Coach Perry Fewell said Thursday that Thompson (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Saints, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Thompson has missed back-to-back practice sessions to begin the week, per Steve Reed of the Associated Press, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. In his stead, Jermaine Carter will likely play another expanded role on defense.
