Corey Thompson: Jettisoned by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson was let go Friday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Thompson hung on to a depth roster spot for the past two seasons with the Bills, but with Tyler Matakevich being added in free agency and Andre Smith being signed as a late addition this week, Thompson's odds of making the team became quite a bit longer, and that hope ultimately got squashed Friday. He remains a possibility for the Bills' practice squad.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Misses Tuesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson missed Tuesday's practice due to knee soreness, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Thompson is trying to cement a spot for the third straight season with the Bills, where he would serve as a depth linebacker and special teams guy if he makes it.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Thompson hasn't suited up for regular-season action since Week 3 due to a lingering ankle issue, but he appears on track to retake the field Sunday versus Washington. The 25-year-old stands to contribute on special teams and provide depth at the linebacker position when cleared to play.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Sitting out Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Thompson was upgraded this week to a game-time decision after not practicing for nearly a month. It seems as though the 25-year-old is knocking on the door for a return, but he wasn't deemed healthy enough for a Week 8 return. In his stead, look for Julian Stanford and Maurice Alexander to see the bulk of special teams reps while providing depth at linebacker.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Game time-call against Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) will be a game-time call for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

After not practicing for nearly a month, Thompson got back onto the field in a limited capacity this week. The team will likely want to test how the 25-year-old's ankle responds during pregame warmups before deciding whether to deploy him. Thompson usually sticks to a special-teams role, but he could have an uptick in usage if Matt Milano (hamstring) sits out.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Still unable to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson, who hasn't played since undergoing ankle surgery in late September, was limited during Wednesday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The special teams stud is inching his way back to action, perhaps even quicker than expected given the severity of the injury. However, given that Thompson is a depth player, the Bills likely will make sure he's fit enough to make it through a full game healthy before making him active for game day.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Won't play in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) is officially Inactive for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins.

Thompson only practiced on a limited basis this week after having ankle surgery in late September. The linebacker is still looking for his first defensive snap of the season, so his absence likely will be only felt on special teams. Look for Julian Stanford and Maurice Alexander to be the primary beneficiaries for an increased snap count with both Thompson and Matt Milano (hamstring) sidelined.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Questionable designation for Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Friday for the third straight day and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Thompson makes a difference for the Bills on special teams, but he's still looking for his his first defensive snap of the season. He's simply a nice role player for Buffalo.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson practiced on a limited basis Wednesday for the first time since having ankle surgery in late September, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Thompson isn't a sure thing for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Dolphins, though the fact that he's apparently a fast healer -- to go with the team's Week 6 bye week -- has put the special teamer in a position to miss just a pair of games.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Out against Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Titans.

Thompson will miss his second straight game after missing every practice this week. The Bills have a bye week next, so Thompson will look to rest up and be ready for Week 7's game versus the Dolphins.

September 27, 2019 01:04 PM
Bills' Corey Thompson: Officially ruled out vs. Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Patriots, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Thompson has just undergone surgery on his injured ankle. The reserve linebacker is likely facing a multi-week absence, but the Bills are yet to provide any clarity on Thompson's timetable for a recovery.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Ankle surgery needed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson has undergone ankle surgery, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The backup linebacker doesn't have a snap on defense in 2019, but he's a key special teamer and his absence will be felt on those units. Coach Sean McDermott does not believe Thompson's injury will be season-ending, though we'll have to see what the Bills end up doing roster wise.

September 22, 2019 12:04 PM
Bills' Corey Thompson: Active Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Thompson was listed as questionable for Sunday's game after being held out of Friday's practice session. He's only seen action on special teams through the first-two weeks and he'll likely see a similar role against Cincinnati.

September 20, 2019 04:20 PM
Bills' Corey Thompson: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Thompson practiced in full Wednesday and Thursday but was a non-participant Friday. The nature of his ankle injury remains unknown, but it appears as though the reserve linebacker's status for Week 3 could come down to a game-time call.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Back in action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (groin) logged one tackle in 15 defensive snaps in Friday's 24-20 preseason win over the Lions.

A groin injury had hindered Thompson's participation in practice, but he returned to game action Friday as the issue no longer appears to be a concern. He'll continue to battle for the primary backup role behind veteran starting linebacker Lorenzo Alexander.

August 12, 2019 09:48 AM
Bills' Corey Thompson: Sidelined by groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson missed practice Sunday due to a groin injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Thompson has been having a strong camp and, assuming the injury isn't serious, has gone from a roster bubble guy to a player who seems nearly certain to make the roster as the main backup linebacker to veteran starter Lorenzo Alexander.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Working on roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson received work with the first unit Sunday, while veteran teammate Lorenzo Alexander received a rest day, John Murphy of the Bills' official site reports.

Thompson is a second-year undrafted free agent out of LSU who saw six games' worth of action with the Bills last season, more of it coming from special teams. However, he showed what he could do in his lone start -- a big nine-tackle, one forced-fumble game against the Patriots in Week 16. Thompson's ability to back up Alexander and contribute on special teams should land him a roster spot. If injuries should strike, the starting linebackers on Sean McDermott teams tend to accrue noteworthy stats.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Makes dent in scoresheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had nine total tackles (four solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to New England.

Thompson was just promoted to the active roster in November, but with the Bills working through injuries at linebacker and out of the playoff chase, they're going to give youngsters like him a fair audition. The undrafted rookie from LSU saw action on 64 percent of the defensive snaps, and could be in store for a similar workload in this week's finale against the Dolphins, especially with another linebacker -- Julian Stanford -- getting carted off the field in Week 16.

Bills' Corey Thompson: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Monday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

Thompson has yet to play in what is his rookie season, spending the campaign on Buffalo's practice squad thus far. He'll likely operate as a depth defender and special teams player for the Bills. Looking ahead, Thompson could see some action against the Jaguars in Week 12, especially if starting linebacker Matt Milano (concussion) is held out, though Milano is already three steps through the protocol and is working through No. 4 on Monday.
