News: Thompson (knee) was placed on the Bengals' reserve/PUP list Tuesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Impact: Thompson suffered a torn ACL in Week 17 of 2015 and missed the entirety of the Bengals' offseason program and training camp. Given the timing of his injury, he wasn't expected to be ready for the start of the regular season anyway. He's first eligible to return to action Oct. 23 for an in-state matchup against the Browns.

News: Thompson was put on an injury list that would allow him to return after six weeks.
Impact: He's recovering from a knee injury at the end of last season.

News: The Bengals have placed Thompson (knee) on the PUP list to begin training camp, The Washington Post reports.
Impact: The move was to be expected, as Thompson had torn his ACL in the regular-season finale versus the Ravens. He figures to commence the regular season on the PUP list as well, which would subsequently sideline him for the Bengals' first six games.
