    Redskins' Pierre Thomas: Active Sunday

    Thomas (knee) is active for Sunday's contest in Dallas. Washington has only deactivated Matt Jones (hip) for the season finale, leaving a logjam for potential reps among Thomas, Alfred Morris, and Chris Thompson (shoulder). If Week 16 was any indication -- seven receptions for 67 yards on eight targets at Philadelphia -- Thomas could be used as a pass-catching option, though head coach Jay Gruden mentioned early in the week that stalwarts like Morris may not see many reps with the postseason in mind.

    Redskins' Pierre Thomas: Listed as questionable

    Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. With Washington already locked in as the NFC's No. 4 seed, it's unclear how head coach Jay Gruden will manage his running backs. A lot of the team's nicked up players will likely be rested, but with Thomas unlikely to have a key role in the playoffs, it's possible he ends up getting a significant portion of the workload. Matt Jones (hip) is listed as doubtful, leaving Thomas, Alfred Morris and Chris Thompson (probable-shoulder) as the candidates for carries.

    Redskins' Pierre Thomas: Limited Wednesday

    Thomas (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. Thomas was Washington's second-most utilized running back in Week 16, turning four carries in 22 yards and seven of eight targets into 67 yards. Because head coach Jay Gruden has hinted that he'll rest some of his key players in the season finale, Thomas could take advantage of a backfield without a resting Alfred Morris. However, Thomas must first escape Week 17 prep unscathed.

    Redskins' Pierre Thomas: Takes advantage of more playing time

    Thomas benefited from Matt Jones (hip) being inactive in Week 16. He rushed four times for 22 yards and caught 7 of 8 targets for 67 yards. Thomas leapfrogged Chris Thompson in both touches and snaps.

    Redskins' Pierre Thomas: Signs with Redskins

    Thomas agreed to a contract with the Redskins on Friday. The Redskins are unsure of the status of running back Chris Thompson (shoulder) for the rest of the season, so they decided to add Thomas to improve their depth in the backfield. Thomas does not figure to see much early-down work with Alfred Morris and Matt Jones healthy, but he could replace Thompson's work in the passing game if Thompson is sidelined.

    Pierre Thomas: Works out for Patriots

    Thomas worked out for the Patriots on Thursday, ESPN.com reports. As did Robert Turbin, with the Patriots quite possibly looking to add some running back depth in the wake of the season-ending injury sustained by Dion Lewis in Week 9. Thomas played for the 49ers this past Sunday, but was released this week when San Francisco signed fellow RB Travaris Cadet.

    49ers' Pierre Thomas: Free agent after being waived Tuesday

    Thomas was waived by the 49ers on Tuesday, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports. Thomas carried the ball four times for 12 yards in his 49ers debut Sunday, but the team opted to go in a different direction Tuesday after signing Travaris Cadet from free agency. Thomas might have a chance to join another club during the season, but he's unlikely to provide much fantasy value until he climbs higher up on a team's depth chart.

    49ers' Pierre Thomas: Rushes for 12 yards against Falcons

    Thomas carried the ball four times for 12 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons. The 49ers got Thomas' feet wet in what was his first game action of the season. After being signed earlier this week, it will be interesting to see what he eventually brings to the table after topping six carries just twice in 2014. Though he doesn't profile as the bell cow the 49ers' hobbled backfield could use with Carlos Hyde sidelined, Thomas' experience in pass protection and catching the ball out of the backfield could lead him to filling the injured Reggie Bush's role as the 49ers' third-down back.

    49ers' Pierre Thomas: Signs with 49ers

    Thomas agreed to a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Thomas worked out with the 49ers on Monday, and he showed enough to convince the team to bring him on board. The 49ers top three running backs are all banged up, and the team added fellow running back Shaun Draughn on Monday as well, so it remains to be seen where Thomas will slot in on the depth chart.

    Pierre Thomas: Draws interest from 49ers

    The 49ers have worked Thomas out, the Sacramento Bee reports. With both Reggie Bush and Mike Davis having been hurt on Sunday, and Carlos Hyde already banged up, the 49ers could surely use some backfield depth. The team also plans to work out Ben Tate, but either way, with several NFL team's backfields having been hit by injuries this past weekend, this finally could be the time for Thomas to catch on with a new team.
