Top Corey Thompson News

  • Corey Thompson: Jettisoned by Buffalo

    Thompson was let go Friday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

    Thompson hung on to a depth roster spot for the past two seasons with the Bills, but with Tyler Matakevich being added in free agency and Andre Smith being signed as a late addition this week, Thompson's odds of making the team became quite a bit longer, and that hope ultimately got squashed Friday. He remains a possibility for the Bills' practice squad.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Misses Tuesday's practice

    Thompson missed Tuesday's practice due to knee soreness, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Absent from injury report

    Thompson (ankle) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

    Thompson hasn't suited up for regular-season action since Week 3 due to a lingering ankle issue, but he appears on track to retake the field Sunday versus Washington. The 25-year-old stands to contribute on special teams and provide depth at the linebacker position when cleared to play.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Sitting out Week 8

    Thompson (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

    Thompson was upgraded this week to a game-time decision after not practicing for nearly a month. It seems as though the 25-year-old is knocking on the door for a return, but he wasn't deemed healthy enough for a Week 8 return. In his stead, look for Julian Stanford and Maurice Alexander to see the bulk of special teams reps while providing depth at linebacker.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Game time-call against Eagles

    Thompson (ankle) will be a game-time call for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

    After not practicing for nearly a month, Thompson got back onto the field in a limited capacity this week. The team will likely want to test how the 25-year-old's ankle responds during pregame warmups before deciding whether to deploy him. Thompson usually sticks to a special-teams role, but he could have an uptick in usage if Matt Milano (hamstring) sits out.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Still unable to practice

    Thompson, who hasn't played since undergoing ankle surgery in late September, was limited during Wednesday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    The special teams stud is inching his way back to action, perhaps even quicker than expected given the severity of the injury. However, given that Thompson is a depth player, the Bills likely will make sure he's fit enough to make it through a full game healthy before making him active for game day.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Won't play in Week 7

    Thompson (ankle) is officially Inactive for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins.

    Thompson only practiced on a limited basis this week after having ankle surgery in late September. The linebacker is still looking for his first defensive snap of the season, so his absence likely will be only felt on special teams. Look for Julian Stanford and Maurice Alexander to be the primary beneficiaries for an increased snap count with both Thompson and Matt Milano (hamstring) sidelined.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Ankle surgery needed

    Thompson has undergone ankle surgery, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    The backup linebacker doesn't have a snap on defense in 2019, but he's a key special teamer and his absence will be felt on those units. Coach Sean McDermott does not believe Thompson's injury will be season-ending, though we'll have to see what the Bills end up doing roster wise.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Sidelined by groin injury

    Thompson missed practice Sunday due to a groin injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

  • Bills' Corey Thompson: Working on roster spot

    Thompson received work with the first unit Sunday, while veteran teammate Lorenzo Alexander received a rest day, John Murphy of the Bills' official site reports.

    Thompson is a second-year undrafted free agent out of LSU who saw six games' worth of action with the Bills last season, more of it coming from special teams. However, he showed what he could do in his lone start -- a big nine-tackle, one forced-fumble game against the Patriots in Week 16. Thompson's ability to back up Alexander and contribute on special teams should land him a roster spot. If injuries should strike, the starting linebackers on Sean McDermott teams tend to accrue noteworthy stats.
