Chris Thompson: Cut by Texans

Thompson was released by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Thompson had been absent for over a week with a concussion, but he was able to return to practice recently. However, it looks like Thompson was not in the Texans' future plans and he'll now look to latch onto another team with just a couple weeks to go before the start of the season.

Chris Thompson: Back at practice following concussion absence

Thompson (concussion) has returned to practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Thompson's concussion kept him out of competition for about a month so he'll have some ground to make up in the receiver position battles department. It's unclear what the Texans' plans are for Thompson down the road, but it seems as if his preseason showing could heavily sway the organization's feel about him in the short term.

Chris Thompson: Passes through concussion protocol

Thompson has cleared concussion protocol, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Thompson has been sidelined for a pair of weeks while recovering from the issue and appears to be ready to return after a pair of weeks on the sidelines. The second-year wideout made five grabs and contributed as a returner, though it's unclear if he's expected to repeat in that role this season.

Chris Thompson: Dealing with concussion

Thompson has been sidelined the last week due to a concussion, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Thompson, an undrafted free agent a year ago out of the University of Florida, appeared in 13 for the Texans in 2017, seeing time mostly on special teams as a gunner and returner. The news of his concussion brings more clarity to Houston's decision to sign wide receiver / kick returner Quan Bray on Sunday. He's making a sound recovery from the concussion and is nearly done with the symptoms.
