    News

    Thompson carried two times for three yards and caught five of eight targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Cowboys.

    Impact

    Although Adrian Peterson got the bulk of the early work, Thompson became a factor later in the game as the Redskins all but abandoned the run. He tied for the team lead in catches while finishing second in targets and receiving yardage. Thompson now has 12 catches for 116 yards receiving through two games, and although he's unlikely to be much of a factor as a runner, his skillset should be utilized often with his team expected to trail for much of the season.

    News

    Thompson has a new backfield mate (Adrian Peterson) after Derrius Guice underwent surgery on a torn meniscus, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    Impact

    Guice came out of Sunday's loss at Philadelphia with yet another knee injury that will force a lengthy absence. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Guice is "out indefinitely," which elevates Peterson to a familiar role. Behind Peterson, Thompson will serve his typical pass-catching role out of the backfield. In Week 1, it translated to seven receptions (on 10 targets) for 68 yards in addition to a trio of carries for 10 yards.

    News

    Thompson carried three times for 10 yards and caught seven of 10 targets for an additional 68 yards during Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Eagles.

    Impact

    Thompson wasn't involved much in the early going, but as the Eagles pulled ahead he became a large part of the attack and finished with the team lead in targets. It was more of the same from Thompson, who has managed to make a significant impact as a pass catcher throughout his career, when healthy. Washington is expected to trail often this season, including next Sunday's home matchup against the Cowboys, so he could be utilized quite often for as long as he's available.
