  • Thompson was limited at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury. Thompson was injured in the second half of Sunday's 54-24 loss to the Chargers, finishing with three catches for 36 yards on a team-high eight targets. Assuming the ankle issue isn't serious, he could take on an expanded role Sunday in Kansas City, as Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was unable to practice Wednesday and is considered day-to-day.

  • Bills' Deonte Thompson: Leads team in targets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thompson (undisclosed) caught three passes for 36 yards on a team-high eight targets in Sunday's 54-24 loss to the Chargers. With Jordan Matthews (knee) inactive and Kelvin Benjamin (knee) injured on the opening drive, the Bills relied on Thompson, Zay Jones, Brandon Tate and Andre Holmes. Thompson actually played the fewest snaps of that quartet, and yet still ended up with the team lead for targets. He'll have a part-time role even when everyone's healthy, but there's potential for more in Week 12 against the Chiefs if Matthews and Benjamin aren't able to play. Further complicating matters, Thompson may have suffered an injury late in Sunday's blowout loss,'s Mike Rodak reports.

  • Thompson continues to see work with the starting offense, even with the addition of Kelvin Benjamin. The veteran saw 39 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Saints while catching just one of four targets for 10 yards. It'll be interesting to see how Thompson is used once rookie Zay Jones gets healthy and comes back to the fold. For now, the current Bills wideout pecking order seems to be Benjamin and Jordan Matthews as the top two, followed by Thompson followed by Andre Holmes. In a run-based offense, that makes Thompson hard to roster even though he's had two big games out of four with the Bills, but he's essentially a dart at best, especially with Benjamin acquired via trade and tight end Charles Clay healthy again.

  • Bills' Deonte Thompson: Eye-popping debut
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thompson, signed by the Bills on Tuesday, caught all four of his targets for 107 yards in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. Apparently, the Bills liked what they saw in Thompson and were more than happy to take him on after he was waived by the Bears on Oct. 11, a move that certainly paid off and was a key component to a big come-from-behind win. Aside from Sunday against a weak Tampa Bay defense, the Bills have a lousy pass offense. Games like these won't come around often for Thompson, even though the Bills might sprinkle him into the offense given he's got a speed threat to his game, something they've been looking for. Just don't expect much more than a few big plays, as Thompson has never caught more than 22 balls in a season.

  • Bills' Deonte Thompson: Signs with Bills
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thompson signed a contract with the Bills on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Thompson was released by the Bears a little less than a week ago but it didn't take long for the six-year pro to find a new home. The Bills now have six wideouts on the active roster but Thompson may be utilized more as a return man -- as he was for the Bears the past three seasons. To make room for the veteran, the Bills released running back Joe Banyard.
