The Facts: Thompson got more involved during team periods today, working mostly as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. HC Jay Gruden said in his morning press conference that he anticipates Thompson being “full-go” sooner than later, and Thompson seemed to confirm that on the field.
Diehards Line: The running back played in what he estimated 12 snaps, and said after practice that he’s still a little wary of cutting on his right leg while running routes, a mental hurdle he’ll eventually have to jump. Though he didn’t want to test it, he made a nice grab on a high screen pass from Kevin Hogan in which he batted the ball to himself and continued to still make the play work. It’s a good sign that he keeps taking steps forward and returns to the form before being injured last November. ... We'll continue watching his progress.
