Redskins' Chris Thompson: Mediocre day in win
Thompson rushed the ball nine times for 37 yards while hauling in three receptions for 29 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win for the Eagles. He also fielded two kick returns for 17 yards.
Thompson's nine rushing attempts were easily his season high, although he failed to break any carries for big gains. He continues to be an asset in the passing game, as well as in the return game. Rob Kelley's impressive 59-yard rushing performance on Sunday could take away some of Thompson's rushing opportunities in the next couple of weeks, but the back should still be heavily featured in third-down situations.
