Thompson (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for a few weeks, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Previous reports indicated that Thompson was dealing with a knee issue but it actually appears that his ankle is what is bothering him at the moment. Thompson's roster spot seems like it could be in jeopardy given his absence, but that's more speculation than anything else.
Thompson signed a contract with the Rams on Wednesday, ESPN's Alden Gonzalez reports.
Thompson, who went undrafted out of Ole Miss in 2015, was out of the league last season after spending his rookie year with the Texans. He's only tallied two tackles across two game appearances and likely won't push for anything more than a depth role at outside linebacker with the Rams.
