Cut by Green Bay

The Packers cut Bibbs on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Bibbs caught on with Green Bay at the end of last season and took four touches for 15 yards Week 17. He proved himself competent on passing downs during his time in Washington, so he should find a chance to compete for a roster spot with another team this summer. The Packers are left with Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, Dexter Williams and Tra Carson (ribs) in their backfield, apparently prioritizing depth at other positions. They do have a 231-pound fullback, Malcolm Johnson, who played wide receiver and tight end in college.

Makes Packers debut

Bibbs had one carry for two yards and three receptions for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Analysis: Bibbs saw action for the first time as a Packer and, with Aaron Jones (knee) out, worked as the backup behind Jamaal Williams. Bibbs suited up for two games with the Packers and 10 with the Redskins in 2018, and finished with 21 carries for the second year in a row. It remains to be seen if he will be back with the Packers in 2019, but if he is, he will compete for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart behind Jones and Williams.

Heads to Green Bay

Bibbs was claimed off waivers by the Packers on Monday.

Analysis: Bibbs was waived by the Redskins over the weekend and didn't have to wait long before joining a new team. The 25-year-old could quickly find himself as the No. 2 running back behind Jamaal Williams, as starter Aaron Jones is nursing an MCL injury, though the severity of the issue has yet to be disclosed. Bibbs had 20 carries for 101 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games before parting ways with Washington.

Released Saturday

Bibbs was released by the Redskins on Saturday.

Analysis: It's a bit of a surprise to see the Redskins jettison Bibbs, but the move likely indicates Chris Thompson is finally healthy after missing multiple weeks earlier in the year with a ribs injury. The move also opens the door for unheralded third-year running Byron Marshall to see some time in the event Thompson is unable to handle his usual workload.

Unavailable Sunday

Bibbs (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Giants, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Bibbs is in street clothes for the first time since his promotion to the 53-man roster on Sept. 22, the best indication the Redskins are confident Chris Thompson is back to full health. As long as Thompson and Adrian Peterson are game-ready, Bibbs likely will be a healthy scratch on gameday.

Manages just six yards

Bibbs took one carry for no gain and caught two of three targets for six yards in Sunday's 23-21 loss to Houston.

Analysis: Filling on for Chris Thompson (ribs) on passing downs once again, Bibbs fell shy of 50 scrimmage yards for the fourth week in a row. The change from Alex Smith (leg) to Colt McCoy under center doesn't seem likely to spark Bibbs' production in a Thanksgiving day matchup with the Cowboys,

Gains 41 yards on five touches

Bibbs played 24 of 58 snaps on offense in Sunday's 16-3 win at Tampa Bay, taking three carries for 28 yards and catching two of four targets for 13 yards.

Analysis: Bibbs continued in his role on passing downs with Chris Thompson (ribs) out for another week, while Adrian Peterson piled up 21 touches on 34 snaps. Bibbs has been a competent replacement, but the passing-down role doesn't demand touches unless Thompson is in the lineup. It's unclear if Thompson will make it back for Week 11 against the Texans.

Scores third TD of season

Bibbs took three carries for 20 yards and a touchdown and caught his only target for a 15-yard gain in Sunday's 38-14 loss to Atlanta.

Analysis: Bibbs filled in for Chris Thompson (ribs) on passing downs, playing 21 of 69 snaps (30 percent) on offense and hitting paydirt for the third time this season. He then missed out on an opportunity to pad his stat line in garbage time, as Washington turned to Samaje Perine for the meaningless final drive. Perine has some deep-league appeal for a Week 10 matchup at Tampa Bay, but only if Thompson is forced to miss another game.

Playing Sunday

Bibbs (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday versus the Falcons, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: The Redskins ruled out Chris Thompson (ribs) and entered the weekend with Bibbs listed as questionable. After opting not to activate fellow running back Byron Marshall (knee) from injured reserve Saturday, Bibbs' odds to play just a week removed from suffering a separated shoulder improved. However, who will spell Adrian Peterson between Bibbs and Samaje Perine remains to be seen.

Carries questionable tag into weekend

Bibbs (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: After separating his left shoulder in the Week 8 win over the Giants, Bibbs surprisingly participated in all three of the Redskins' practices this week, though he was limited in all of them. That activity still might be enough for Bibbs to suit up Sunday, though it wouldn't be surprising if the Redskins reinstated Byron Marshall (knee) from injured reserve to fortify the team's depth out of the backfield. If Bibbs is ruled out this weekend or limited significantly and if Marshall isn't activated, the Redskins would be without a quality pass-catching running back, as Adrian Peterson and Samaje Perine aren't ideally suited to help out in that capacity. The team's top receiving specialist out of the backfield, Chris Thompson (ribs), has already been ruled out for Week 9.

