The Titans waived Thompson (undisclosed) with an injury designation Monday, Nick Suss of the Tennessean reports.
Thompson spent much of training camp on the active/non-football illness list, but it remains to be seen if his current issue is related to what held him out then. The 24-year-old contributed on special teams in six games with Tennessee last season.
Thompson was activated from the non-football illness list Monday, John Glennon of SI.com reports.
Thompson will now be able to practice with the team and get to work on earning a spot on the final 53-man roster. The 24-year-old was able to make six appearances with the Titans last season, seeing all of his work on special teams.
Thompson (illness) will begin training camp on the Titans' active/NFI list, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
While it isn't clear what sort of illness Thompson is dealing with, he will be eligible to practice and play in the preseason once healthy. Thompson played all 83 snaps on special teams last year and recorded four tackles in six games.
Thompson (concussion) does not carry an injury designation heading into Saturday's game against the Jaguars, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
