Washington’s McLaurin and Gibson limited in Wednesday’s practice
Two crucial pieces of Washington’s offense could not practice fully on Wednesday. Terry McLaurin is still dealing with an ankle issue despite playing through the injury in Washington’s division-clinching win against the Eagles Sunday night. It’s hard to imagine the 1,000-yard receiver does not suit up for Washington in what would be his first playoff game when the team faces Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
Antonio Gibson, even being at practice Wednesday was a good sign after Washington’s lead back missed Tuesday’s practice. Gibson is nursing a toe injury that clearly continued to affect him in the team’s Week 17 game despite turning it up in the fourth quarter. The 22-year-old missed two games with the same issue in mid-December. Turf-toe is one of those things that lingers longer than expected, and while Gibson will likely play this weekend, his status is worth following up until kickoff.