Manages limited practice

Bibbs (shoulder) is listed as a limited participant on the Wednesday injury report.

Analysis: Bibbs separated his shoulder during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Giants, logging 10 snaps on special teams and just one on offense with Chris Thompson (ribs) back in the lineup. There may be opportunity for a significant role once again, as Thompson was held out of practice Wednesday after suffering another injury Sunday. The situation becomes more interesting once we account for the matchup with an Atlanta defense that's given up 8.9 receptions per game to running backs. Of course, the Falcons also have surrendered 4.8 yards per carry and nine rushing touchdowns, so we can expect a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson above all else.

Separates shoulder Sunday

Bibbs suffered a separated left shoulder during Sunday's 20-13 win against the Giants, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Washington's backfield had the services of Chris Thompson for the first time since Week 5, relegating Bibbs to one offensive snaps and 10 on special teams. There's little doubt Bibbs will be listed on the injury report this week, but even if he continues to suit up on gamedays, there's little room for him to receive touches behind Adrian Peterson and Thompson.

Oct 29, 2018 5:24 PM EST

Scores receiving touchdown versus Cowboys

Bibbs carried two times for 13 yards while adding four catches for 43 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Bibbs received just two carries on a day when Adrian Peterson dominated the ground game, but he led the team in catches and receiving yards, scoring a 23-yard touchdown through the air in the first quarter. He had just one catch to his name through the first five games, but he took on an expanded role in that regard with Chris Thompson (ribs/knee) inactive due to injury. It is unclear whether Thompson will be ready to play next Sunday against the Giants, but Bibbs would likely play a similar part if his teammate sits out once again.

Oct 21, 2018 6:40 PM EST

Gets just three touches

Bibbs took two carries for 11 yards and caught one of two targets for six yards in Sunday's 23-17 win over Carolina.

Analysis: Bibbs played 26 snaps on offense with Chris Thompson (ribs/knee) unavailable, but the playing time didn't actually translate to touches. Given that he was a game-time decision, Thompson may be able to return for Week 7 against Dallas.

Oct 15, 2018 7:53 AM EST

Should have modest role Sunday

Bibbs is expected to fill in for the inactive Chris Thompson (ribs/knee) on Sunday versus the Panthers, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Bibbs will have to contend with workhorse back Adrian Peterson for carries, but there should be plenty of volume available in the passing game with Thompson and Jamison Crowder (ankle) on the sideline. In five appearances with the Redskins, Bibbs has hauled in 14 of 17 passes for 128 yards and one touchdown.

Oct 14, 2018 9:13 AM EST

Promoted by Redskins

Bibbs was promoted to the Redskins' active roster from their practice squad Saturday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Bibbs will be No. 4 on the depth chart at running back, so it is unlikely he will get much run there. His primary role will likely be on special times for the time being.

Sep 22, 2018 9:59 AM EST

Gets spot on practice squad

Bibbs has a spot on Washington's practice squad, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Bibbs had 100 scrimmage yards in Week 17 last year and picked up 225 yards on 26 touches this preseason. It wasn't quite enough to earn a spot on the 53-man roster, with the Redskins opting for Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine to fill out the depth chart. Bibbs could be next in line for work on passing downs if Chris Thompson suffers an injury at any point during the season.

Sep 5, 2018 4:41 PM EST

Cut by Redskins

The Redskins let go Bibbs on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The arrival of Adrian Peterson in Washington spelled doom for those on the fringes of the backfield. Bibbs will be the first to go but won't be the last as the Redskins finalize their remaining cuts. With just 50 carries and 16 receptions in 16 career games, he may find it difficult to find a landing spot.

Sep 1, 2018 12:27 PM EST

Improves roster chances

Bibbs improved his case for a roster spot in Thursday's preseason loss to the Ravens, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Bibbs only took two carries for 11 yards, but he did strong work as a pass blocker and picked up 41 yards on three receptions. With Chris Thompson bouncing back from a severe leg/ankle injury, Washington may value Bibbs' pass-catching ability over whatever Samaje Perine or Rob Kelley has to offer. One of the three likely will be released within the next few days.

Aug 30, 2018 7:57 PM EST

Moves closer to spot

Bibbs took two carries for 41 yards and caught two of four targets for 20 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Broncos.

Analysis: With Chris Thompson (leg) still being held out, Bibbs operated as the passing-down back for the starting offense. Thompson is expected to be ready for Week 1, but it won't come as any surprise if Bibbs sticks around on the 53-man roster as a form of insurance. The other Washington running backs -- Adrian Peterson, Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine (ankle) -- don't offer much in the passing game. Bibbs has quietly piled up 173 scrimmage yards in three preseason games.
