The Denver Post's Troy Renck reported the expectation is Broncos RB Juwan Thompson did not suffer a serious neck injury Week 3 against the Lions.

Thompson was forced to leave the game after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit in the second quarter. He never returned. Thompson is the Broncos' No. 3 running back behind C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman.

Juwan Thompson exited Sunday night's Week 3 game against the Lions with a neck injury.

He's done for the game. Thompson took a helmet-to-helmet hit on a goal-line carry in the second quarter. It's possible he could be looking at a multi-week absence. Thompson had 11 yards on three carries.
Sep 27 - 9:54 PM

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson managed 12 yards on eight carries and caught an 18-yard pass in Denver's preseason opener against Seattle.

More disappointing than Thompson's weak per-carry average was his involvement from a depth chart standpoint; he worked as the clear No. 4 running back behind C.J. Anderson, Montee Ball, and Ronnie Hillman. Beat writer Mike Klis reported very early in camp that Thompson was challenging Ball to be No. 2 on the depth chart. That dream appears to be on hold, at least for now.
Aug 15 - 8:49 AM

Second-year RB Juwan Thompson is reportedly challenging for the Broncos' No. 2 running back job.

Thompson averaged 5.0 yards on 54 carries as an undrafted rookie out of Duke last season, scoring three touchdowns. He's reportedly putting heat on Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman behind C.J. Anderson. "Forty (Thompson's number) looked unbelievable today," coach Gary Kubiak said after Saturday's practice. "He's built for what we do." It's time to add Thompson in all Dynasty leagues and put him on the re-draft sleeper radar.
Aug 1 - 9:48 PM

Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) returned to Broncos practice on Friday.

The Broncos play Monday night, so they won't announce injury statuses until Saturday. But Thompson looks on track to back up C.J. Anderson against the Bengals. His workload is unclear with Ronnie Hillman possibly returning.

Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) was sidelined Thursday.

Thompson's status for Monday Night Football appears uncertain. If he can't go, Ronnie Hillman (foot) may finally be ready to return as C.J. Anderson's backup.

Juwan Thompson rushed four times for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win at San Diego.

Thompson oddly lost two breather back carries to Jeremy Stewart. Regardless, no one is unseating C.J. Anderson, who piled up 29 more carries Sunday. Thompson will be fighting with Ronnie Hillman for scraps in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 07:58:00 PM

Juwan Thompson rushed four times for 63 yards and caught one pass for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Bills.

With C.J. Anderson rolling his ankle a couple times, Thompson got a few more chances than expected. He made the most of them by showing serious burst for a player that goes 225 pounds. Thompson is the handcuff to Anderson until Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball return from injury. They are both more week to week than day to day.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 07:24:00 PM

Juwan Thompson had 10 carries for 39 yards in Week 13 against the Chiefs.

Thompson played a limited role behind C.J. Anderson, with the majority of his carries coming in the fourth quarter. He'll be nothing more than a touchdown-dependent RB4 in Week 14.
Mon, Dec 1, 2014 01:08:00 AM

Juwan Thompson rushed five times for 33 yards in Denver's Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

Operating as C.J. Anderson's clear backup, Thompson was out-touched 31-5 by Denver's latest starter. The closest Thompson got to the goal line was a second-quarter carry from the Dolphins' seven. He gained two yards. Thompson will be a touchdown-dependent RB4 for next week's game against the Chiefs.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 08:25:00 PM

Juwan Thompson caught one pass for three yards in the Broncos' Week 11 loss to the Rams.

He didn't carry the ball. Thompson entered the day as the No. 3 back to C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball, but was moved up to No. 3 in the first half after Ball aggravated his groin injury. Anderson served in an every-down role, notching 17 touches. With Ball and Ronnie Hillman (foot) looking at extended absences, Thompson will be the No. 2 to Anderson for the foreseeable future.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 06:02:00 PM

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson managed eight yards on four carries in Denver's Week 10 win over the Raiders.

For the second straight week, Thompson was the No. 3 back in Denver's rotation, playing behind Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. As the Raiders built a 41-10 lead by late in the third quarter, Thompson was still utilized minimally. With Montee Ball (groin) due back in Week 11, Thompson has little to no value in 12- and 14-team fantasy leagues.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 08:07:00 PM

Juwan Thompson (knee) is probable for Week 10.

Thompson has been playing through a knee issue the last three games, but it's not a concern. With Montee Ball close to returning, Thompson will be relegated to a reserve role.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 04:58:00 PM

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson (knee) is practicing in full for Week 10.

Thompson has been playing through his knee issue for weeks. The question is his place on the depth chart, as Montee Ball (groin) could return against the Raiders. Thompson is safely droppable in 12-14 team leagues.
