    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Ruled out for third straight week

    Chris Thompson (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.Limited to side work with the training staff this week, Thompson is still in too much pain to play in a game. Kapri Bibbs will continue to fill in for Thompson on passing downs, with Byron Marshall (knee) likely to return from injured reserve to replace an injured Samaje Perine (hip) in the No. 3 role out of the backfield. Thompson may have a hard time avoiding another absence with Washington Redskins playing in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day in Week 12.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Fails to practice Thursday

    Chris Thompson (ribs) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.According to John Keim of ESPN.com, Thompson was seen working out on the side Thursday, spurring hope that he'd elevate to a limited participant. Even if he had fit in some activity, it may not have played into the decision-making process for Sunday's game against the Texans. On Wednesday, coach Jay Gruden told Keim that Thompson is unlikely to play Week 11. If Thompson sits out for the fifth time in six contests, Kapri Bibbs would serve as the primary change-of-pace option behind Adrian Peterson.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Trending toward another absence

    Coach Jay Gruden said Chris Thompson (ribs) is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's game against the Texans, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. "I can't do anything outside of being uncomfortable standing for too long, sitting for too long," Thompson told Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post. "I've just got to focus on trying to get better and being patient, because sometimes with ribs it can happen quick or it can be a slow process."Thompson has been available just one time in the Washington Redskins' last five contests, the result of a pair of rib injuries. He hasn't set himself up well this week with no reps at Wednesday's practice, but two sessions remain for the running back to change the tone about his potential to play.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Still limited by pain

    Chris Thompson (ribs) is still dealing with considerable pain and isn't sure when he will be ready to play, but he did say his injury is improving, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. "I can't do anything outside of being uncomfortable standing for too long, sitting for too long," Thompson said. "I've just got to focus on trying to get better and being patient, because sometimes with ribs it can happen quick or it can be a slow process."Thompson has missed four of the past five games due to two separate rib injuries, unable to practice in any capacity the past two weeks. It sounds like he could make it back to limited participation in the coming days, potentially setting up a game-time decision Sunday against the Texans. Kapri Bibbs will continue to handle passing downs out of the Washington Redskins backfield if Thompson ultimately ends up missing another week.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Won't play Sunday

    Chris Thompson (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.Thompson was unable to participate in the first two practices during Week 10 prep, so the Washington Redskins opted for a proactive approach and will give the pass-catching back more time to recover from an injury to his rib cage. In Thompson's stead, expect Kapri Bibbs to handle the change-of-pace role behind Adrian Peterson, though deep reserve Samaje Perine may also be utilized out of the backfield. Thompson's next chance to attempt to return will be Sunday, Nov. 18 versus the Texans.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Not participating in practice

    Chris Thompson (ribs) wasn't spotted taking part in practice Thursday during the portion of the session that was available to the media, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.Thompson hasn't practiced in any fashion since re-injuring his rib cage Oct. 28 against the Giants and appears on track to miss his fourth game of the season Sunday versus the Buccaneers. Assuming Thompson can't go, Kapri Bibbs would work as the Washington Redskins' primary passing-down back.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Absent from practice

    Chris Thompson (ribs) isn't practicing Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.Thompson returned from a two-game absence Oct. 28 against the Giants, but he suffered a new rib injury in the process and didn't practice at all last week. Now dealing with pain on both sides of his rib cage, the veteran pass-catching back is looking shaky for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay. Another absence would free up passing-down work for Kapri Bibbs, who doesn't warrant the same level of involvement in the Washington offense.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Ruled out for Week 9

    Chris Thompson (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Atlanta, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.Thompson returned from rib and knee injuries in last week's 20-13 win over the Giants, but then suffered a new injury on the other side of his rib cage. He's far from a lock to make it back for Week 10 against Tampa Bay, considering he didn't practice at all this week and reportedly showed visible signs of pain even when he wasn't moving around. Washington will also be missing wideout Jamison Crowder (ankle) and left tackle Trent Williams (thumb) on Sunday, though it would be more of a concern for Alex Smith if the team was facing a more threatening defense. Kapri Bibbs (shoulder) is expected to fill in for Thompson on passing downs, assuming his own injury isn't serious enough to require an absence. Adrian Peterson and/or Samaje Perine would be the desperation alternatives for those situations.

    Redskins' Chris Thompson: Looking unlikely to play Week 9

    Chris Thompson (ribs) isn't practicing Friday and doesn't seem likely to be available for Sunday's game against Atlanta, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.Thompson overcame a rib injury to suit up for the Washington Redskins' 20-13 win over the Giants in Week 8, but he injured the other side of his ribs along the way. He's now been held out of practice all week, with John Keim of ESPN.com relaying that the running back has been showing visible signs of pain just standing around in the locker room. Coach Jay Gruden suggested the team will take a cautious approach with Thompson, so it won't come as any surprise if the 28-year-old is ruled out when the Redskins release their final injury report later Friday.
