Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Steelers, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports. Thompson was elevated from Kansas City's practice squad Saturday, but he won't suit up for the playoff opener since Darrel Williams (toe) is available. Derrick Gore and Jerick McKinnon will serve as the primary backup options behind Williams.
The Chiefs elevated Thompson to their active roster Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Thompson joined Kansas City's practice squad Friday after spending the regular season on the Buccaneers' practice squad. He'll now join the Chiefs' active roster ahead of Sunday's wild-card matchup against Pittsburgh. The 24-year-old will provide additional depth in the backfield because Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) has been ruled out and Darrel Williams (toe) is questionable.
Thompson signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's official transactions log. Thompson was cut from the Buccaneers' practice squad Thursday. He now returns to the franchise that selected him in the sixth round of the 2019 draft. With Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) out and Darrel Williams (toe) questionable, there is small chance Thompson could suit up Sunday against the Steelers.
Thompson has been released from the Buccaneers' practice squad. The move frees up a spot for the team's addition of wideout John Brown to the practice squad. Thompson had given the Bucs some added running back depth down the stretch, but he's the odd man out now that Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Giovani Bernard (hip) appear to be nearing a return to action ahead of Tampa Bay's postseason run.
Thompson signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad Thursday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. Thompson is a relatively high-profile signing by practice squad standards, considering he logged 26 games of regular-season action with the Chiefs over the last two campaigns, even drawing one start over that span. Thompson lost out on a roster spot this summer due to Kansas City's deep backfield, but the Utah State product will now garner a closer look from the defending champions.
