Thompson was charged with having more than 20 grams of marijuana and drug equipment after a car he was a passenger in was pulled over for driving without headlights.

Deonte Thompson had two catches for 11 yards in Week 5 against Miami.

Thompson played both the slot and on the outside in three-wide sets and finished behind only Torrey Smith with seven targets. He was mostly limited to a situational deep threat role, but managed to a 38-yard pass interference call in the third quarter. Thompson handled kickoff duties and will likely be reduced to special teams when Marlon Brown (hamstring) and Jacoby Jones (knee) return.
