BALTIMORE – Chris Thompson will not play Saturday night in the Washington Redskins’ game against Baltimore, marking the second consecutive preseason game he’s missed after spraining his ankle in the preseason opener on Aug. 7.

Thompson, a second-year running back, did not dress despite working out under the supervision of an athletic trainer before the game. He played just seven snaps in the Redskins’ victory over New England before leaving with an injury, marking his first action since Sept. 29.

With Thompson out, the third-string snaps should again go to Evan Royster, who stepped in after Alfred Morris and Roy Helu left the game against Cleveland on Monday. Lache Seastrunk, a sixth-round draft pick who missed the last two days of practice following the death of his grandmother, was in uniform for warmups and is expected to play.

Inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton (high right ankle sprain) and cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring strain) also did not dress and were not expected to play on Saturday. Sharpton injured his ankle in the game against the Patriots, while Porter injured a hamstring in the second half of the game against the Browns.
