Thompson (undisclosed) cleared waivers Sunday and reverted to the 49ers' injured reserve, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports. Unless Thompson reaches an injury settlement with the 49ers, he won't play in the 2020 campaign. It's still unclear what kind of injury the 26-year-old wideout is battling, but if it's not severe, he could have another chance at an NFL roster this season.
The 49ers waived/injured Thompson (undisclosed) on Saturday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. If Thompson clears waivers, he'll revert to the 49ers' injured reserve and await a potential injury settlement. The 26-year-old wideout hasn't played an NFL game since the 2017 season, so even if he reaches a settlement, he's a long shot to make an NFL roster.
Thompson was waived by the 49ers on Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. The additions of Tavon Austin and J.J. Nelson created a suddenly deep 49ers wide receiving corps, with Thompson on the outside looking in. Thompson hasn't played in a regular-season game since 2017.
Thompson signed a reserve/future contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Thompson spent parts of training camp with the 49ers and eventually signed to the practice squad in December, and he's now set to remain with the team for the offseason program. The 25-year-old hasn't seen NFL action since appearing in 13 games as a rookie with the Texans in 2017.
The 49ers signed Thompson to the practice squad Tuesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Thompson spent much of the offseason in San Francisco, and he now rejoins the team as a member of the practice squad. The third-year pro could be a candidate to bump to the active roster later in the season if he shows well on special teams.
