Chris Thompson feels the pain Ryan Ramczyk Jersey Stitched , not the nerves.Eleven months ago, the running back was in the middle of a career season with the Washington Redskins before he broke his right fibula on a freak play at the Superdome against the New Orleans Saints. He returns to the site of that injury Monday night looking like his old self but not quite feeling back to normal."As far as my speed and my route-running, all of that, yes," Thompson said Thursday. "As far as feeling pain-free, no. That's the only negative that I have right now."It's a negative Thompson is certainly overcoming as the almost-perfect complementary backfield piece to Adrian Peterson. His 20 catches are the most on the team, and coupled with his 5.5 yards a carry average and pass protection skills Youth Marcus Williams Jersey , he is one of the most valuable pieces of the offense.Just three games with Thompson have made a believer out of quarterback Alex Smith."It's easy to label those guys as kind of scat backs, specialist-type backs, but I don't think Chris is limited in that way," Smith said. "He's a guy that can do everything and has a ton of tools."Thompson was the Redskins' do-everything player last season before the injury. He had 804 all-purpose yards and six touchdowns in nine-plus games before a Saints defender rolled up on him and caused the fracture.Coach Jay Gruden is proud of the 27-year-old's diligence in rehab and ability to hold himself back in training camp and preseason to get prepared for Week 1. Thompson is on the field and productive but has to fight through pain during the week at practice as he bounces back from games."It's recovery stuff," Thompson said. "It's just all part of the process. I'm able to play now and game days for some reason I really don't have much pain at all. It's kind of different during the week."Thompson has come back from severe knee, shoulder and back injuries in the past, so pain tolerance doesn't seem to be an issue. His team certainly can't tell he's bothered by anything right now because Thompson seems to be on top of his game."He's explosive and fast and physical and everything he was before the injury Marcus Williams Jersey Stitched , if not better," Gruden said. "He hasn't lost a step, in my opinion."Saints coach Sean Payton said Thompson is "certainly someone you have to pay attention to," and he's not alone in thinking that way. Green Bay doubled Thompson in coverage to limit his impact in Week 3, but Smith, Peterson and tight end Jordan Reed were able to do enough to put up 31 points on the Packers.Washington will likely have to keep up that pace against New Orleans, which has averaged over 34 points a game so far this season. The Redskins can count on Thompson to help that cause as he tries not to dwell on his injury when he's back at the Superdome."I'm just excited to get back Youth Alvin Kamara Jersey ," Thompson said. "I haven't had any nerves or even really thought much about me going back and the injury and the whole payback thing. I'm really not thinking about that. I know probably when the game comes around it'll be some nerves going maybe. But as of right now, it's just focus on just trying to win the game."NOTES: WR Josh Doctson did not practice Wednesday or Thursday because of a heel injury. Gruden said Doctson got kicked in the heel Monday and isn't sure if the 2016 first-round pick will be ready to face the Saints. ... CB Josh Norman (hamstring) expects to be ready to play Monday night.AP Sports Writer Brett Martel in New Orleans contributed. The Saints have some fun times ahead for 2019."Today’s a fun day around the NFL, as we’ll soon know the league schedule for the 2019 season. While we’ve known about the opponents for quite some time, the exact time and dates were unknown. Both small and big leaks have happened throughout the morning, but up until recently, nothing with the New Orleans Saints.That has changed.According to The Athletic’s Nick Underhill, we have three dates for the Saints to share. Per his report Alvin Kamara Jersey Stitched , the team will open the new season hosting the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, which is typically a double-header featuring an earlier start in the first game. In Week 2, the Saints will travel to play the Los Angeles Rams in a much anticipated rematch of last season’s controversial NFC Championship. Finally, the Saints and Falcons will meet again on Thanksgiving, but this time in Atlanta.The NFL will release the full schedule tonight, but each season we get more information available to us before getting to that point.
