  • Corey Thompson: Jettisoned by Buffalo

    Thompson was let go Friday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. Thompson hung on to a depth roster spot for the past two seasons with the Bills, but with Tyler Matakevich being added in free agency and Andre Smith being signed as a late addition this week, Thompson's odds of making the team became quite a bit longer, and that hope ultimately got squashed Friday. He remains a possibility for the Bills' practice squad.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Sitting out Week 8

    Thompson (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against Philadelphia. Thompson was upgraded this week to a game-time decision after not practicing for nearly a month. It seems as though the 25-year-old is knocking on the door for a return, but he wasn't deemed healthy enough for a Week 8 return. In his stead, look for Julian Stanford and Maurice Alexander to see the bulk of special teams reps while providing depth at linebacker.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Game time-call against Eagles

    Thompson (ankle) will be a game-time call for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports. After not practicing for nearly a month, Thompson got back onto the field in a limited capacity this week. The team will likely want to test how the 25-year-old's ankle responds during pregame warmups before deciding whether to deploy him. Thompson usually sticks to a special-teams role, but he could have an uptick in usage if Matt Milano (hamstring) sits out.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Back at practice

    Thompson practiced on a limited basis Wednesday for the first time since having ankle surgery in late September, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Thompson isn't a sure thing for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Dolphins, though the fact that he's apparently a fast healer -- to go with the team's Week 6 bye week -- has put the special teamer in a position to miss just a pair of games.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Ankle surgery needed

    Thompson has undergone ankle surgery, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. The backup linebacker doesn't have a snap on defense in 2019, but he's a key special teamer and his absence will be felt on those units. Coach Sean McDermott does not believe Thompson's injury will be season-ending, though we'll have to see what the Bills end up doing roster wise.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Makes dent in scoresheet

    Thompson had nine total tackles (four solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to New England. Thompson was just promoted to the active roster in November, but with the Bills working through injuries at linebacker and out of the playoff chase, they're going to give youngsters like him a fair audition. The undrafted rookie from LSU saw action on 64 percent of the defensive snaps, and could be in store for a similar workload in this week's finale against the Dolphins, especially with another linebacker -- Julian Stanford -- getting carted off the field in Week 16.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Promoted to active roster

    Thompson was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Monday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Thompson has yet to play in what is his rookie season, spending the campaign on Buffalo's practice squad thus far. He'll likely operate as a depth defender and special teams player for the Bills. Looking ahead, Thompson could see some action against the Jaguars in Week 12, especially if starting linebacker Matt Milano (concussion) is held out, though Milano is already three steps through the protocol and is working through No. 4 on Monday.
