Football Team's Antonio Gibson (toe) will not require surgery

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (toe) will not require surgery during the offseason.

What It Means:

Gibson had a nagging toe injury that bothered him during the back half of the season, but the exciting rookie told reporters today that he would not need offseason surgery to fix the problem. He also commented that he would like to slim down during the offseason to work on his explosiveness for next year.

Despite barely playing running back in college, Gibson had one of the most impressive rookie seasons in this year's running back class. While the Football Team leaned more heavily on J.D. McKissic in the passing game than expected, Gibson still finished his rookie campaign with 206 touches for 1,042 scrimmage yards and 11 total touchdowns.
