by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chris Thompson has 'emerged' at Redskins camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/29/2014) Redskins second-year running back Chris Thompson has "emerged" at training camp so far according to ESPN. A year removed from a torn ACL suffered in college, Thompson looks faster and more comfortable, has caught the ball well and has even done some good work in pass protection drills. Durability is an issue for him but if he stays upright he should make the team and could contend for a little playing time. 

Chris Thompson to be used like Darren Sproles?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Redskins running back Chris Thompson could have a bigger role than previously thought. Quarterback Robert Griffin III told ESPN.com that "we want him to be Darren Sproles. ... I love the guy."

Roy Helu not locked into third-down job?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/2014) Roy Helu has held down the Redskins' third-down role among running backs for the past couple of seasons, but it doesn't mean he's a cinch to continue to do so. The team has Chris Thompson and Lache Seastrunk on the roster to compete with him, plus Helu has never shown excellent traits of a make-you-miss type of back. 

The Washington Post surmises that experience should keep Helu ahead of the other candidates for the job, but that any strong work this summer by Thompson or Seastrunk could change that. 


Jay Gruden high on Chris Thompson's ability


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said running back Chris Thompson was “one of the most exciting backs” when he was at Florida State, reports ESPN.com. 

“He’s a guy who has to stay healthy and do his best to get on the field so we can see what he can do,” Gruden said. “Interesting guy. He’s very, very exciting when he gets the ball in his hands, but it’s hard to get the ball in his hands when he’s not out there.”

Thompson tore his labrum last season, his ACL in 2012.

Redskins running back depth chart starting to take shape


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said Roy Helu has secured the backup running back job to starter Alfred Morris. He added the remaining spots are "up for grabs" between Keiland Williams, Evan Royster and Chris Thompson.

"The only thing that’s been settled is Alf and Helu," Shanahan said Tuesday, per The Washington Post. "Everything else is up for grabs. We’ve got a good problem to have because I think there’s a bunch of guys there that can play in this league and that can help us. They’re gonna make us have to make a tough decision next week. And really, every play is gonna count for them."


Backup backs help Redskins bury Bills


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2013) Keiland Williams and Chris Thompson are buried deep on the depth chart in the Redskins' backfield behind stud back Alfred Morris and dangerous Roy Helu. But when given the opportunity on Saturday against Buffalo, they displayed some pretty mean talent.

Williams rushed for 52 yards on just 8 carries and showed some burst with a 23-yard run around left end in the middle of the fourth quarter. He also scored on a 1-yard run. Thompson proved steady with 44 yards on 15 carries. He displayed plenty of speed and quickness with a 31-yard punt return.

Neither will usurp Morris as the featured back and Helu did nothing to hurt his standing as the backup with a performance in which he rushed for 70 yards on just 13 carries. But Williams and Thompson certainly raised their stock on Saturday.
