The dual-threat back told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Monday he'll avoid the PUP list and begin practicing this week. The Redskins report to training camp Wednesday.
"I'm feeling pretty good right now, I will start practicing with the guys from day one but just taking it slowly..." Thompson said. "The focus is to really be ready by that first regular season game."
Thompson was enjoying a breakout season in 2017 before breaking his leg in Week 11. In 10 games, he compiled 510 receiving yards on 39 receptions -- 13.1 yards per catch average -- to go along with 294 rushing yards on 64 totes, with six total touchdowns.
