    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Undergoing surgery on torn labrum

    Thompson will undergo surgery on the torn labrum in his left shoulder Wednesday, The Washington Times reports. When healthy, Thompson showed off his chops as both a runner and pass-catcher this season, but a crowded backfield contained him to just 35 rushes and 35 receptions. Further hindering his overall output were injuries to his neck and shoulder that forced three DNPs over the course of the campaign, the latter of which is being remedied Wednesday. While his offseason will include rehabilitation, Washington brass must make a decision on the exclusive rights free agent as well as unrestricted free agent Alfred Morris, which ultimately impact Thompson's potential workload in 2016.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Totals 114 yards against Green Bay

    Thompson caught all eight of the passes that came his way for 89 yards and added a 25-yard run in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Thompson caught five of his passes during the final six minutes of the game with the Green Bay defense dropping into deep zones and catch-and-run opportunities open. Thompson ranked fourth on the team in receptions and fifth in targets during the regular season. He could see added looks in 2016 should Matt Jones take over the starting role and Alfred Morris depart, opening up the No. 2 back job.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Active Sunday

    Thompson (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday at Dallas. With Matt Jones (hip) out of commission, Thompson will vie with Alfred Morris and Pierre Thomas (knee) for touches out of the backfield in the season finale. Thompson has been more serviceable as a receiver than a runner this season, but Morris may only make a cameo, meaning Thompson could be handed a sprinkling of carries as well.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Probable to face Cowboys

    Thompson (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Exclusively used as a passing-down back this season, Thompson could see an expanded role in Week 17, as Washington doesn't have anything to play for and probably won't have Matt Jones (doubtful-hip) available. Furthermore, Pierre Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable, leaving Thompson and Alfred Morris as the team's healthiest running backs.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Active Saturday

    Thompson is active for Saturday's game against the Eagles. With Matt Jones being rule out Saturday, Thompson figures to be the secondary option in the backfield behind Alfred Morris. He has yet to exceed six carries in a game this season, although he has caught six or more balls on three occasions, so there is some minor appeal in PPR leagues.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Listed as probable

    Thompson (shoulder) is listed as probable for Saturday's matchup with Philadelphia. Thompson has missed the last two games, but he told reporters that he feels confident heading into the division matchup with the Eagles, noting that the shoulder ailment should no longer be an issue. "I'm ready to get back out there," Thompson said. "It's been a tough few weeks for me, and just being out on the field is my way of getting away from life. [Tuesday], I was pretty emotional as you could tell on the sideline."

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Practices fully Wednesday

    Thompson (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday. Thompson has missed back-to-back games due to a torn labrum in his shoulder, but there's no better way to state one's intention of returning with a full practice session. With Matt Jones (hip) ailing at the moment, Thompson could play a decent role out of the backfield Saturday in Philadelphia.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Inactive Sunday

    Thompson (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Bills. In Thompson's second straight absence due to a torn labrum, Washington will rely upon the duo of Alfred Morris and Matt Jones out of the backfield in Week 15.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Listed as questionable for Sunday

    Thompson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, ESPN's John Keim reports. Limited at practice throughout the week, Thompson could come down to a game-time decision for Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff. His return would be bad news for Matt Jones owners, as the rookie handled most of the passing-down work in a Week 14 win over the Bears.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Limited Wednesday

    Thompson (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. The appearance at individual drills marked Thompson's first since sustaining a torn labrum in Week 14. According to head coach Jay Gruden, Thompson has been "doing more and more in practice," signaling that he's attempting to suit up again this season. With that goal in mind, Thompson will use Thursday and Friday to show what he can handle at this point in his recovery.
