Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said he's been impressed with running back Antonio Gibson's pass-catching abilities and athleticism at organized team activities. Rivera mentioned that Gibson entered the league as a pass-catching RB out of Memphis, and he's especially dangerous in space with the ball in his hands. The 24-year-old did manage a career-high 46 catches for 353 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games (six starts) in his third NFL season in 2022, but he also had a career-low 149 carries for 546 yards and three touchdowns on the ground with Brian Robinson in the fold. Washington wants to get Gibson more touches in offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy's system this year, so he could be a pretty valuable RB3/flex in PPR fantasy leagues in 2023.
Washington Commanders guard Andrew Norwell (hip) has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. The move takes him off the 90-man roster, and he's likely to be released once he can pass a physical. Norwell started 16 games for Washington after signing with the team last offseason, but his time with the organization could be coming to an end. There will likely be a market for the 2017 first-team All-Pro's services, at least as a backup offensive lineman.
Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said that linebacker Jamin Davis (knee) had a clean-up procedure on his knee earlier in the offseason and will only take part in walkthroughs at organized team activities this week. Davis suffered a knee injury in Week 17 last year against the Dallas Cowboys and ended the 2022 campaign on Injured Reserve as a result. The 24-year-old wrapped up his second NFL season with 104 tackles (68 solo), three sacks, nine tackles for loss, five QB hits and two fumble recoveries in 16 games (15 starts). Barring a setback with his knee, the team will be hoping that Davis will be ready to go for training camp at the end of July.
Washington Commanders tight end Armani Rogers (Achilles) suffered a non-contact Achilles injury during organized team activities on Tuesday, and there is no timetable for his return. Non-contact injuries are usually never good, so there's a chance Rogers suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. The 25-year-old played in his first NFL season in 2022 in Washington and caught just five of six targets for 64 yards in 11 games played (three starts). If he avoided a serious Achilles injury, Rogers is expected to compete for a roster spot as tight end depth behind Logan Thomas and John Bates. We'll have an update on his condition as soon we know more.
The Washington Commanders placed linebacker Drew White (knee) on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday after waiving him with a failed-physical designation. White was waived last Friday but didn't attract any interest on waivers and will return to Washington. The two sides could still end up parting ways before the 2023 regular season. The Notre Dame alumni has yet to play in an NFL game.
