Turf toe sidelines rookie, JD McKissic gets bump in snaps
The Washington Football Team is likely to be without impressive rookie running back Antonio Gibson as it tries to keep pace atop the NFC East. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Gibson was diagnosed with a painful case of turf toe, which might knock him out of Sunday’s contest versus the San Francisco 49ers, per a source informed of the situation.

Nerdy Football Analysis: J.D. McKissic would be in line for a larger share of the workload. The pass-catching back played nearly 73 percent of the snaps when Gibson left early Monday. Peyton Barber will likely play the role of inside-runner and short-yardage back until Gibson returns.
