Thompson (knee) was not activated off the PUP list on Wednesday, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com reports. Thompson, who tore his ACL during the 2015 regular season finale, had returned to practice in late November with hopes of eventually being activated, but as the deadline passed Wednesday such an event won't be the case. Pat Sims and DeShawn Williams will continue to provide depth behind Geno Atkins and Domata Peko at defensive tackle.
Thompson (knee) returned to practice Tuesday. The defensive tackle was placed on the reserve/PUP list at the end of the preseason as he continued to rehab a torn ACL. Now cleared to practice, the Bengals will now have 21 days to decide if they want to activate Thompson to the 53-man roster. If he does return, expect him to serve in a reserve role behind starters Geno Atkins and Domata Peko.
Thompson (knee) was placed on the Bengals' reserve/PUP list on Tuesday, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Thompson had suffered a torn ACL in Week 17 of 2015 and had missed the entirety of the Bengals' offseason program and training camp. Given the timing of his injury, he wasn't expected to be ready for the start of the regular season anyway. He's first eligible to return to action Oct. 23 for an in-state rivalry match with the Browns.
The Bengals have placed Thompson (knee) on the PUP list to begin training camp, The Washington Post reports. The move was to be expected, as Thompson had torn his ACL in the regular-season finale versus the Ravens. He reckons to commence the regular season on the PUP list as well, which would subsequently sideline him for the Bengals' first six games.
All the Bengals who were probable or questionable on the injury report are active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The list includes linebacker Jayson DiManche (shoulder), defensive end Carlos Dunlap (illness), cornerback Terence Newman (back), defensive tackle Domata Peko (toe), guard Mike Pollak (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee) and offensive tackle Andre Smith (knee).
