The loss is a major one for Washington's offense, which was heavily reliant upon Thompson in both the running game (60 attempts, 277 yards, two touchdowns) and the passing game (team-leading 38 receptions for 494 yards, three touchdowns). Often when watching Kirk Cousins operate the Redskins' offense, the result of the play would be a pass to Thompson. Now, he'll be forced to look elsewhere.
Some of that was apparent in the second half Sunday. After Thompson's exit, Cousins completed 10 of 15 passes, spreading it among five different receivers in the process.
