    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Absent from OTA session

    Chris Thompson (lower leg) remained on the sideline during Wednesday's OTA session, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.Thompson continues to recover from a fibula fracture suffered in November and the team has yet to reveal a timeline for his return to action. When healthy, Thompson will rejoin a backfield featuring Samaje Perine, Rob Kelley (ankle) and second-round pick Derrius Guice. Guice could challenge for considerable playing time immediately in Washington, but Thompson would probably feel the impact of that change the least due to the rookie's struggles in the receiving game and Thompson's own brilliance as a pass catcher.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Joined by Guice in backfield

    Chris Thompson (leg) will be joined by second-round pick Derrius Guice in the Washington backfield, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports.The new acquisition is a threat to Kelley and Perine more so than Thompson, who is well established as one of the better passing-down backs in the league. For all his talent as a runner, Guice had only 32 catches in 35 career games at LSU, offering little as a receiver or pass blocker. He doesn't figure to see work on passing downs as a rookie, but his presence could inspire the Washington Redskins to put a greater emphasis on their running game, which in turn would keep Thompson off the field. The larger concern is Thompson's recovery from early-December surgery to repair a fractured fibula, though he seems to be progressing on schedule. The Redskins hope he'll be available in some capacity for OTAs in May.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Could return for OTAs

    Chris Thompson (leg/ankle) made it through Monday's on-field workout without incident, potentially setting him up for some degree of participation in Organized Team Activities in May, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Washington Redskins' official website reports.Thompson fractured his fibula Nov. 19, bringing an early end to a breakout campaign that included 39 catches, 804 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns in 10 games. His walking boot came off in early February, and Monday marked Thompson's return to on-field running drills, albeit without making any cuts. Thompson isn't too worried about the fibula fracture, but he does have some concerns about his recovery from the accompanying ligament damage to his ankle. While he's not expected to be a full participant for OTAs, his doctor believes he could be healthy enough to participate in some individual drills, which would give Thompson a chance to get accustomed to Alex Smith's throwing motion. Redskins head coach Jay Gruden expects to use an early draft pick on a running back, but he's likely looking to add competition for Rob Kelley (ankle) and Samaje Perine on early downs rather than for Thompson on passing downs.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Running on field

    Chris Thompson (leg) will run on a field Monday for the first time since suffering a fractured fibula Nov. 19, according to his twitter account.Thompson is said to be making good progress, though he admits he's a bit nervous about the big step forward Monday. He previously said he hoped to be ready for OTAs in May, and he should remain on track if there aren't hitches with his return to on-field running. Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said there's a good chance the team uses an early draft pick on a running back, but that would seem to be a commentary on Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) and Samaje Perine more so than Thompson. The 2013 fifth-round pick is well established as one of the top passing-down backs in the league, coming off a 2017 season in which he caught 39 of 54 targets for 510 yards and four touchdowns in only 10 games, adding 64 carries for 294 yards (4.6 average) and another two scores for good measure.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Progressing with rehab

    Chris Thompson's rehab from a fractured right fibula is going well, Rich Tandler of NBCSports Washington reports.There haven't been any specifics reported since mid-January when Thompson was out of a cast but still on crutches. He has an estimated timeline of 4-to-6 months from the initial injury date of Nov. 19, with Thompson saying he hopes to be available for OTAs in May. At worst, he should be back for training camp, where he'll serve as one of Alex Smith's preferred options in the short passing game. Thompson is entering the first season of a two-year, $7 million extension he signed in November, looking to build on a breakout 2017 in which he had 804 scrimmage yards (510 receiving) and six touchdowns in only 10 games. In addition to his usual passing-down duties, he could handle a sizable portion of the early down work if Washington doesn't do much to address its shaky backfield in the coming weeks. As things currently stand, power backs Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley (ankle/knee) are the only real competition for snaps.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: On track to be ready for training camp

    At this stage, Chris Thompson (lower leg) remains on pace to be ready for training camp. "As players, we're known to try and rush and get back on that field as quick as we possibly can," Thompson noted. "We have some time before training camp and OTA's coming around, so I'm just going to be smart and trust the trainers and go from there."Thompson is still using crutches after fracturing his fibula Nov. 19, but with his expected recovery time in the 4-to-6 month range, it's understandable that he plans to be ready when training camp rolls around. In 10 games prior to his injury, the 27-year-old recorded 64 carries for 294 yards and two touchdowns and caught 39 of his 54 targets for 510 yards and four TDs. Thompson is signed through the 2019 season and figures to remain a key cog in the Washington backfield next season, with his pass-catching ability giving him strong PPR utility, while the 5-foot-8, 191-pounder presumably works in tandem with power backs Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley (ankle), among others.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Declares he'll be ready for camp

    Chris Thompson (lower leg) said Tuesday he'll require 4-to-6 months to recover from early December surgery to repair his fractured right fibula, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.Thompson is only in the early stages of his rehabbing, but he didn't rule out the possibility of being ready for the start of Organized Team Activities in the spring if he hits the short end of his recovery timetable. At the very least, Thompson said he would be fully healed by the start of training camp in the summer, putting him on track to enter 2018 at optimal strength after what had been a breakout 2017 campaign before he went down with the season-ending leg injury. Assuming Thompson heals as expected, look for him to fill a prominent role in the Washington Redskins' passing attack next season while also earning a handful of carries per game.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Could be ready for OTAs

    Chris Thompson (lower leg) is progressing well in his recovery from a broken fibula and could be ready to participate in the Washington Redskins' Organized Team Activities in May, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.Thompson, who was leading the Redskins in both rushing and receiving yardage before suffering the season-ending injury in Week 11, recently had the cast removed from his surgically repaired right leg, but is still getting around in a walking boot. Though he's still in the initial stages of his recovery, it sounds like he'll be close to fully healed four months from now, setting the stage for him to enter training camp at full health. It's uncertain if quarterback Kirk Cousins and the Redskins' coaching staff will be retained in 2018, but regardless of the personnel surrounding him, Thompson looks poised to see ample passing-down work if his health holds up.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Placed on injured reserve

    Washington placed Chris Thompson (lower leg) on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Washington Redskins' official site reports.Thompson, who leads the Redskins in both rushing (294) and receiving (510) yards this season, will be shut down for the team's final six games after fracturing his right fibula in Sunday's loss to the Saints. The Redskins signed LeShun Daniels from their practice squad to fill his spot in the backfield, but it's expected that Byron Marshall will settle in as the team's top pass-catching back while Samaje Perine leads the ground attack the rest of the way.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Slated for surgery

    Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Chris Thompson will undergo surgery this week to repair a fractured right fibula.The procedure will likely spell an end to what had been a breakthrough season for Thompson, who emerged as the Redskins' top offensive weapon with six touchdowns and 804 total yards through 10 games before suffering the injury while attempting to make a block in the third quarter of Sunday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Saints. With Thompson expected to join Rob Kelley (ankle) on injured reserve in the near future, a workhorse role could be in the offing for rookie Samaje Perine, who had the best game of his young career Sunday, finishing with 117 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries.
