Five things to watch for in the Washington Redskins final preseason game

Chris Thompson: The battle for running back is a tight one. Alfred Morris and Roy Helu Jr seem to be locks (Morris for sure). Chris Thompson was assumed to be a lock as the third down back before camp started, but injuries that have caused him to miss the last two preseason games put his status on this team in jeopardy. He’ll be playing on Thursday night, and it’ll be his opportunity...

Redskins RB Chris Thompson is ’50-50′ for Ravens

But he hasn’t been able to compete as of late, nursing an ankle injury that has kept him out of practice since Aug. 10.

Redskins surprise cuts #1: You say Helu, I say Goodbye

This story contributed by Scott Hirsch.
