Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice, sidelined on Thursday and limited again on Friday. We’ll get Washington’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday, but it’s safe to assume that Gibson will be at less than 100% if he plays vs. New York.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) sat out practice on Thursday. Gibson was limited on Wednesday, so this is a step back for the 3rd-year man. We'll see if he's able to suit up on Friday.

With RB Travis Etienne out for most of the game, JaMycal Hasty took over the lead role. He predictably struggled on the ground, gaining just 28 yards on 12 carries against a tough Ravens run D. Hasty caught all 5 of his targets for 67 yards, though, including a 28-yard score. Snoop Cooper operated as the 2nd RB -- 3 carries, 11 yards, 0 targets -- with newly acquired RB Darrell Henderson inactive. We'll see about Etienne's outlook for Week 13 (and beyond), as well as Henderson's role going forward.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) did not practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. That leaves WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore and Justin Watson behind Smith-Schuster.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson carried just 7 times (for 36 yards) as his team went pass-heavy in Thursday night's loss to the Vikings. He made up for it on the receiving side, though, catching 9 balls for 76 yards among a team-high 10 targets. New England dropped back 42 times in the game vs. just 13 running plays. We'd bet on that swinging back in the other direction at least some in a Week 13 home date with the Bills. We'll see about the status of RB Damien Harris for that one, after he left the Vikings loss with a thigh injury.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Rams, barring a setback between now and then.

Pats RB Rhamondre Stevenson was upstaged by Damien Harris in a Week 11 win over the Jets. Harris rushed 8 times for 65 yards, topping Stevenson’s 26 yards on 15 attempts. Sunday marked Harris’ first action since Week 8 (illness). But he certainly looked healthy in this one, earning PFF’s 4th highest rushing grade. Stevenson, meanwhile, ranked 2nd to last, hurt by 0 missed tackles forced on the ground and 1.7 YPC. Stevenson still came through in fantasy with 6 grabs for 56 yards, including 1 impressive display of power. It’s worth noting that the Jets represented a tough matchup for RBs. Thursday turns up a Vikings squad that was just smoked by Dallas RBs. On the year, Minnesota ranks mid-pack in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson played twice as many snaps as Brian Robinson Jr. (46-23) in Sunday's win over the Texans. He carried 18 times for 72 yards (4.0 per rush) and caught all 3 of his targets for 31 more. Robinson carried 15 times for 57 yards (3.8) and didn't see a target. The team's only rushing TD went to WR Curtis Samuel, who carried twice for 18 yards for the game. Week 12 holds another high-upside matchup with the Falcons.

Browns QB Jacoby Brissett threw for 324 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Bills in Detroit. It was his 1st 300-yard game of the season and just his 2nd with multiple TD passes. WR Amari Cooper led the way with 8 catches for 113 yards and 2 TDs on 12 targets. WR Donovan Peoples-Jones snagged the other TD among 5 receptions for 61 yards. Brissett gets 1 more start -- at home against the Buccaneers -- before Deshaun Watson becomes available in Week 13.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) is out for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. No surprise after he sustained his 4th documented concussion last week. We'll see if Smith-Schuster can get cleared for Week 12. With WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen, illness) on IR, Kansas City is down to WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson and Skyy Moore. See where they sit in the Week 11 WR Rankings.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He has very little chance to be cleared in time for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. Smith-Schuster should be on fantasy benches.

Chiefs WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) and Mecole Hardman (abdomen, illness) missed Wednesday's practice. Valdes-Scantling should be fine for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers, but Smith-Schuster and Hardman are iffy. Their absences would likely mean a significant role for WR Kadarius Toney.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster took a hit to the head in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. He'll certainly be checked for a concussion and is unlikely to return to this one. We'll update Smith-Schuster's status when we know more. It's worth noting that he's already sustained 3 documented concussions.

Update: Smith-Schuster is in the concussion protocol and has been ruled out.

With RB J.D. McKissic out, RBs Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson Jr. split opportunities almost evenly. Gibson played 8 more snaps, but Robinson beat him by 2 carries and trailed by just 1 target. Robinson posted a 13-44 rushing line and caught both targets (for minus-6 yards). Gibson ran for 36 yards on his 11 carries and caught 2 of 3 targets for 11 yards. A Week 10 matchup with the Eagles doesn't look great for either player. Bet on the Commanders falling behind, though, which would favor Gibson's superior receiving.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson got no meaningful boost from Damien Harris being out (illness) in Sunday's win over the Colts. Stevenson rushed 15 times for 60 yards and added 3 catches for 10 among a team-high 7 targets. He did claim the team's only TD reception. RB J.J. Taylor ran 2nd in the backfield, gaining just 9 yards on 10 carries and catching his lone target for 8 yards.

Patriots DL Deatrich Wise (ankle), S Kyle Dugger (ankle) and CB Jack Jones (illness) are active for today's game against the Colts.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson led the team with 7 catches in Sunday's win over the Colts. He snared all of his 7 targets (2nd on the team) for 58 yards and the team's lone receiving TD. Gibson tied J.D. McKissic for the playing-time lead in Washington's backfield. Brian Robinson Jr. still led in carries, but took his 8 rushes for just 20 yards. Gibson ran 7 times for 19 yards; McKissic 2 for 6 yards. Washington gets a soft Minnesota defense in Week 9.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson continued to work well ahead of Damien Harris in Sunday's win over the Jets. He carried 16 times for 71 yards (4.4 per rush) and caught 7 balls for 72 yards among 8 targets. Stevenson led the team in receiving yards and trailed only WR Jakobi Meyers in targets (12) and receptions (9). Harris ran for just 37 yards on 11 carries (3.4) and caught both of his targets for 15 yards. New England gets the Colts in Week 9, with the bye following.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (shoulder) and CB Jonathan Jones (ankle) are active for today's game against the Jets.

The Patriots on Saturday downgraded S Kyle Dugger (ankle) to out for Sunday's game against the Jets.
