Chris Thompson

Sports Injury Predictor

Chris Thompson Player Overview

Thompson's injury history almost makes you wonder why he's still playing football. A fractured right fibula cost him the final 6 games of 2017. Two years prior, a torn shoulder labrum and back bruise combined to claim 3 games. He finished his rookie season on IR with the same injury, and has also dealt with ankle, back and toe issues in the pros. Thompson's college career featured a 2011 vertebral fracture and then a left ACL tear the following season. Before his 2017 injury, however, the 27-year-old looked as explosive as he ever has in the pros.
