McKissick has been in Washington since the 2020 season. Prior to that, he entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent from Arkansas in 2016 and played for the Falcons, Seahawks, and Lions. This offseason, McKissick agreed to signing terms with the Buffalo Bills as a free agent, but ended up changing course and signing a two-year, $7 million contract to stay with the Commanders.

McKissick was one of Washington’s most focused pass catchers, throwing 40 passes in eight games. Now that he’s out for a year, that could mean even more targets for running back Antonio Gibson. Gibson has caught 34 of 41 targets for 253 yards this season and has landed twice. Of course, rookie Bryan Robinson Jr could have had more of an impact on the passing game as well, but he has mostly been used by the club as an alternate between tackles and has only seen four goals this year.
