  • Darian Thompson: Restored from COVID-19 list

    The Cowboys restored Thompson to the practice squad from the practice squad COVID-19 list Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Thompson appeared in five games during the 2021 regular season, operating mostly on special teams and recording three solo tackles. It's unlikely he sees any playing time during the playoffs.

  • Darian Thompson: Set for absence

    Thompson was placed on the practice squad COVID-19 list Saturday. Thompson has been elevated from the Cowboys' practice squad for each of the last four games, though he won't have that chance in Week 18 against Philadelphia. He had played nearly exclusively on special teams, racking up three total tackles.

  • Darian Thompson: Lands on practice squad IR

    Dallas placed Thompson (hamstring) on the practice squad injured list Monday. Thompson was elevated to the active roster ahead of Thursday's Week 1 loss to the Bucs, and he played 26 snaps on special teams. However, he picked up a hamstring injury during the contest and will be forced to miss some time. The severity of the injury is unknown.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Expected to miss time

    Coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that Thompson "will miss some time" due to a hamstring injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Thompson was elevated from the practice squad ahead of Thursday's Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers, and he played 26 snaps on special teams. However, he apparently suffered a hamstring injury during the contest. McCarthy didn't offer a timetable for the safety's return, but he should tentatively be considered week-to-week.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Has up-and-down campaign

    Thompson (COVID-19) recorded 43 tackles (30 solo), one interception and one forced fumble over 15 games in 2020. The 27-year-old safety started and ended the season with a starting role before missing Week 17 on the COVID-19 list, and he posted a couple of strong IDP efforts, including a 10-tackle performance Week 1. In between, however, Thompson's liabilities in coverage mostly relegated him to special teams. He has one more very affordable season remaining on his current contract, and the Cowboys are potentially facing a lot of turnover in their secondary already. However, new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn might decide to clean house as much as possible and send Thompson packing regardless of other moves.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: In line for starting job

    Thompson could be the Week 1 starter at safety opposite Xavier Woods (groin) following the release of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on Thursday, Rob Phillips of DallasCowboys.com reports. Of course, the team could bring in a veteran to fill that role, and the release of Clinton-Dix prompted a new round of speculation regarding the team's interest in Earl Thomas. "We're certainly going to look at all avenues as we move forward here and I wouldn't rule anything out," Cowboys COO Stephen Jones said Thursday. Assuming there's no last-minute additions to the roster, however, Thompson is the most likely candidate to take on the starting job after a strong training camp, although Donovan Wilson has also made a good impression. Cornerbacks Daryl Worley, Reggie Robinson and even Chidobe Awuzie could also be in the mix for snaps at safety, as new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan has stressed flexibility in his secondary during camp. Thompson has starting experience from his days with the Giants, recording 75 tackles, six passes defended and one interception over 16 games in 2017.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Staying in Dallas

    The Cowboys and Thompson agreed to terms on a two-year contract Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Thompson suited up for 435 defensive and 222 special-teams snaps in 2019 for Dallas. Across 15 games, the 26-year-old didn't make much impact as an IDP option, producing 45 tackles (23 solo), 1.5 sacks and three pass breakups. Thompson will likely be deployed in a similar capacity in 2020.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Slated to start Thursday

    Thompson (arm) won't carry an injury designation into Thursday's game against the Bears, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports. Since Jeff Heath (shoulder) has been ruled out, Thompson is expected to make his second straight start. The 26-year-old was solid in Week 13 against the Bills with four tackles, 0.5 sacks and a pass breakup.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Set to start Sunday

    Thompson will start in Xavier Woods' (ankle) place at free safety in Sunday's game against Miami, The Dallas Morning News reports. Thompson has yet to play a defensive snap this season, as he was inactive for the season opener and only saw 11 snaps on special teams in last Sunday's victory over Washington. The last time the 25-year-old saw a starting role was in 2017 with the Giants, when he logged 1,065 defensive snaps, 75 total tackles, six pass breakups and an interception over 16 games.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Misses practice Tuesday

