Washington running back Antonio Gibson is set to play in Washington's Week 4 game against Atlanta, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. 

A shin injury led Gibson to miss Thursday's practice and him being placed on the injured list. Gibson got in a limited session in on Friday and appears to avoid missing his first game for Washington since Week 14 against Seattle during his stellar rookie season. 

Gibson got off to a great start to the season with a 20-rush, 90-yard performance against the Chargers and followed that up with a 13-rush, 69-yard outing against the Giants in Week 2. Overall, Gibson has produced 190 yards on 45 rushes and 95 yards on six receptions.

But with a bigger deficit against the Bills, Gibson's involvement trailed off as Ron Rivera was forced to go to Taylor Heinicke in the passing game. With a shin injury coming into this one, look for J.D. McKissic to help out a bit more with Gibson's workload.
