Tedric Thompson: Let go by Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson was waived by the Chiefs on Saturday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Thompson was a healthy scratch the last two games for Kansas City, so this move is relatively unsurprising. Assuming he clears waivers, the 25-year-old could potentially land on the team's practice squad.

Chiefs' Tedric Thompson: Links up with Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs signed Thompson (shoulder) to a contract Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

Thompson was waived by Seattle back in March due to a failed physical, though it had been previously reported he was at full health. The Chiefs' decision to sign Thompson is now an indication that he's put the shoulder issue behind him. Across three seasons with the Seahawks, Thompson notched 80 tackles, three interceptions and five passes defensed. He'll provide Kansas City with depth at the safety position while Juan Thornhill (knee) continues his rehab.

Tedric Thompson: Not fully healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) was waived by the Seahawks on Tuesday due to a failed physical, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

It was previously reported that Thompson was fully healthy following his release, but it turns out the team was unable to give him a clean bill of health. The move will free up $2.13 million in cap space for the Seahawks. The 25-year-old only saw action in six games in 2019 due to the injury, and Thompson will be free to sign with any team if he goes unclaimed by Wednesday's 4:00 PM ET deadline.

Tedric Thompson: Let go by Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) will be released by the Seahawks, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Per Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune, the move will free up $2.13 million in salary cap space for Seattle. Meanwhile, Anderson notes that the free safety, who landed on IR last October due to a torn shoulder labrum, is now reportedly healthy. Prior to his injury, the 25-year-old recorded 19 tackles and two picks in six games.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Ends year on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) recorded 19 tackles, two pass breakups and two interceptions over six regular-season games in 2019 before landing on injured reserve in late October.

Thompson entered the season as the replacement for free safety Earl Thomas, who left for the Ravens in free agency. Unfortunately, Thompson's season was cut short when he was shut down midseason after undergoing surgery for a torn labrum. Thompson, who will turn 25 years old later in January, started all six games before the injury. He's considered a ball hawk in coverage, but his aggressiveness came with some hiccups that put his starting job in jeopardy before the injury. He has one year remaining on his rookie contract, but Thompson likely won't have a starting role waiting for him in 2020, as the emergence of Quandre Diggs will likely push him to a reserve role.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks placed Thompson (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Thompson is set to undergo surgery to address a torn labrum he'd been playing through. The 24-year-old's placement on IR comes as something of a surprise, considering that he played 100 percent of snaps on defense the last two weeks and hadn't been listed on Seattle's injury report. Marquise Blair is the likeliest candidate to start at free safety for the Seahawks going forward.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Second straight game with pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson made seven tackles (three solo) and nabbed an interception in Sunday's 32-28 win over Cleveland.

It was Thompson's second consecutive game recording an interception, as he notched one of three interceptions thrown by Baker Mayfield in the game. The only negative for Thompson is that he recorded a season-low snap total, participating in just 52 of 69 plays on defense. The 24-year-old safety will draw a tough matchup against the Ravens in Week 7.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Comes up big in divisional win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams with three tackles and an interception.

Thompson's fourth-quarter interception was originally ruled an incomplete pass, but a Seattle challenge resulted in the play being overturned after officials deemed the ball did not hit the ground. It was Thompson's first INT of the season and came in a game that saw the 24-year-old free safety play every snap on defense (72)..

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Regains starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson will start at free safety for Sunday's road game versus the Cardinals, Brady Henderson of reports.

Thompson was the Week 1 starter, but he struggled in the season opener versus the Bengals and then missed the next two games due to a hamstring injury. Delano Hill has started that last two contests. Thompson is back in the fold against the Cardinals' Air Raid offense, but he may be on a short leash with coach Pete Carroll saying Hill played well enough to keep the starting job.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Back to full speed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Thompson has missed the last two games but he'll be ready to go for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals. Whether he resumes his starting gig remains to be seen, however, because he struggled in coverage during his last outing Week 1 versus the Bengals. Delano Hill has been filling in during Thompson's absence, and he showed his own struggles trying to take down Alvin Kamara in Week 3's loss to the Saints. It could shape up to be an open tryout for the rest of this week's practices.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Not playing Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 tilt against the Saints.

The Seahawks will therefore be without their starting free safety versus the Saints, although that isn't anywhere near as daunting as it typically would be. With Drew Brees (thumb) sidelined for New Orleans, the passing game will instead be helmed by Teddy Bridgewater and/or Taysom Hill.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Saints, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

If Thompson suits up for Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, it's still unclear if he'll be the starter after Delano Hill had a solid outing in Thompson's place Week 2. Thompson's IDP value was limited anyway after he made just three tackles in the season opener.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (hamstring) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Thompson suited up to practice for the first time since Week 1, providing some optimism with regards to his Week 3 availability. If the safety ultimately plays, however, there is no guarantee he will step into his regular starting role, given that replacement Delano Hill has done an admirable job in Thompson's stead.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Trending toward another absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. "If not this week, it will be next week. He's right around the corner -- we'll see what happens by the end of the week," coach Pete Carroll said, according to Liz Mathews of USA Today.

With Thompson not practicing and Carroll already looking ahead to Week 4, it seems unlikely he'll shake this injury before Sunday's game versus the Saints. Even if he is able to make a strong recovery and suit up, Thompson isn't guaranteed to get his starting job back, as Delano Hill played well in Week 2.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: May be facing another absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that "it's going to be tough" for Thompson (hamstring) to suit up for Sunday's contest against the Saints, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Thompson missed Sunday's game against the Steelers with this injury after being unable to practice all week. The 24-year-old's starting job was already in jeopardy after a questionable Week 1 performance, and an extended absence from the field certainly doesn't help his case. If Thompson misses Sunday's matchup with New Orleans, Delano Hill would likely see another starting role opposite Bradley McDougald.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Officially out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (hamstring) won't play in Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Thompson was considered a long-shot to play in the game anyway, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. The 2017 fourth-round pick was unable to suit up in practice leading into the game, dealing with the hamstring injury. In his stead, Delano Hill is expected to get the start at safety opposite Bradley McDougald.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Thompson didn't participate in practice this week, supporting the notion that he's not expected to play. In his stead, either Delano Hill or Marquise Blair are likely to start at safety next to Bradley McDougald. Thompson's starting job was in jeopardy after a poor Week 1 showing, so a strong performance by his either of his replacements could bump him into a reserve role going forward.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Thompson drew criticism after the season opener since he jumped too early and whiffed on an interception, which allowed Bengals WR John Ross to waltz into the end zone for a 58-yard score. Although there was no official word, Thompson's starting job has been called into question, and this injury won't help his cause. For the time being, Delano Hill will work as Seattle's starting free safety.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: Steps up as needed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson made 57 tackles, three pass breakups and an interception in 14 games during the 2018 season.

Thompson worked in a situational role until Earl Thomas suffered a broken leg in Week 4. After that, he jumped into a full-time starter position and averaged 60 defensive snaps per game, and Thompson played all 75 snaps in the playoff loss to Dallas. Thompson is in line to be the starting strong safety in 2019 as the roster stands now.

Seahawks' Tedric Thompson: On track to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson does not have an injury designation for Saturday's wild-card game against the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Thompson is managing an ankle issue, but he appears on track to play through the injury versus the Cowboys. The 23-year-old will draw his usual start at strong safety, barring any setbacks.
