Gibson lackluster in crowded backfield

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson continued to lead the team in carries in Sunday's loss to Dallas. But his 13 attempts merely matched the combined total for J.D. McKissic (8) and Jonathan Williams (5). Williams had played just 3 total snaps through the 1st 3 weeks. He only played 6 against the Cowboys but worked in for a carry on the team's 1st possession. Gibson wound up with 49 rushing yards (3.8 per carry) and 3 catches for 14 yards among 3 targets. McKissic added 40 yards rushing (5.0) and 3 catches for 16 yards on 4 targets. The team reportedly plans to activate RB Brian Robinson from IR ahead of a Week 5 meeting with the Titans. We'll see what HC Ron Rivera reveals about the planned path for his backfield.
