The Washington Redskins have selected running back Chris Thompson of Florida State in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

The Redskins chose Thompson with the 154th overall pick Saturday.

Thompson was injured for much of his college career. He broke two vertebrae during the 2011 season and tore the ACL in his left knee last year.

He's still rehabbing the knee, but he says doctors tell him he should be ready in time for training camp.

Thompson is 5-foot-7 and weighs 192 pounds.

He ran for 1,735 yards over four years with the Seminoles, including 687 in eight games last year.
