Thompson (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Steelers, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Thompson managed to practice in full Friday, but it remains to be seen whether he's fully cleared the league's five-step protocol for head injuries. The rookie fifth-round pick may still need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before retaking the field.
Thompson has a concussion and was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Thompson exited Sunday's loss to the Rams with a head injury, and it's now confirmed he suffered a concussion. The 21-year-old will have to fully clear the concussion protocol before seeing game action.
Thompson suffered a head injury during Sunday's loss to the Rams and is day-to-day, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Coach Kliff Kingsbury didn't report that Thompson was in concussion protocol, and we likely won't get another update on his status until Wednesday's practice report is released. The rookie fifth-rounder has registered 27 tackles over the last five games.
Thompson made five solo tackles and intercepted a pass in Sunday's loss to San Francisco.
It was the first interception and pass breakup of Thompson's career. The 21-year-old has played all but three defensive snaps over the last two games while Deionte Thompson missed Week 10 with a knee injury and played only special teams Sunday.
Thompson totaled eight tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 26-23 victory in Cincinnati.
A fifth-round pick of the Cardinals in July's supplemental draft, Thompson got the first work on defense of his career in this contest and made the most of the elevated role. There was no precipitating factor for him to get sudden run with the first-teamers, so he may be a fixture in game plans moving forward.
