Thompson (ribs) was a non-participant in Tuesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Thompson was always an uphill battle to gain an active status on a short week, and his absences from practice Tuesday supports the notion that the running back will more than likely be sidelined Thanksgiving Day in Dallas for the sixth time in seven games. A final call on Thompson's gameday status will be made following Wednesday's practice session, but the expectation is that Kapri Bibbs and Byron Marshall will shoulder most of the scatback's duties on passing downs.
Thompson (ribs) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report.
In advance of a third consecutive absence last week, Thompson was contained to working with the training staff on the side. He may still be a part of the rehab group, but until the Redskins log an actual practice this week, it's unclear where the veteran running back stands in his recovery. If Thompson doesn't make the requisite progress for Thursday's game in Dallas -- along with Samaje Perine (calf) -- Kapri Bibbs and Byron Marshall would gobble up whatever snaps are left behind by Adrian Peterson (shoulder).
Thompson (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Limited to side work with the training staff, Thompson is still in too much pain to play in a game. Kapri Bibbs will continue to fill in on passing downs, with Byron Marshall likely coming up from the practice squad to replace an injured Samaje Perine (hip) in the No. 3 running back role. Thompson may have a hard time avoiding another absence with the Cowboys hosting the Redskins on Thanksgiving.
Thompson (ribs) isn't practicing Friday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Thompson worked out on a side field Thursday but was listed as a non-participant. He seems to be headed for a third straight absence when the Redskins host the Texans on Sunday, though it's possible he'll be listed as questionable on the final injury report.
Thompson (ribs) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
According to John Keim of ESPN.com, Thompson was seen working out on the side Thursday, spurring hope that he'd elevate to a limited participant. Even if he had fit in some activity, it may note have played into the decision-making process for Sunday's game against the Texans. On Wednesday, coach Jay Gruden told Keim that Thompson is unlikely to play Week 11. If Thompson sits out for the fifth time in six contests, Kapri Bibbs would serve as the primary change-of-pace option behind Adrian Peterson.
