The Washington Football Team placed running back Antonio Gibson on the COVID-19 list for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Gibson leads the team in rushing yards (89) and rushing touchdowns (6) this season. He’s also third in passes sack with 41 and fifth in receiving yards with 289.
Washington is on the brink of elimination after losing three straight games and the loss of its star running back could be the final blow to its aspirations to advance to the NFL playoffs.
The fate of the team is not only in his hands, since it will depend on other results to buy his ticket to the postseason.
