Chris Thompson and Kapri Bibbs, Washington Redskins at Carolina Panthers
It was going to be a tough week regardless of Thompson’s health status, which suddenly changed on the weekend. Limited in practice with a knee and rib injuries, Thompson is expected not to play against the Panthers. Looking at pass-catching backs against the Panthers, you’ll see that they’re averaging four receptions against them but only Saquon Barkley was able to accumulate yards against them (81) while other pass-catching backs like Tevin Coleman, Gio Bernard and even Zeke Elliott struggled to get anything in the pass game. Since Adrian Peterson is going to play through pain, Kapri Bibbs is going to handle the passing downs.
