Thompson was released by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Thompson had been absent for over a week with a concussion, but he was able to return to practice recently. However, it looks like Thompson was not in the Texans' future plans and he'll now look to latch onto another team with just a couple weeks to go before the start of the season.
Thompson (concussion) has returned to practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Thompson's concussion kept him out of competition for about a month, so he'll have some ground to make up in the job battle. It's unclear what the Texans' plans are for Thompson down the road, but it seems as if his preseason showing could heavily sway the organization's feelings about him in the short term.
Thompson has cleared concussion protocol, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Thompson has been sidelined for a pair of weeks while recovering from the issue and appears to be ready to return. The second-year wideout made five grabs and contributed as a returner in 2017, though it's unclear if he's expected to reprise that role this season.
Thompson has been sidelined the last week due to a concussion, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Thompson, an undrafted free agent a year ago out of the University of Florida, appeared in 13 games for the Texans in 2017, seeing time mostly on special teams as a gunner and returner. The news of his concussion brings more clarity to Houston's decision to sign wide receiver/kick returner Quan Bray on Sunday. Thompson is making a sound recovery from the concussion and nearly done with the symptoms.
Thompson caught all three of his targets for a team-high 54 yards in Sunday's 22-13 loss to the Colts. Thompson was already moved up the depth chart for the game when DeAndre Hopkins (calf) was made inactive, then moved up another notch when Will Fuller was removed due to a knee injury. The undrafted free agent made more of an impact as a kick returner in 2017 and should be in the mix for the same job next season, if the Texans bring him back in 2018.
