  • Chris Thompson: Parts ways with Chicago

    Thompson was released from the Bears' practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Thompson signed to Chicago's practice squad in mid-October but never made his way to the active roster during his time with the team. He also spent time on the 49ers' practice squad earlier in the season.

  • Chris Thompson: Links up with Chicago

    Thompson was signed to the Bears' practice squad Tuesday, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Thompson had a tryout with the Bears on Monday, and he apparently showcased himself well enough to nab a spot on the practice squad. Chicago is dealing with some issues at running back, with David Montgomery (knee) on injured reserve and Damien Williams (illness) caught up in the COVID-19 protocols. Khalil Herbert and Ryan Nall are currently the only available tailbacks on the active roster, so Thompson could receive a promotion if Williams is unable to rejoin the team soon.

  • Chris Thompson: Released Tuesday

    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

    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.
