    Chris Thompson: Released Tuesday

    Chris Thompson was released from the 49ers' practice squad Tuesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.The 30-year-old was added to the team's practice squad Sept. 22 as a result of injuries in the backfield. Now that Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) is nearing a return and the 49ers' no longer need additional running back depth, Thompson was the odd man out. He appeared in eight games for the Jaguars in 2020, notably catching 20 balls for 146 yards and a touchdown.

    Chris Thompson: Joins Niners' practice squad

    Chris Thompson signed with the 49ers' practice squad Wednesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.At his best, Thompson was one of the better passing-down backs in the league, but he's now 30 years old and hasn't played more than 11 games in a season since 2016. He has a history with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, who was Washington's offensive coordinator in 2013 when Thompson played all of zero offensive snaps in four games as a rookie fifth-round pick. He'll now have a chance to work his way up the depth chart for an injury-riddled 49ers team that just lost JaMycal Hasty to a knee injury. Raheem Mostert (knee) is already out for the year, Jeff Wilson (knee) is on the PUP list, and even Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) and Trey Sermon (concussion) are uncertain to play Sunday against the Packers while they manage injuries.

    Jaguars' Chris Thompson: No future in Jacksonville?

    The Jacksonville Jaguars may look for a new third-down back to replace Chris Thompson (back) this offseason, Garry Smits of The Florida Times-Union reports.Thompson signed a one-year contract last offseason and played in eight games before a back injury sent him to injured reserve. He finished with only seven carries for 20 yards and a 20/146/1 receiving line, while starting RB James Robinson piled up 1,070 rushing yards, 344 receiving yards and 10 total touchdowns. The Jags may want a third-down specialist to help lighten Robinson's workload in 2021, but the 30-year-old Thompson isn't likely to be that guy. After missing five or more games for a fourth consecutive year, Thompson could have trouble finding work even if his back injury heals before the start of free agency.

    Jaguars' Chris Thompson: Sent to IR

    The Jacksonville Jaguars placed Chris Thompson (back) on injured reserve Monday, John Shipley of reports.Thompson suffered a back injury during Sunday's loss to the Packers, and while the team hasn't provided injury details, he'll require at least three weeks to recover. This should open the door for Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) and Dare Ogunbowale to contribute in the passing game moving forward, but James Robinson still is the bell cow, as he's handled 86.8 percent of the running back touches this year.

    Jaguars' Chris Thompson: Dealing with new issue

    Chris Thompson has been cleared from concussion evaluation, but remains questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to a back injury.Thompson exited the game in the first quarter and despite clearing concussion protocol, he's still not healthy enough to return. With Thompson still sidelined, Dare Ogunbowale will continue to handle the depth running back role behind James Robinson in Sunday's game.

    Jaguars' Chris Thompson: Exits contest Sunday

    Chris Thompson left Sunday's game against the Packers and is being evaluated for a concussion.Thompson was forced to leave the game following the team's first drive, so he'll need to be cleared by the NFL's independent doctors to return to action. As long as he's sidelined, expect Dare Ogunbowale to take over the depth running back role behind James Robinson in Sunday's game.

    Jaguars' Chris Thompson: Totals 38 yards

    Chris Thompson rushed once for three yards and caught all four of his targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 27-25 loss to the Texans.Rookie James Robinson continues to dominate the backfield work for Jacksonville, and he had a career-high 25 carries during Sunday's contest. Thompson played 19 offensive snaps and totaled exactly 35 receiving yards for the third time this season. The veteran continues to work in a passing-down role, and his fantasy prospects remain inconsequential while Robinson is the clear No. 1 back.

    Jaguars' Chris Thompson: Back at facility

    Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday that Chris Thompson (illness) has been cleared to return to the team facility, John Shipley of reports.The fact that Thompson is back with the team suggests that he's cleared all health-related protocols since landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. Jacksonville has yet to formally reinstate Thompson to the 53-man roster, but that should happen before the team's next game Nov. 8 versus the Texans. Once activated, expect Thompson to return to a low-usage change-of-pace role behind top running back James Robinson.
