Thompson will start in Xavier Woods' (ankle) place at free safety in Sunday's game against Miami, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Thompson has yet to play a defensive snap this season, as he was inactive for the season opener and only saw 11 snaps on special teams in last Sunday's victory over Washington. The last time the 25-year-old saw a starting role was in 2017 with the Giants, when he logged 1,065 defensive snaps, 75 total tackles, six pass breakups and an interception over 16 games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Thompson will start alongside Landon Collins as the team's free safety. While Collins is the star of the unit, Thompson put up serviceable numbers last year with 75 total tackles, six passes defensed and one interception. However, he struggled in run support and was running with the second-team defense in offseason workouts, behind Andrew Adams.
Thompson is likely to start at free safety opposite superstar strong safety Landon Collins. It's hard to see both players racking up huge IDP totals, so Thompson's upside is likely modest.
This year's third-round pick, Thompson is the early favorite to start at free safety. There's some IDP upside here should he keep the job and see a heavy snap count.
