Thompson (biceps) has returned to practice in full, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Thompson left practice early last week due to a bicep issue but it appears he's now past the ailment.
Thompson, who converted from cornerback to free safety last offseason, finished the 2016 season with five tackles on defense and six on special teams across 15 game appearances. He'll likely enter the 2017 campaign in a backup role behind starter Tashaun Gipson.
Thompson endured a one-game absence after injuring his ankle in Week 13 against the Broncos, but he's in line to return Sunday against the Texans. He figures to back up Tashaun Gipson at free safety per usual.
Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Thompson was forced to the sideline during last week's loss to the Broncos, and the issue is severe enough to keep him out in Week 14. Expect Tashaun Gipson to continue drawing the start at free safety for Jacksonville.
