Moving up depth chart With Washington cutting Adrian Peterson on Friday, McKissic could be the No. 2 running back, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Impact Washington has cut both Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson this offseason, and while Antonio Gibson is presumed to be the main beneficiary, he's a rookie with no preseason experience. On the other hand, McKissic has a proven, unique skillset, and last season he rushed 38 times for 205 yards (5.4 yards per carry) and caught 34 of 42 targets for 233 yards and a touchdown for the Lions. McKissic (5-10, 195) doesn't have the frame to be a three-down workhorse, but he projects as an intriguing change-of-pace back in 2020. If Gibson takes off, however, McKissic could fade into a battle with Peyton Barber and Bryce Love for the remaining backfield reps.
