ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Washington RB Chris Thompson is expected to miss today's game against the Panthers. He's officially questionable because of rib and knee injuries. Washington also reportedly expects to be without WR Jamison Crowder (ankle). Factor in injuries for Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson, and the target ceiling for TE Jordan Reed -- in a positive matchup for TE scoring -- only rises higher. Adrian Peterson could see a bit more backfield receiving work with Thompson out. And Kapri Bibbs figures to be in the picture as well.
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.
