packers WR Davante Adams.

Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) is still "weeks away" from returning and not a lock to return at all this season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fitzpatrick's original timeline had him returning in late October, but it sounds like his recovery has gone slower than expected. Fitzpatrick is still on crutches, per Rapoport, and is expected to get another MRI on that hip this coming week. QB Taylor Heinicke will remain Washington's starter for the foreseeable future -- and potentially the rest of the season.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson is expected to play vs. the Packers today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Gibson "has shown improvement and is feeling better lately" with the stress fracture in his shin, Schefter adds. Gibson remains a risky fantasy option today after being unable to finish last week's game.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (quad) is not listed on the final injury report. He got in just 2 limited practices this week but should be ready for another full-time role vs. the Packers on Sunday.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (shin) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Packers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and confirmed that he expects to play through that stress fracture in his shin on Sunday. Gibson is a high-risk fantasy play.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) isn't listed on the final injury report. He was a full-go in Friday's practice and will play his usual role against the Packers this weekend. WRs Curtis Samuel (groin) and Cam Sims (hamstring) are out again for Week 7.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (quad) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We haven't heard any concern about his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Packers, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He seemingly made it out of last week's loss to the Chiefs without a setback and should be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Packers.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (shin) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It looks like he's going to try to again play through that stress fracture in his shin on Sunday vs. the Packers. Gibson is a high-risk fantasy play after lasting just 23 snaps last week.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He ended up playing 95% of the offensive snaps in last week's loss to the Chiefs. McLaurin should play vs. the Packers on Sunday, but it'd be nice to see him practice the next 2 days.

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 TE Ricky Seals-Jones (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any other details at this point, but we didn't notice RSJ get hurt in last week's loss to the Chiefs. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

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 RB Antonio Gibson is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs with a shin injury. Gibson, of course, has been playing through a stress fracture in that shin. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Gibson returned.

Washington WR Dyami Brown (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He joins Terry McLaurin, Adam Humphries, Deandre Carter, Antonio Gandy-Golden and Dax Milne in Washington’s WR corps.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (shin) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He handled 20 carries and 2 targets last week, despite playing through that stress fracture in his shin. Gibson is an upside fantasy play vs. Kansas City’s porous run defense.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He was added to the injury report and listed as a non-participant in Friday’s practice. McLaurin did work off to the side on Friday, though, and HC Ron Rivera said afterward that they were operating more under "an abundance of caution.” ESPN's John Keim reported that McLaurin was “feeling good” on Saturday. He obviously comes with added risk in Week 6 fantasy lineups. But we’d have a tough time sitting McLaurin in this dream matchup vs. the Chiefs.
