Thompson racked up eight tackles and one quarterback hit during Sunday's 34-33 victory against the Vikings. A fifth-round pick in the NFL Supplemental Draft back in 2019, Thompson was productive as a rookie, with 57 tackles, three pass defenses and one interception in 15 games. He only managed five appearances last season due to injury, so his performance Sunday is an encouraging sign that significant tackle counts remain possible for the starting strong safety. Thompson will look to continue the momentum Week 3 in Jacksonville.
Thompson (ankle) has been deemed inactive for Saturday's game against the 49ers. Thompson's confirmed Week 16 absence marks the 22-year-old's 11th of the season, aligning Chris Banjo for a potential third start in four games at the strong safety spot. Thompson, a Washington State product, missed just one game all of last season after the Cardinals selected him with a fifth-round pick in the 2019 draft.
Thompson (ankle) has been labeled questionable heading into Saturday's game against San Francisco, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. The second-year man has struggled to stay on the field this season, posting a total of four starts. An ankle injury kept Thompson on injured reserve for much of September and October, and upon his Week 9 return, he was only capable of mustering three appearances before being shelved once again. The same ankle continues to beleaguer Thompson, but at least he was able to register a trio of limited sessions this week, providing hope for a Week 16 appearance.
Thompson (ankle) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's practice estimate. The Cardinals didn't actually take the field Tuesday, but Thompson looks poised to make his first practice appearance in over a month this week. It's still uncertain if he'll be ready for Saturday's game against the 49ers. He's trending in the right direction, though, and he should reclaim the starting strong safety job upon return.
Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports. Thompson has yet to practice since suffering this ankle injury back in Week 11. Chris Banjo has been starting in Thompson's place, a trend that is expected to continue in Week 15.
