Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Sitting down Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) has been deemed inactive for Saturday's game against the 49ers.

Thompson's confirmed Week 16 absence marks the 22-year-old's 11th of the season, aligning Chris Banjo for a potential third start in four games at the strong safety spot. Thompson, a Washington State product, missed just one game all of last season after the Cardinals selected him with a fifth-round pick in the 2019 draft.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Week 16 status questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) has been labeled questionable heading into Saturday's game against San Francisco, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The second-year man has struggled to stay on the field this season, posting a total of four starts. An ankle injury kept Thompson on injured reserve for much of September and October, and upon his Week 9 return, he was only capable of mustering three appearances before being shelved once again. The same ankle continues to beleaguer Thompson, but at least he was able to register a trio of limited sessions this week, providing hope for a Week 16 appearance.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Listed as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's practice estimate.

The Cardinals didn't actually take the field Tuesday, but Thompson looks poised to make his first practice appearance in over a month this week. It's still uncertain if he'll be ready for Saturday's game against the 49ers. He's trending in the right direction, though, and he should reclaim the starting strong safety job upon return.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Will miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.

Thompson has yet to practice since suffering this ankle injury back in Week 11. Chris Banjo has been starting in Thompson's place, a trend that is expected to continue in Week 15.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Set to miss third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Thompson will miss a third straight game and isn't making much progress in his recovery, as he didn't practice all week. His next opportunity to play will be a home matchup against the Eagles in Week 14. Chris Banjo is expected to start at strong safety in Week 14 after he registered 10 tackles in Thompson's place last week against the Rams.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Ankle still bothersome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday.

Thompson has missed the last two games with his ankle injury, and this missed practice doesn't bode well for his chances of getting back on the field Sunday against the Giants. The safety will have two more chances to raise his practice participation this week in hopes of suiting up.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Out against Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Thompson didn't practice this week and will miss a second consecutive game. Chris Banjo saw an uptick in snaps with Thompson sidelined last week. Deionte Thompson, who has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, should be in the running for the starting strong safety role as well.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph predicted that Thompson would miss "a game or two" after hurting his ankle in Week 11 against the Seahawks. Thompson already sat out last week's loss to the Patriots, and a DNP to start the week supports the notion that he's in danger of missing a consecutive game. Chris Banjo will continue to handle the first-team practice reps at strong safety until Thompson returns.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Set to miss more time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson is expected to miss a game or two after injuring his ankle in Thursday's loss to the Seahawks, Kevin Zimmerman of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Thompson missed five games with an ankle injury earlier this season, and he aggravated the injury against the Seahawks. The team doesn't believe he'll require another IR stint, but a two-week absence is on the table. Until the second-year safety returns, Chris Banjo is slated to start at safety alongside Budda Baker.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Dealing with injury in ankle again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that Thompson (ankle) aggravated the same ankle injury that landed him on injured reserve earlier this season in Thursday's loss to Seattle, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kingsbury added that he hopes the injury is less severe this time around. While Thompson has the benefit of three extra days off before the team's Week 12 trip to New England, it's concerning that the injury that forced him out of Thursday's game is in the same spot that gave Thompson significant trouble earlier this season.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Leaves with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson will not return to Thursday's game against the Seahawks due to a leg injury, Craig Grialou of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Thompson had to be carted off the field late in the first half due to the severity of his injury. For at least the rest of Thursday's contest, Chris Banjo stands to handle Arizona's strong safety reps.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Back on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) was added to the active roster Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The team took its time activating Thompson, whose 21-day window to be taken off IR was activated back on Oct. 14. The safety will rejoin his teammates on the field Sunday against the Dolphins for his first game action since the season opener.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Designated to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to return from injured reserve, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Thompson hasn't played since Week 1 against the 49ers, but he's eligible to return to the lineup Monday against the Cowboys. If Chris Banjo (hamstring) is able to start alongside Budda Baker, Thompson won't have much of a role on defense should he shake off his injury.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Heads to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals placed Thompson (ankle) on injured reserve Thursday.

Thompson lasted just two plays before leaving the Cards' Week 1 win at San Francisco, the result of an ankle injury. The issue will keep him sidelined until at least Week 5 due to the new IR rules in place this season. In Thompson's place, Chris Banjo entered the lineup at strong safety Sunday and logged 58 of 62 defensive snaps.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) was unable to practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Thompson suffered the injury in Week 1 against the 49ers. Chris Banjo filled in for him at safety for the rest of that contest and would likely earn the start against Washington in Week 2 if Thompson can't go.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Suffers ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson left Sunday's game at San Francisco due to an ankle injury.

The Cardinals don't have an obvious candidate to replace Thompson at strong safety, as the only active safeties other than stud Budda Baker are special teamers Chris Banjo and Charles Washington. Perhaps rookie Isaiah Simmons will get some reps, but he was burned on Raheem Mostert's 76-yard TD and started the ensuing defensive possession on the sideline. In any case, Thompson is questionable to return.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Racks up 57 tackles in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson tallied 57 tackles (45 solo), three pass breakups and one interception in 15 games during the 2019 season.

The Cardinals used a fifth-round pick in July's supplemental draft on Thompson, who was available at that point after the NCAA ruled him ineligible. Over the first four contests of the campaign, he was a healthy scratch one game while playing specifically special teams in the others. Once he got a chance on defense Week 5, though, Thompson was a mainstay in the secondary, starting nine of the final 12 outings at strong safety. Considering his performance, he's likely locked in a role in the first-team defense next to Budda Baker for 2020, at the very least.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Active against Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Thompson suffered a concussion during Week 13's loss to the Rams, but he was able to clear the league's protocol in time. The rookie fifth-round pick has been working as the starting strong safety lately and posted 18 tackles (17 solo) and an interception over the last three games.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Jalen Thompson: Recovering from concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
