Antonio Gibson had surgery on his foot Thursday to repair a fracture. Had been playing with it for a little bit; couldn't make it worse but once he sprained his knee they decided to do the procedure. Doing it now will help him get back on the field for offseason workouts.— John Keim (@john_keim) January 6, 2023
