Thomas (hamstring) is inactive Week 12 against the Giants, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.
The stage was set here after Thomas missed Friday's practice and entered the week with a "doubtful" tag. He'll now set his sights on a Week 13 return for a matchup against Miami, though even if he makes it back on the field, it will likely be in a depth role.
Thomas (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants.
After logging a limited practice Thursday, Thomas took a step back by sitting out of Friday's session, thus making him unlikely to play Sunday. With John Ross (foot) on IR and Auden Tate on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Alex Erickson figures to slot in as the No. 4 wide receiver behind starters Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.
Thomas (hamstring) participated in a limited fashion during Thursday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Thomas has been dealing with the injury for the past week and was held out of the team's Week 11 contest as a result. He was also a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, so this progress is a good sign for his potential availability in Week 12. If he's able to take the field, Thomas could see an increased role with Auden Tate (COVID-19) unlikely to be available.
Thomas (hamstring) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 26-year-old was unavailable for Sunday's loss to Washington and continues to deal with the hamstring injury. Thomas likely needs to practice in the next two days to have a chance of suiting up Sunday against the Giants.
Thomas (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game versus Washington, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.
Thomas will miss a game for the first time since the 2018 season. His role on offense has been consistent all year; he's played around 30 percent of the snaps each game, and his absence should open the door for both Auden Tate and Alex Erickson to handle larger roles Sunday, while Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and A.J. Green start at wide receiver, per usual.
The Bengals list Thomas as questionable with a hamstring injury for Sunday's game against Washington, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
Thomas was added to the injury report Thursday after practicing on a limited basis, and his questionable designation implies he wasn't able to shake the hamstring issue completely during Friday's practice. If he gains clearance for Sunday, Thomas will be in line for a depth role in Cincinnati's receiving corps, as Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and A.J. Green are locked in as the team's clear top-three wideouts.
Thomas played only six snaps and had zero targets in Sunday's win over the Titans.
Auden Tate had a big day on Sunday, relegating Thomas to a WR5 role for the Bengals. Even with John Ross inactive, Thomas needs a few injuries to move into a role where he's getting more than a handful of snaps.
Thomas had two catches for 54 yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to the Browns, dropping one ball on the third target.
Thomas isn't going to get the volume necessary to be useful in most fantasy formats -- he has yet to see more than four targets in a game -- but he is at least ahead of John Ross in the Bengals' pecking order.
Thomas caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Colts.
Thomas continues to operate as the No. 4 receiver behind Tyler Boyd, A.J. Green and rookie Tee Higgins. He's now totaled 11 receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown. Barring an injury to one of the starters, though, Thomas' fantasy value is negligible.
Thomas caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens and lost a fumble on that reception that was returned for a touchdown.
Despite the lost fumble, Thomas might be in line for more opportunities next week against the Colts if A.J. Green's hamstring injury keeps him sidelined.
Thomas caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He was on the field for 25 offensive snaps.
The ascendance of rookie Tee Higgins has limited Thomas's ability to make an impact. Quarterback Joe Burrow has also started throwing more to tight end Drew Sample. Thomas's chances of gaining fantasy relevance now seem to be tied to one of the top three Bengals receivers missing time.
Thomas had two catches for nine yards on two targets in the Week 3 tie against the Eagles. He was on the field for 16 offensive snaps.
Thomas played less and was targeted less frequently than Tee Higgins and even Auden Tate. He had established a connection with Joe Burrow in training camp that revealed itself earlier in the season, especially in Week 2 against the Browns when he scored, but he's a rotation player and not a mainstay right now.
Thomas brought in all four of his targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' 35-30 loss to the Browns on Thursday.
Thomas became the second Bengals pass-catcher to haul in a scoring throw from Joe Burrow in the contest, making his grab on a nifty slant pattern with 5:55 remaining to help bring Cincinnati within five points at the time. While Thomas figures to have an uphill battle for targets each week with the quartet of A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and John Ross in front of him on the depth chart, the veteran has a respectable seven looks through two games and could potentially benefit on occasion from the attention heaped on his teammates.
Thomas caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Chargers.
Thomas logged 15 offensive snaps -- tied with Auden Tate and rookie second-round pick Tee Higgins -- and was just one of four wide receivers to garner a target in the season opener. This trend likely won't keep up as Higgins gets more comfortable in the NFL.
The Bengals have signed Thomas, Dave Clark of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 2016 sixth-rounder logged just two catches for 14 yards in 16 games with the Rams last season, but he'll provide the Bengals with added wideout/special teams depth. Signing with Cincinnati reunites the 25-year-old with head coach Zac Taylor, who served as the Rams' assistant wide receivers coach in 2017, Thomas' second campaign with Los Angeles.
Thomas had two receptions for 14 yards in 16 games this season.
The 25-year-old was limited to playing special teams for most of the season, accruing only 34 offensive snaps all year. Thomas' rookie deal is now completed, and he had 10 catches for 144 yards with one lost fumble in 40 games over his four seasons with the Rams.
Thomas (illness) practiced in full Friday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Thomas was held out of Thursday's session after falling ill but looks to be set to play Week 17. Thomas is more of a special teams player than anything else, so do not expect him to make much offensive impact during Sunday's season finale.
Thomas missed Thursday's practice with an illness, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
There's been no news as to the nature or seriousness of the illness as of yet. Thomas has been primarily a special-teams player this season seeing just seven offensive snaps over the last five weeks.
Thomas caught his only target for a five-yard gain during Sunday's 44-21 loss to Dallas.
Thomas' reception was just his second of the season and first since Week 11. The Rams generally keep with three-receiver sets, and with Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Brandin Cooks and Josh Reynolds all vying for those snaps, there is seldom much of an opportunity for Thomas to contribute. Given his lack of opportunities and Sunday's matchup against San Francisco, the league's top pass defense, Thomas figures to be a poor fantasy play.
Thomas played a season-high 20 offensive snaps Sunday in the Rams' 17-7 win over the Bears, finishing with one catch for nine yards on three targets.
After playing almost exclusively on special teams while drawing just one target through the Rams' first 10 games, Thomas saw his profile on offense grow out of necessity with Los Angeles down two of its top three receivers in Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Robert Woods (personal). Coach Sean McVay expressed optimism that Cooks would be back for the Rams' Week 12 game against the Ravens, a development that would leave no room for Thomas in three-receiver sets.
