Other roster moves from the Jaguars include:

The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.

Thompson, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of Washington back in 2013. He was unfortunately waived at the start of the 2014 season, but re-signed to their practice squad soon after.

Washington brought Thompson back on a second-round restricted tender in 2017 before signing him to a two-year extension at the start of the 2017 regular season. From there, he signed on with the Jaguars this May. 

In 2020, Thompson has appeared in six games for the Jaguars and rushed for 17 yards on six carries to go along with 16 receptions for 111 yards receiving and one touchdown.
