Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (concussion) is out for Sunday’s finale vs. the Giants. That leaves rookie John Bates as the team’s top TE. He’d be a desperation season-long play but is a viable cheap option in DFS.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He came off the COVID list earlier in the day and seems on track to play vs. the Giants this weekend.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson has been activated from the COVID list. He should be back for Sunday's finale vs. the Giants, but we'll have to see what Gibson does in practice this week. He's battled through a bunch of different injuries this season.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones is in the concussion protocol, HC Ron Rivera said Monday. It sounds like RSJ escaped further injury after being carted off the field during the Week 17 loss to the Eagles, but he's unlikely to play in this weekend's finale vs. the Giants. Seals-Jones absence would leave TE John Bates as a near every-down player.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones was knocked out in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Eagles with a neck injury. He collided with a cameraman on the sidelines and had to be carted off the field. We'll update RSJ's status when we know more. TE John Bates should be a full-time player for Washington the rest of this one.

Washington DE Montez Sweat is inactive for today's game against the Eagles. He has been away from the team this week following the shooting death of his brother.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson was not activated from the COVID list on Saturday and will miss Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. Washington promoted RB Wendell Smallwood from the practice squad. He'll join Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams in the backfield.

Washington DE Montez Sweat is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He has been away from the team this week after his brother was shot and killed in Virginia. We'll check his status Sunday. Washington will be without CB William Jackson III for the 2nd straight game because of a calf injury.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson has been placed on the COVID list. He's a long shot to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. Gibson's absence will leave Washington with RBs Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams on the active roster. RB Wendell Smallwood will likely be elevated from the practice squad. We'd expect Patterson and Williams to split most of the rushing work, with Smallwood potentially playing on passing downs. In other words, it's a situation to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (hip) did not practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or just got the day off. We'll learn more tomorrow.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Notably, though, Gibson's toe is no longer listed on the injury report. We'll see about the hip, but it's possible that Gibson is healthier than he's been in a while for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles.

Washington HC Ron Rivera said Monday that QB Taylor Heinicke will start this weekend's game vs. the Eagles but that QB Kyle Allen will "probably" play. Heinicke has bottomed out in his last 2 appearances, completing just 38.3% of his passes for 5.2 yards per attempt. This is obviously a situation to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Washington has activated LB Cole Holcomb from the COVID list. That should have him ready to face the Eagles on Sunday. Holcomb collected 10 tackles in the Tuesday-night loss at Philly in Week 15.

Washington LB Jamin Davis is inactive for tonight's game against the Cowboys. According to Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post, Davis "came to team doctors pre-game with symptoms that could be in line with the coronavirus. There wasn't enough time to process a test before the deadline for submitting inactives, so he was deactivated out of an abundance of caution." With Cole Holcomb already on the COVID list, Washington is now down to David Mayo, Jordan Kunaszyk, Milo Eifler and De'Jon Harris at LB. If you're desperate for a fill-in, Mayo is the most experienced of the group.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (toe) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Cowboys. He didn’t practice all week after aggravating his turf toe issue this past Tuesday. Gibson carries elevated risk in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Washington QB Taylor Heinicke is active and will start against the Cowboys tonight. He was activated from the COVID list on Thursday. Heinicke is just a low-end QB2 vs. Dallas’ 4th-ranked QB defense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that there's "some optimism" Washington RB Antonio Gibson (toe) will be able to play vs. the Cowboys tonight. Gibson remains a game-time decision, Rapoport adds. The late kickoff makes this a tough situation for fantasy owners. We won't get Washington's inactives until 7 pm ET. If you're hoping to use Gibson, add RB Jaret Patterson as the fall-back option if Gibson ends up inactive.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Cowboys. He didn’t practice all week and seems to be in real danger of missing this one. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. If Gibson can’t play against Dallas, Washington would be down to RBs Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams.

Washington placed S Landon Collins on IR Friday for his foot injury. With just 3 games left in the regular season, that means Collins is droppable in all redraft formats.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (toe) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played through this injury on Tuesday night's loss to the Eagles but appears to be in danger of missing this Sunday night's game vs. the Cowboys. With RB J.D. McKissic on IR, Gibson's absence would leave Washington with RBs Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams.
