Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee) remains more than a month away from receiving full clearance to return to action. The fifth-round pick from Florida State is expected to contend for a spot behind RB Alfred Morris, and the training staff feels he will be ready to participate fully when the team opens training camp July 25.
Fantasy Tip: Morris had plenty of question marks last year, and he came out of nowhere last season to seize the No. 1 job. Thompson might not necessarily do that, but head coach Mike Shanahan has a knack for cultivating quality running backs with low draft picks, so Thompson could be one to watch. Take a wait-and-see approach with Thompson, who could be worth a late-round flier on draft day if he has a strong training camp and preseason.
