Thompson agreed to a one-year contract with the Jaguars on Friday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
After spending the first seven seasons of his career in the nation's capital, Thompson hit free agency this offseason and has found a new home close to his hometown and near his college locale of Florida State. Top running back Leonard Fournette increased his involvement in the passing game last season by posting a career-high 76 grabs, but that number should shrink with Thompson, a pass-catching specialist, in the fold.
Thompson is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason, Ryan Homler of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Thompson still offers appeal as a passing-down specialist, with potential to establish a degree of fantasy value if he lands on a team that's committed to feeding him snaps and targets. However, he's 29 years old and hasn't played more than 11 games in a season since 2016, so he may need to settle for a short-term contract without much guaranteed money. Thompson finished the 2019 campaign with 37 carries for 138 yards and 42 receptions for 378 yards on 58 targets, failing to score a touchdown in 11 games. His chances to return to Washington partially depend on whether the team's new general manager and head coach -- whoever they might be -- believe Derrius Guice can stay healthy and handle passing downs.
Thompson carried eight times for 34 yards and caught all four of his targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Giants.
Thompson averaged a respectable 4.3 yards per carry on a season-high eight totes, but he was uncharacteristically quiet as a receiver despite the high-scoring nature of the game. Still, his 12 touches were also his high-water mark of the season, and he should remain involved next Sunday in the season finale against the Cowboys.
Thompson recorded two receptions on three targets for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.
Thompson did not record a single carry. It's the second straight week the veteran back's only contributions have come in the passing game -- a trend which may continue as the season winds down, even with Derrius Guice (knee) on IR.
Thompson did not log any carries but brought in seven of eight targets for 43 yards in the Redskins' 20-15 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
The veteran pass-catching specialist was in his domain Sunday, pacing the Redskins in receptions while serving as a frequent safety valve for rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Thompson benefited from Derrius Guice's early exit from the game with a knee injury, and he'd presumably be in line for more snaps if Guice is forced to miss any time. Thompson's next chance to make an impact will come in a Week 15 battle against the Eagles.
Thompson (toe) carried three times for 14 yards and caught one of two targets for an additional 15 yards during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Panthers.
Thompson, who returned from a long injury absence, was seemingly eased back into action. Meanwhile, Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice combined for 25 touches and three touchdowns while carrying the team to an improbable road victory. Thompson could become a bigger factor in the passing game next Sunday against the Packers, but the presence of his two aforementioned teammates could limit his upside.
Thompson (toe) is active for Sunday's game at Carolina.
In his first game action since Week 6, Thompson is expected to take on his usual pass-catching role out of the Redskins' backfield, causing the Redskins to make Wendell Smallwood a healthy scratch. As he joins fellow backs Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice, it remains to be seen if Thompson will approach the 10.2 touches per game that he saw through the first six contests of the campaign.
Thompson (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Carolina, but coach Bill Callahan expects the running back to be active, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Thompson is on track for his first appearance since Week 6, presumably taking over for Wendell Smallwood on passing downs. The 29-year-old likely will form a three-headed backfield along with Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson, making it difficult to count on any one player for considerable volume or fantasy production.
Thompson (toe) was listed as a limited on Thursday's practice report.
Thompson maintained his activity level from Wednesday, but interim coach Bill Callahan told John Keim of ESPN.com that the veteran back is progressing in his recovery from a turf toe injury. Whether or not Thompson makes the requisite headway and gets clearance to play Sunday at Carolina remains to be seen. Friday's report will reveal his odds to suit up for the first time since Week 6.
Thompson (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Thompson logged a trio of limited practices last week before he ultimately sat out a fifth straight game in Sunday's win over the Lions. While it's good to see the veteran maintain the same level of participation from where he left off last week, he'll probably need to upgrade to full activity before the Redskins are confident he's ready for game action. With Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson (toe) and Wendell Smallwood all factors in the Washington backfield, Thompson may not be asked to take back his usual high-volume pass-catching role once he gains clearance to play again.
