Coach Jay Gruden considers Thompson (ribs/knee) "day-to-day," John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
During a Week 5 beatdown in New Orleans, Thompson sustained a rib injury, but not before churning out 62 yards from scrimmage on 14 touches. During Week 6 prep, a knee injury was tacked onto his list of health concerns, and he ended up being inactive this past Sunday against the Panthers. We'll get a better gauge of Thompson's health when the Redskins release their next injury report Wednesday.
Thompson (ribs/knee) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Panthers.
The Redskins will thus be without their top pass-catching back and No. 1 targeted player overall this season. Thompson will join Jamison Crowder (ankle) on the sideline Sunday, allowing Jordan Reed, Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson to see plenty of looks from Alex Smith.
Thompson (ribs/knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, isn't expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Washington passing game looks like it could be in danger of missing several of its top targets. Both Thompson and wide receiver Jamison Crowder (ankle) are listed as questionable but are trending toward inactive statuses in Week 6, while wideouts Josh Doctson (heel) and Paul Richardson (shoulder/ankle) are expected to be game-time calls. If Thompson ends up sitting out, Kapri Bibbs could be in store for a larger load of snaps out of the backfield on obvious passing downs.
Thompson (ribs/knee) is listed as questionable and expected to be a game-time decision Sunday against the Panthers, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
The same goes for Adrian Peterson (shoulder/knee/ankle) as well as wide receivers Jamison Crowder (ankle), Paul Richardson (shoulder/knee) and Josh Doctson (heel). The messy injury report means we'll need to keep a close eye on Washington's inactive list when it comes out around 11:30 AM ET on Sunday, but it does at least seem Thompson is on track to play after logging limited practices throughout the week. He could take on more snaps if Peterson is absent or limited, with the potential for added targets if the injuries at wide receiver prove problematic.
Thompson (ribs/knee) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Thompson had been listed as limited Wednesday when the team only staged a walk-through session and it appears he was unable to dramatically raise his involvement in Thursday's full-pad practice. The running back's restrictions shouldn't be viewed as a major obstacle toward his availability for the Week 6 matchup with the Panthers, as the Redskins likely would have withheld him entirely from Thursday's session if there was any legitimate concern about his health. Even so, he may need to put in a full practice Friday to avoid an injury designation heading into the weekend.
