The Rams promoted Thompson to their 53-man roster Saturday.
With Connor Barwin (arm) out Sunday the Rams called up Thompson to their active roster in order to improve depth at outside linebacker. He is likely to back up Samson Ebukam in the team's Week 13 matchup versus the Cardinals.
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.