    Thompson was absent from Tuesday's practice while nursing an ankle injury, The Dallas Morning News reports. It's unclear how Thompson picked up the injury, but it was serious enough to force him out of practice. The 25-year-old could be in line for an increased role within the defense, considering he only appeared in 10 games with the team last season. As long as Thompson is sidelined, Donovan Wilson and Tyvis Powell could see an increase in reps.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Staying in Dallas

    Thompson (groin) signed a one-year contract with the Cowboys on Thursday, Todd Archer of ESPN reports. Thompson was a third-round draft pick of the Giants back in 2016 and originally came to Dallas last October when the Cowboys signed him off the Cardinals' practice squad. While the Boise State product didn't see much playing time last year, Archer reports that the Cowboys believe a full year in their offseason program will give the defensive back a chance to contribute on defense.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Will miss divisional round

    Thompson (groin) is officially inactive for Saturday's game against the Rams, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Thompson was a limited participant at practice this week and was listed as questionable. The 25-year-old played a minimal defensive role, so his absence is unlikely to be a significant factor Saturday.

  • Darian Thompson: Waived by Cowboys

    Thompson was waived by Dallas on Saturday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports. Thompson signed to the Cowboys' 53-man roster in early October from the Cardinals' practice squad. The Boise State product has yet to play in a game this season.

  • Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Signs with Dallas

    Thompson signed to Dallas' 53-man roster from the Cardinals' practice squad Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The former Boise State standout started all 16 games for the Giants last season before suffering a hamstring injury in training camp. Thompson has 82 tackles (66 solo) and one interception in his NFL career.

  • Giants' Darian Thompson: Suffers hamstring injury

    Thompson injured his hamstring on a special teams play during Thursday's preseason opener, Dan Duggan of The Athletic New York reports. Thompson appears to have fallen out of favor as the Giants' starting safety, evidenced by his participation on special teams Thursday. A long-term injury won't help his cause, but the extent of his injury has yet to be revealed.

  • Giants' Darian Thompson: Totals 75 tackles in 2017

    Thompson recorded 75 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception over 16 games in 2017. Although he managed to stay injury-free, Thompon's second season in the league was a relative disappointment. Not only was tackling an issue -- Thompson missed 13 tackles throughout the season per Pro Football Focus -- but he didn't fare very well in pass coverage either. However, it's fair to view 2017 as his rookie season since Thompson missed most of the 2016 campaign with a sprained foot. This time around, the Boise State product won't have an injury to worry about as he begins preparations for the 2018 campaign.

  • Giants' Darian Thompson: Slated to start

    Thompson is now healthy and likely to start at safety across from Landon Collins this season, the Giants' official site reports. Thompson was supposed to be the Giants' starting free safety last season, but a foot injury limited the rookie to only two contests. Now healthy, Thompson is looking to make 2017 a bounce-back campaign after spending last season studying the defense on the sideline. However, backup Andrew Adams was impressive during OTAs and could give Thompson a run for his money during training camp.

  • Giants' Darian Thompson: Placed on IR

    Thompson will undergo surgery on his foot and is set to be placed on injured reserve Wednesday. The 23-year-old rookie was expected to be a significant contributor for the Giants this season, after earning the team's starting free safety job during camp this summer. However, after playing in just a pair of games, Thompson suffered a foot injury and has been unable to get on the field since. He's opted to undergo surgery on his foot, so he'll finish his first NFL campaign with seven tackles. Nat Berhe will likely start next to Landon Collins at the two safety spots, although the Giants could very well add some additional depth from the free agent pool.

  • Giants' Darian Thompson: Continuing rehab

    Thompson (foot) is continuing his rehab during the Giants' bye week, Tom Rock of Newsday.com reports. "I'll be around here to continue with my treatment and rehab and stuff," the safety said on Tuesday. Thompson hasn't taken the field since Week 2 but is nearing a comeback after going through running drills this week. Look for more updates on his status to come next week, as the Giants prepare for their Week 9's divisional tilt with the Eagles.

  • Giants' Darian Thompson: Not ready to play

    Thompson (foot) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rams. Thompson, who hasn't suited up since sustaining a sprained foot in Week 2, didn't practice all week and there doesn't appear to be any optimism he'll be back soon.
