Thompson rushed four times for 10 yards and caught three passes for seven yards during Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Thompson may get a boost in touches in Alfred Morris is unable to recover from his ribs injury and Matt Jones continues to struggle with ball security.
Thompson rushed twice for 54 yards and caught one pass for 23 yards during Sunday's win against the Saints. The Skins running backs combined for 202 rushing yards and 168 receiving yards against the helpless Saints. Thompson continues to be a change of pass back and remains third on the pecking order.
Thompson (back) did not record a carry in Sunday's loss to the Patriots but did catch two passes for 21 yards. Thompson has always been used more heavily in the passing game. His role is more situational and he is still behind Alfred Morris and Matt Jones on the depth chart.
Thompson (back) is active for Sunday's contest in New England. In his first appearance since Week 6, Thompson's pass-catching chops should reap rewards for an offense that may have to ditch the run at some point in order to preserve clock. After notching just two total targets in the first two games of the season, he hauled in 22 of 31 balls over his next four outings.
Thompson (back) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in New England. Expected to return from a one game-absence, Thompson took advantage of a bye week to get healthy. With the Redskins likely be playing from behind in New England, the matchup sets up better for Thompson than it does for Matt Jones or Alfred Morris.
