Thompson, who played eight games for the Cowboys this season before spending five more with the Bills (he missed the finale with a toe injury), will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Thompson, while still speedy, is primarily a depth receiver at this stage of his career and caught only 17 balls for 161 yards and no touchdowns last season. The Bills like him enough that they've had him for three different stints, but he'll be 30 next month and may be phased out as the team continues to rework the position group. At best, he'll end up as a No. 4-5-6 receiver in 2019.
Thompson (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Dolphins. Thompson missed each day of practice this week. The Florida product sustained the injury during last week's loss to the Patriots. In Thompson's absence, Da'Mari Scott, Victor Bolden and perhaps even rookie Ray-Ray McCloud could see increased workloads.
Thompson (toe) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday. It's looking pretty slim the veteran will play in the Bills' season finale, which would perhaps give rookie Ray-Ray McCloud a few looks as a depth option in the team's offense after being a healthy scratch for several weeks this season.
Coach Sean McDermott said Thompson (toe) wouldn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. After exiting the Week 16 loss to the Patriots with the toe issue, Thompson will probably need to make it back to the practice field in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a shot at suiting up in Sunday's season finale against the Dolphins. If active for the contest, Thompson would likely rank as nothing more than the Bills' No. 4 option at wideout, a role that wouldn't lend itself to much fantasy utility.
Thompson is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a toe injury. The severity of Thompson's toe injury is not yet known. With Thompson temporarily sidelined, Da'Mari Scott and Victor Bolden could see a small increase in workload.
