Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jets. RB Derrius Guice is set to return from his knee injury and will form a committee backfield alongside Adrian Peterson. It’s a situation to try to avoid vs. a surprisingly stout Jets run defense.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. Adrian Peterson will continue to serve as Washington’s workhorse and should get as much as he can handle with Dwayne Haskins under center.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Vikings. He said earlier this week that he's dealing with a minor high-ankle sprain and only got in a limited practice on Wednesday. Peterson was already in a bad spot as a big road underdog against a tough Vikings defense. The ankle only adds more downside. Wendell Smallwood figures to operate as Washington's lead back vs. Minnesota if Peterson sits. RB Chris Thompson (toe) is out.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) didn’t practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Reportedly dealing with turf toe, Thompson might be looking at a multi-game absence. Wendell Smallwood figures to slide in as Washington’s #2 RB but isn’t a fantasy option.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson has been diagnosed with turf toe, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport describes the injury as "minor" -- but we heard the same about Packers WR Davante Adams, who's already missed 2 weeks. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on Thompson in Week 7 fantasy lineups. His absence will leave Wendell Smallwood as the #2 RB behind Adrian Peterson.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson suffered a foot injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game in Miami and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Redskins RB Derrius Guice indeed underwent surgery on Thursday and is out "indefinitely," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We should get a more concrete timetable for Guice's return over the next few days. He's worth stashing if you have an IR spot or a deep bench. But he's also cuttable if you're desperate for immediate help. Adrian Peterson takes over as Washington's lead back, with Chris Thompson continuing to dominate passing-down work.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) isn't listed on the final injury report after putting in a full week of practice. He'll return for Monday night's game against the Eagles. Thompson has averaged 5.2 carries and 6.8 targets across 5 appearances this season. He's a consideration in PPR leagues but comes with plenty of risk in his 1st action since October.

Washington HC Jay Gruden said Friday he's "very optimistic" RB Chris Thompson will play Monday night against the Eagles, according to ESPN's John Keim. The official game-status report will come out later this afternoon, but we'd expect something better than questionable for Thompson after he put in full practices Thursday and Friday. Thompson missed the past 4 games and 6 of the past 7 with rib injuries. He'll be a fringe option against a Philly D likely to miss MLB Jordan Hicks for the 2nd straight game.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Kapri Bibbs will continue to serve as the change-of-pace back but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. He still has no timetable for return. Kapri Bibbs will continue to operate as Washington's change-of-pace back but isn't much of a fantasy option. He's totaled 7 carries and 8 targets in the past 3 games without Thompson.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) remained sidelined on Wednesday. We'll see if he's able to get out there on Thursday, but fantasy owners shouldn't be planning on having him for this weekend's game against the Bucs.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) is out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. It's a missed opportunity vs. the league's worst defense in RB coverage. RB Kapri Bibbs will step in as Washington's #2 RB and is a deep-league PPR option in this matchup. He posted a 4-43-1 line on 5 targets back in Week 7.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His rib injury is reportedly an issue of pain tolerance, so it's possible he plays against the Falcons this weekend without practicing. But even then, he'd be a risky fantasy starter.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson suffered another rib injury in Sunday's win over the Giants, according to ESPN's John Keim. This one is to the opposite side that he hurt earlier this season. "Now about pain tolerance," Keim adds. We'll keep an eye on Thompson this week. He has an intriguing matchup on Sunday vs. a Falcons team that bleeds receptions to RBs.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, ribs) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He put in a full practice on Friday, so we’re expecting him to be ready for his usual role in this one.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is expected to play against the Giants today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Thompson missed the last 2 games but got in a full practice on Friday. There's a bit more risk here than usual, but he's fine to get into PPR lineups.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He put in a full practice on Friday, so he should be able to give it a go. Thompson comes with elevated risk with the knee and rib issues but packs plenty of PPR upside.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He played through these injuries last week, carrying 17 times. Expect a similar workload today. Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee), meanwhile, is inactive. That leaves Kapri Bibbs as Washington’s #2 RB.
