It was announced after the game that Thompson's injury was a fractured fibula and that he would miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery.
The Washington Redskins had a pretty massive "oh dear god no" moment on Sunday afternoon against the Saints, almost losing both Kirk Cousins and Chris Thompson on the same play while holding a lead in New Orleans.
Wil Lutz kicked a 28-yard field in overtime to give New Orleans a 34-31 win over Washington for the Saints' eighth straight win, matching their longest winning streak since the 2011 season. An all-out blitz almost sacked quarterback Kirk Cousins, but he let it fly to wide receiver Ryan Grant, who was so open near the Saints' goal line he looked like he was deep for a punt.
Unfortunately for Thompson though, he will likely not play again this season, even if the Redskins make the playoffs, as his leg had to be fitted with an air cast before he was carted to the locker room. After nine games, he had 60 carries for 277 yards and two touchdowns, as well as 38 receptions for 494 yards and three touchdowns.
