ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is not expected to play Week 7 against the Cowboys.
It is the second week in a row Thompson has practiced all week but sat out the game. Kapri Bibbs should once again fill in as the change-of-pace option, but he saw just three touches last week on 37 percent of the snaps. If anything, Thompson sitting locks Adrian Peterson in as a solid RB2. Oct 20 - 11:50 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) is questionable for Week 7 against Dallas.

Thompson looks on track to return after sitting last week. His status may not be known until game-time, so owners need to have backup plans in place. Thompson will be an RB3/FLEX is he plays.
Oct 19 - 1:52 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) practiced again on Thursday.

Thompson will be slapped with another "limited" tag. Thompson practiced last week before sitting out against the Panthers. There's a good chance Thompson returns against the Cowboys, but he could end up a game-time decision.
Oct 18 - 1:20 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Thompson was limited last Wednesday before ultimately being inactive Week 6 against the Panthers. It's too early to say if he'll play versus Dallas.
Oct 17 - 3:09 PM

The Redskins consider Chris Thompson (knee, ribs) day to day.

Thompson practiced all last week before being deactivated against the Panthers. A "full" session on Wednesday or Thursday would mean Thompson is returning against the Cowboys. Thompson was sorely missed against Carolina. Kapri Bibbs is not an effective player.
Oct 15 - 3:36 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is inactive for Week 6 against the Panthers.

As is Jamison Crowder (ankle). Thompson's absence leaves Adrian Peterson as the unquestioned lead dog in the Redskins' backfield, though change-of-pace Kapri Bibbs should get some decent run. With Crowder out, it will be Jordan Reed #szn against a Panthers defense that has struggled up the seam. Also inactive for the Redskins are OG Shawn Lauvao, DL Caleb Brantley, CB Adonis Alexander, S Troy Apke and OL Geron Christian.
Oct 14 - 11:32 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Thompson (rib, knee) is not expected to play Week 6 against the Panthers.

It is a bit of a surprise considering he was able to practice, albeit on a limited basis, all week. With Thompson out and Adrian Peterson banged up, Kapri Bibbs could see a surprising number of snaps. He is an option for fantasy teams desperate for a starter.
Oct 13 - 11:50 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is questionable for Week 6 against the Panthers.

Thompson is still recovering from the rib injury that limited him in practice this week. There's been no real concern over his status. Thompson is coming off a rough two game stretch, but he's in a solid rebound spot against the Panthers.
Oct 12 - 2:11 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It gives Thompson a shot at suiting up against the Panthers, though he still has a long way to go. We knew Thompson would be listed with his ribs, but the knee is an unwelcome addition.
Oct 11 - 1:34 AM

Chris Thompson rushed eight times for 17 yards and caught 6-of-8 targets for 45 yards in the Redskins' Week 5 loss to the Saints.

Thompson had to leave the game late in the fourth quarter with a ribs injury after Alex Smith threw him a hospital ball at the goal line on a two-point conversion attempt following a Kapri Bibbs rushing score. The Redskins never got the ball back, and Thompson was announced as questionable to return. Thompson was very good the first two weeks of the season but has managed just 34 rushing yards and 45 yards through the air on 21 scoreless touches the last two games. He'll look to rebound next week at home against the Panthers as an RB3 if healthy.
Oct 8 - 11:52 PM

Chris Thompson rushed six times for 17 yards in the Redskins' Week 3 win over the Packers, gaining zero yards on his lone reception.

Thompson stunningly drew just two targets on an afternoon where Alex Smith attempted only 20 passes. The Redskins' offense did not have to do much with the Packers making one mistake after another. Thompson should immediately bounce back when the Redskins come off bye against the Saints in Week 5.
Sep 23 - 6:19 PM

Chris Thompson rushed for just one yard on four carries but made up for that lack of production by snagging 13 catches for a team-leading 92 yards on 14 targets Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 2 loss to the Colts.

A whopping 10 of Thompson’s career-high 13 receptions came after halftime with the Redskins playing from behind. Obviously Thompson had little success as a ball-carrier in this one but he was incredibly efficient as a pass-catcher, hauling in all but one of his 14 targets from Alex Smith. Through two games Thompson has shown zero ill effects from last year’s broken leg and already has the look of a PPR monster. He’ll be a flex consideration against the Packers in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 4:59 PM

Chris Thompson went for 65 yards on five carries while snagging an additional six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown on seven targets Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 1 win over the Cardinals.

Thompson suggested he wouldn’t be 100 percent coming off last year’s broken leg, but if he’s still feeling the effects of that injury, it certainly didn’t show in Sunday’s opener. The fifth-year back was tremendous in all facets, continually breaking off chunk gains as both a ball-carrier and a pass-catcher. He led the team in targets while immediately settling in as Alex Smith’s go-to receiver. Thompson looked plenty healthy in this one and will continue to play a major role as a pass-catching complement to power back Adrian Peterson. The 27-year-old could end up being a monster in PPR leagues this year and should be in line for another big game next week against the Colts.
Sep 9 - 8:12 PM

Chris Thompson (leg) is not listed on the injury report.

It confirms he will be ready to face the Cardinals on Sunday. Thompson sat out the entire preseason after saying he will not be 100 percent until November, but coach Jay Gruden has said the Thompson "looks fantastic." Adrian Peterson is going to start, but it would not be surprising if Thompson ends up the better fantasy bet.
Sep 6 - 9:59 AM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Chris Thompson (leg) "looks fantastic."

Thompson did not play in the preseason as he recovers from the broken leg which ended his 2017, but his coach expects him to be a full-go for Week 1. "He's been great -- his pass blocking and obviously his routes, and he's hitting the hole," Gruden said. "He's ready to go." Even with Adrian Peterson taking on the early-down work, Thompson is a great RB3/FLEX target in PPR drafts.
