Washington running back Chris Thompson had to be carted off the field Sunday in the team's game against the New Orleans Saints with his right leg in an air cast, according to Kimberly A. Martin of the Washington Post and Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Thompson has been Washington's most dynamic offensive playmaker this season, coming into Sunday's game with 38 receptions for 494 yards and three touchdowns along with 60 rushes for another 277 yards and two scores.

Coming into the season, Thompson received a limited number of touches over his first four seasons. One thing he's provided is versatility, working on both special teams and as a receiver out of the backfield in addition to his work in the ground game.
