Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson, listed as questionable because of a foot injury, is expected to play against the New York Giants on Sunday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter despite limited practice work all week.

The news isn't as firm for Gibson's teammate, defensive end Chase Young, who is also listed as questionable because of a knee injury. He will work out pregame in New Jersey to see whether he can play, a source told Schefter, but with a bye upcoming for the Commanders, Young might sit in order to have two more weeks to recover.

The December matchup between NFC East rivals didn't seem so important when the NFL schedule was released, but the Giants are 7-4 and on a two-game skid, while the Commanders are 7-5 and riding a three-game winning streak.

Gibson, Washington's leading rusher, has 476 yards this season on 130 carries across 12 games. He also has three touchdowns and no fumbles. Last week, in a 19-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons, Gibson had 32 yards on nine carries, and three receptions for 22 yards.
