Though two days of training camp, Chris Thompson has managed to stand out in a crowded Redskins’ backfield.
He’s looked quick. He’s looked elusive. He’s looked decisive. In other words, the 2013 fifth round draft pick has looked precisely like the No. 3 running back that Jay Gruden is seeking for his offense.
Thompson figures he’s battling rookie Lache Seastrunk, a similar player in terms of shiftiness and breakaway speed, Evan Royster and Silas Redd for one, maybe two spots.
