Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals activated Thompson off the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Thompson was placed on the list Nov. 24 and forced to miss Week 12's game against the Patriots. Now back healthy and returning to practice, Thompson is expected to assume his usual back-up safety duties behind Budda Baker, seeing the bulk of his snaps on special teams.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Moves to COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

It's unclear if Thompson tested positive for the virus or if he's a high-risk close contact of an infected individual. Regardless, the 23-year-old will be unavailable until he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Clear of injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) isn't listed on Monday's estimated injury report, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The 23-year-old was inactive for Sunday's win over the Bills due to the knee issue, so it's a bit of a surprise to see him absent from the injury report only a day later. Thompson should fill a reserve role Thursday against the Seahawks, but he could have a larger workload if Budda Baker (groin) or Jalen Thompson (shoulder) are unable to play.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Unavailable against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Thompson typically handles a major workload on defense and has compiled 24 tackles (17 solo) and two pass breakups through seven games, but he'll sit out Sunday's cross-conference clash. Chris Banjo figures to take over Thompson's reps behind starters Jalen Thompson and Budda Baker.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Logs nine tackles in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Thompson played in 77 percent of his team's defensive snaps in Week 4, logging 59 snaps. His playing time continues to trend upward, and he made the most of his opportunities Sunday by recording a season-best nine tackles.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Heading toward Week 4 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said Thursday that Thompson will start against the Panthers, Kevin Zimmerman of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Thompson appears set to start at free safety in replacement of Budda Baker (thumb), who underwent surgery to repair a a UCL tear earlier this week. It's also possible that rookie first-round pick Isaiah Simmons could see occasional snaps at safety as long as Baker is sidelined.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Unavailable against Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Thompson will miss the first game of his rookie campaign. Jalen Thompson and Budda Baker have slotted in as the team's starting safeties, but Deionte has served in a respectable role with at least a 38-percent snap share in five straight games. Chris Banjo figures to see an uptick in snaps in Thompson's place.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Questionable for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Thompson did not have a designation prior to his limited session Friday, meaning the safety may have suffered a late-week injury. Generally this is not good news for a player's availability, so it will be worth keeping an eye on Thompson's status as Sunday approaches.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Ready for rookie minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson is fully recovered from the wrist injury that kept him from participating in the NFL Combine in March, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Thompson was a fifth-round selection by the Cardinals in last weekend's draft, and his stock may have dropped a bit due to the wrist injury. However, the 22-year-old has no lingering issues and should participate fully in Arizona's upcoming rookie minicamp. Thompson has the skill set and pedigree -- he started 17 games at safety for Alabama -- of a potential starter, but he seems likely to start out in a special teams role.

Cardinals' Deionte Thompson: Arizona selects in fifth round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals selected Thompson in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 139th overall.

You could make the case for Thompson at a sooner selection than this, as the Alabama product had a wrist injury screw up what could have otherwise been a fruitful pre-draft process. Thompson is a thin safety at 6-foot-1, 194 pounds and that may have led to additional durability concerns, but his skill set is promising, and it's generally a good process to target leading contributors on dominant defenses. The Cardinals will hope he can step up and start over D.J. Swearinger in the next couple years, though special teams appears to be where Thompson is headed for now.
