Should Commander Washington trade Antonio Gibson after rough preseason?

If the Washington Commanders all-in rookie RB Brian Robinson Jr. as the lead runner, there will be questions about the future role of third-year RB Antonio Gibson.

It’s a hard reality for fans to grasp, but trading Gibson at the right cost will no doubt be discussed before the regular season begins.

After suffering bad luck against the Carolina Panthers last week, Washington chose to use Robinson in the first-team offense Saturday afternoon in the team’s 24-14 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs. Gibson, trying to finish his season with his first 1,000 yards, played mostly on pass downs in the first half. He recorded three catches for 37 yards, including a 22-yard gain during the team’s touchdown drive in the second quarter.
