The Jaguars activated Thompson (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Thompson returned to the team facilities Tuesday after clearing the necessary protocols, and now he's officially back on the 53-man roster. The Jaguars have a Week 8 bye, but Thompson is expected to be back in the lineup Week 9 against the Texans. The 30-year-old running back will continue to operate in a change-of-pace role behind rookie James Robinson.
