Fantasy Impact:

Thompson went down with an injury during Monday's loss to the Saints, and it now has been diagnosed as a fractured fibula that is expected to sideline him for the remainder of the season. This is a devastating blow for Carolina’s already-thin defense. The veteran was a team captain and one of the cornerstones of this unit, so now they'll have to reach down the depth chart to try to find someone who can replace his production.
