Bibbs latest free agent pickup to make impact for Redskins
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Kapri Bibbs was out of work, not out of hope.
Traded from the Denver Broncos to the San Francisco 49ers after 29 carries in 12 games and then cut after training camp, Bibbs trained at Tom Shaw's facility in Orlando and bided his time for three months.

Aqib Talib, Derek Wolfe back for Broncos’ stretch run
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — For a guy who didn't get away during the bye week, Aqib Talib was sure in a good mood Monday.
He sang. He danced. He crowed.
Following his first practice since Oct. 28, Talib said his balky back was "feeling great," the cortisone shot and all that rest and rehab doing wonders for his mobility and his mood.
"Hey, y'all better come get this," Talib hollered at a group of reporters gathered around running back Kapri Bibbs on the other side of the locker room.
Kapri Bibbs earns bigger role in struggling Broncos offense
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos need a boost, and Kapri Bibbs will get the chance to spark their sputtering offense.
Coach Gary Kubiak said the third-year running back deserves more touches after scoring his first career touchdown last week.
His zig-zagging 69-yard score on a screen pass in Oakland was reminiscent of the breakthrough TD in the same stadium that kick-started C.J. Anderson's career two years ago.
Among the 200 texts Bibbs received afterward was one from Anderson.
