Washington Football Team fans and fantasy owners everywhere are likely breathing a sigh a relief as running back Antonio Gibson was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice according to Ben Standig of The Athletic.

Gibson was listed as a limited participant on Monday’s estimated practice report after hurting his shoulder late in the team’s Week One loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.  The sophomore carried the ball 20 times and had three catches in that game and head coach Ron Rivera does not sound like he thinks he will need to cut back on Gibson’s workload.  “I think he’s ready to handle it, and it was also the flow of the game,” Rivera said.

With quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick out 6-8 weeks with a hip injury, Washington's offense will likely lean on Gibson's legs heavily in the next couple of months to stay in the NFC East division race starting Thursday night against the New York Giants.
