News: Thompson (knee) was not activated off the PUP list on Wednesday, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com reports.
Impact: Thompson, who tore his ACL during the 2015 regular season finale, had returned to practice in late November with hopes of eventually being activated, but as the deadline passed Wednesday it didn't happen. Pat Sims and DeShawn Williams will continue to provide depth behind Geno Atkins and Domata Peko at defensive tackle.

News: Thompson (knee) returned to practice Tuesday.
Impact: The defensive tackle was placed on the reserve/Phyiscally Unable to Perform list at the end of the preseason as he continued to rehab a torn ACL. Now cleared to practice, the Bengals will now have 21 days to decide if they want to activate Thompson to the 53-man roster. If he does return, expect him to serve in a reserve role behind starters Geno Atkins and Domata Peko.
