  • Thompson signed with the 49ers' practice squad Wednesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. At his best, Thompson was one of the better passing-down backs in the league, but he's now 30 years old and hasn't played more than 11 games in a season since 2016. He has a history with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, who was Washington's offensive coordinator in 2013 when Thompson played all of zero offensive snaps in four games as a rookie fifth-round pick. He'll now have a chance to work his way up the depth chart for an injury-riddled 49ers team that just lost JaMycal Hasty to a knee injury. Raheem Mostert (knee) is already out for the year, Jeff Wilson (knee) is on the PUP list, and even Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) and Trey Sermon (concussion) are uncertain to play Sunday against the Packers while they manage injuries.

  • The Jaguars may look for a new third-down back to replace Thompson (back) this offseason, Garry Smits of The Florida Times-Union reports. Thompson signed a one-year contract last offseason and played in eight games before a back injury sent him to injured reserve. He finished with only seven carries for 20 yards and a 20/146/1 receiving line, while starting RB James Robinson piled up 1,070 rushing yards, 344 receiving yards and 10 total touchdowns. The Jags may want a third-down specialist to help lighten Robinson's workload in 2021, but the 30-year-old Thompson isn't likely to be that guy. After missing five or more games for a fourth consecutive year, Thompson could have trouble finding work even if his back injury heals before the start of free agency.

  • The Jaguars placed Thompson (back) on injured reserve Monday, John Shipley of SI.com reports. Thompson suffered a back injury during Sunday's loss to the Packers, and while the team hasn't provided injury details, he'll require at least three weeks to recover. This should open the door for Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) and Dare Ogunbowale to contribute in the passing game moving forward, but James Robinson still is the bell cow, as he's handled 86.8 percent of the running back touches this year.

  • Thompson has been cleared from concussion evaluation, but remains questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to a back injury. Thompson exited the game in the first quarter and despite clearing concussion protocol, he's still not healthy enough to return. With Thompson still sidelined, Dare Ogunbowale will continue to handle the depth running back role behind James Robinson in Sunday's game.

  • Thompson left Sunday's game against the Packers and is being evaluated for a concussion. Thompson was forced to leave the game following the team's first drive, so he'll need to be cleared by the NFL's independent doctors to return to action. As long as he's sidelined, expect Dare Ogunbowale to take over the depth running back role behind James Robinson in Sunday's game.