Thompson (toe) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Thompson took a step forward this week by participating in practice on a limited basis on three occasions, but the Redskins likely want to see him put in a full workout before clearing him for game action. With Thompson sidelined for a fifth straight contest, Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice and Wendell Smallwood should be in line to split the backfield snaps in Week 12, with Peterson and Guice representing the better bets to deliver fantasy value.
The Redskins aren't optimistic that Thompson (toe), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, will be available to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Sidelined for the past four games with a sprained toe, Thompson put himself in the mix for a potential return this week after practicing in limited fashion from Wednesday through Friday. While Thompson isn't believed to have suffered any setbacks since he resumed practicing, the Redskins may be more inclined to see him put in an unrestricted session before clearing him for game action. His status for Week 12 will ultimately be determined after he goes through a pregame workout, but the early expectation is that he'll be included among the team's seven inactives. Official word on that front should arrive 90 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. ET kickoff.
Thompson (toe) remained limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Detroit
Bill Callahan said he expects Adrian Peterson (toe) to play through a questionable tag, while the coach was less confident in Thompson's availability, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports. Even if he does end up active, Thompson likely will be restricted to passing downs. Washington's inactive list will be available around 11:30 a.m. ET on Sunday.
Thompson (toe) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Thompson's participation level held steady from Wednesday, when he put in his first practice activity of any kind since suffering a turf toe injury in Week 6. While Thompson seems to be in a better spot on the health front compared to previous weeks, he may need to upgrade to full participation Friday in order to play Sunday against the Lions.
Thompson (toe) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Thompson has been listed as a non-participant on every Redskins injury report issued since Oct. 11, with the string of absences being the result of a turf toe injury suffered Week 6 at Miami. In his absence, Adrian Peterson handled the bulk of the backfield reps while gutting through various injuries, but second-year back Derrius Guice returned to action last weekend versus the Jets, turning eight touches into 69 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown. If Thompson gains clearance to play Sunday against the Lions, he would likely take on a pass-catching role out of the backfield. That said, the presence of Peterson and Guice hinders his potential to produce.
Thompson (toe) returned to practice Wednesday, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports.
While Thompson took the field, Adrian Peterson didn't, leaving some question marks for the Redskins' backfield as the team begins Week 12 prep. Derrius Guice fared well in his return to action last weekend versus the Jets, playing 28 percent of the offensive snaps en route to logging eight touches for 69 yards and a touchdown. There's no telling whether Thompson will be cleared to play this Sunday against the Lions, but if he does, it's a good bet he would take on a change-of-pace role behind Guice and/or Peterson.
Thompson (toe) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Thompson was unable to make any notable strides in his recovery from the sprained toe this week, failing to practice in any fashion Wednesday through Friday. Though Thompson will be inactive for a fourth straight game, Washington will get some reinforcement in the backfield this week with the return of Derrius Guice (knee), who was reinstated from injured reserve. Interim coach Bill Callahan suggested earlier this week that Guice would serve as a change-of-pace option Sunday behind lead runner Adrian Peterson.
Interim coach Bill Callahan said Thompson (toe) is still sidelined, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
Until Thompson makes his first appearance at practice since picking up turf toe Week 6, he'll won't be a part of the Redskins' backfield plans. Expect Adrian Peterson to continue to lead the way, though second-year back Derrius Guice is slated to get plenty of opportunities as well, per JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington.
Thompson (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Buffalo, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Thompson hasn't logged any level of practice participation since injuring his toe Week 6. Wendell Smallwood will continue to handle passing downs behind Adrian Peterson.
Thompson (toe) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.
Thompson has yet to practice since injuring his toe Week 6 at Miami. Despite this fact, he's considered day-to-day, per Ben Standig of The Athletic. Both Thompson and Adrian Peterson (ankle) haven't taken the field this week, which could give Wendell Smallwood and Craig Reynolds an opportunity to contribute this weekend in the event one or both are limited or sidelined.
