Jaguars RB Chris Thompson has been placed on IR with the back injury he suffered in last week's loss to the Packers. He'll miss at least the next 3 games. Dare Ogunbowale replaced Thompson as Jacksonville's chance-of-pace back vs. Green Bay, but James Robinson will continue to dominate backfield work here.

Jaguars RB Chris Thompson suffered a back injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Packers and is officially questionable to return. If he doesn't, James Robinson figures to handle 100% of Jacksonville's RB touches.

The Jaguars placed RB Chris Thompson on the COVID list. He'll miss Sunday's game against the Chargers -- and potentially more action beyond that. In a corresponding move, RB Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) was activated from IR. Ozigbo looked set to play a big role for the Jags this season before a September hamstring injury sidelined him. James Robinson has taken over Jacksonville's backfield since, but we'll see what kind of role Ozigbo can carve out.

Jaguars RB Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) has been placed on IR. That knocks him out for at least the first 3 games of the season. With RB Ryquell Armstead on the COVID list, Jacksonville is down to RBs James Robinson, Chris Thompson and newly signed Dare Ogunbowale. Robinson is now a safe bet to lead the way in carries in this weekend's opener against the Colts. Thompson should handle the majority of the passing-game work.

Jaguars RB Devine Ozigbo was held out of Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. That puts his availability for this weekend's opener against the Colts in question. Jacksonville signed former Bucs RB Dare Ogunbowale on Wednesday, which might be a sign that Ozigbo will miss Week 1. We'll get another update on his status on Thursday.

The Jaguars' initial -- "unofficial" -- depth chart lists rookie RB James Robinson as the starter, with Devine Ozigbo and Chris Thompson following him on the depth chart. There are varying levels of truth to these things by team, so we wouldn't go trusting this completely. Let's treat it as a reminder, though, that Jacksonville sports a muddled backfield on what figures to be 1 of the league's worst teams. As long as you're not over-invested in any Jaguars RB, you're doing it right. Robinson, Ozigbo and Thompson should all be rostered in most leagues of 12+ teams with 2+ slots where RBs can start. Thompson's past receiving production and history with OC Jay Gruden makes him the best initial bet for role/touches.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone says it will be "a while" before RB Ryquell Armstead is ready to play. Armstead is back on the COVID list after opening camp there. He also missed time this summer with a groin injury, so he hasn't practiced much. It'll be Devine Ozigbo, Chris Thompson and James Robinson in Jacksonville's backfield at least for Week 1. None is an exciting fantasy option out of the gate -- but they're all worth stashing in most leagues.

The Jaguars have placed RB Ryquell Armstead on the COVID list. It's the 2nd time he's landed there. Armstead also dealt with a groin injury throughout camp, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco. It's looking like it'll be Chris Thompson, Devine Ozigbo and James Robinson in Jacksonville's backfield for Week 1.

The Jaguars are, in fact, done with RB Leonard Fournette. According to multiple reports, the team is releasing the former 1st-round pick. This relationship has been headed for a bad ending for a couple of years now, but this is still a shocking ending: dumping Fournette for absolutely no return. That suggests some continued off-field issues with the RB. We'd still bet on another team taking a shot on Fournette now that there's no risk. Jacksonville, meanwhile, will apparently turn its backfield over to a committee of Ryquell Armstead, Chris Thompson and Devine Ozigbo. We'll see if the Jags add anyone else before the regular season. There's no player in the remaining backfield worth committing to strongly, but the opportunity upside is obvious for any Jaguars RB who makes it to the double-digit rounds of your draft.

The Jaguars have signed RB Chris Thompson to a 1-year deal. He's reuniting with OC Jay Gruden in Jacksonville after the pair spent the past 6 seasons together in Washington. Thompson has struggled with injuries throughout his career but averaged 3.4 catches and 29 receiving yards per game over the last 5 years. If healthy, he figures to take a big bite out of RB Leonard Fournette's pass-catching production.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 6. Thompson should step back in as Washington’s primary pass-catching back but would be a desperation fantasy play today. RB Wendell Smallwood is a healthy scratch.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Panthers after a limited week of practice. Insider J.P. Finlay hears that Thompson is expected to play. He figures to replace Wendell Smallwood as Washington’s pass-catching back and will continue to put a cap on RB Derrius Guice’s receiving upside.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (toe) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He finished 3rd among Washington RBs in snaps last week and is a weak fantasy option. RB Chris Thompson (toe) is inactive, giving Wendell Smallwood another game in a passing-down role.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Washington is "not optimistic" that RB Chris Thompson will be able to play today against the Lions. Thompson is questionable with the toe injury that cost him the past 4 games and continued to limit his practice time this week. Schefter reports that the team will test him out in pregame warm-ups before a final decision. Thompson's continued absence would leave snaps and touches for Derrius Guice and Wendell Smallwood.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (toe) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. Peterson shouldn’t be in your fantasy plans after finishing 3rd among Washington RBs in snaps last week, but his absence would be a big boost for Derrius Guice. RB Chris Thompson (toe) is also listed as questionable but is tentatively expected to play. He figures to take over for Wendell Smallwood as the pass-catching back.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) put in a limited practice on Wednesday -- his 1st since going down back in Week 6. We'll see if he's able to return for Sunday's game against the Lions. Thompson would figure to replace Wendell Smallwood as Washington's primary passing-down back and put a dent in Derrius Guice's stock.
