Chris Thompson


After losing Richard Crawford to a knee injury and benching Chris Thompson for ineffectiveness, the Redskins turned to Josh Morgan five games ago to return punts.


Redskins running back Chris Thompson, who has been inactive the past four games while battling a shoulder injury, will be placed on injured reserve, Coach Mike Shanahan.


The Redskins are as healthy as they’ve been all season as they head to Minneapolis for Thursday night’s game against Adrian Peterson and the Vikings.


Josh Morgan returned a total of 14 punts in four seasons at Virginia Tech and none in his first five seasons as a pro. But that didn’t deter the Redskins.
