As expected, rookie RB Antonio Gibson has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers due to the turf toe injury he suffered on Monday Night Football. Yesterday Rivera said Gibson's injury was concerning, but he has been working with trainers all week.

Rivera has been telling the team this week about humility following their big win over the last undefeated team in the NFL last week. He has also been emphasizing that they can't get complacent after beating the Steelers, they have to focus on beating another good team, the 49ers.

Washington will face their former left tackle Trent Williams for the first time on Sunday. Rivera said he understood Williams' reasoning for not wanting to stay with Washington, and they wish him well. Williams is one of the best in the league. Facing him will be a big test for Montez Sweat and Chase Young, and will let them "find out where they are".
