Agree. Maybe everything with the injury is on par for full recovery? Praying that is the case. But still can’t help feeling concerns over his progress.

None of that could have been a mystery when they recruited him, and this is June. So I suspect we will be all right.

But, let's hope that if he is not 100%, we don't play him when someone else close to his talents is 100%.

Wonder if that's the reason his passes had an odd trajectory during the spring game (kind of like a knuckleball)? Regardless, absolutely no reason to play him if he's not 100 %. He can always work his way onto the field later in the season if need be. I absolutely hate it when players have sub-par performances and the excuse is "well, they were playing hurt". That's why we should be coaching up 2nd/3d string players. If your 2nd string player at 100% isn't as good as your starter at 75% you've got serious roster problems.

I think it's why he played so sparingly in the spring game. Certainly it had to have some effect on how he could spin the ball. I really hope Purdy or Smothers is ready to go if Thompson is not. I agree that we need to play one of them vice a sub par Thompson.
