Redskins' Chris Thompson: Expected to return for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jay Gruden indicated Wednesday that Thompson (lower leg) has made "unbelievable progress" and he anticipates him being healthy for training camp, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Thompson missed the final six games of the 2017 campaign due to a fractured fibula suffered in November. The team hadn't previously revealed a timeline for his return to action, but Gruden's comments put a positive spin on his recovery and outlook to begin 2018. When healthy, Thompson should return to the primary pass-catching role out of the backfield for Washington. However, the addition of rookie running back Derrius Guice in the second round threatens to cut significantly into the workload of Thompson, Samaje Peine and Rob Kelley (ankle) this season. Thompson may be least impacted by the addition given Guice's reported struggles as a receiver, potentially affording him more playing time than his counterparts.

Redskins' Chris Thompson: Absent from OTA session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (lower leg) remained on the sideline during Wednesday's OTA session, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Thompson continues to recover from a fibula fracture suffered in November and the team has yet to reveal his timeline for a return to action. When healthy, he will rejoin a backfield comprised of Samaje Perine, Rob Kelley (ankle) and second-round pick Derrius Guice. Guice could challenge for considerable playing time immediately in the nation's capital, but Thompson would feel the impact of that change the least due to the rookie's struggles as a pass-catcher.

Redskins' Chris Thompson: Joined by Guice in backfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (leg) will be joined by second-round pick Derrius Guice in the Washington backfield, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports.

The new acquisition is a threat to Kelley and Perine more so than Thompson, who is well established as one of the better passing-down backs in the league. For all his talent as a runner, Guice had only 32 catches in 35 career games at LSU, offering little as a receiver or pass blocker. He doesn't figure to see work on passing downs as a rookie, but his presence could inspire the Redskins to put a greater emphasis on their running game, which in turn would keep Thompson off the field. The larger concern is Thompson's recovery from early-December surgery to repair a fractured fibula, though he seems to be progressing on schedule. The Redskins hope he'll be available in some capacity for OTAs in May.

Redskins' Chris Thompson: Could return for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (leg/ankle) made it through Monday's on-field workout without incident, potentially setting him up for some degree of participation in Organized Team Activities (OTAs) in May, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins' official website reports.

Thompson fractured his fibula Nov. 19, bringing an early end to a breakout campaign that included 39 catches, 804 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns in 10 games. His walking boot came off in early February, and Monday marked his return to on-field running drills (albeit without making any cuts). Thompson isn't too worried about the fibula fracture, but he does have some concerns about his recovery from the accompanying ligament damage in his ankle . While he's not expected to be a full go for OTAs, his doctor believes he could be healthy enough to participate in some individual drills, which would give Thompson a chance to get accustomed to Alex Smith's throwing motion. Redskins coach Jay Gruden expects to use an early draft pick on a running back, but he's likely looking to add competition for Rob Kelley (ankle) and Samaje Perine on early downs, rather than for Thompson on passing downs.

Redskins' Chris Thompson: Running on field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (leg) will run on a field Monday for the first time since suffering a fractured fibula Nov. 19, according to his twitter account.

Thompson is said to be making good progress, though he admits he's a bit nervous about the big step forward Monday. He previously said he hoped to be ready for OTAs in May, and he should remain on track if there aren't hitches with his return to on-field running. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said there's a good chance the team uses an early draft pick on a running back, but that would seem to be a commentary on Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) and Samaje Perine more so than Thompson. The 2013 fifth-round pick is well established as one of the top passing-down backs in the league, coming off a 2017 season in which he caught 39 of 54 targets for 510 yards and four touchdowns in only 10 games, adding 64 carries for 294 yards (4.6 average) and another two scores for good measure.
