Rams RBs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson are dealing with “soft tissue” injuries, per HC Sean McVay. Neither guy will practice until they can be “full speed” in team drills, per reporter Sarah Barshop. No timeline was given by McVay. We’ll track this situation, but it’s at least a bit worrisome considering the injury histories on both guys. We’ll let you know when they’re back in action.

Rams HC Sean McVay spoke about QB Matthew Stafford's right elbow issue on Thursday. McVay called it "a tricky deal," "abnormal for a QB” and "things that MLB pitchers deal with," per The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue. McVay added that the team explored different treatment options to alleviate the pain this offseason and that the team wasn't caught off guard by the situation when camp opened. “Could he (push through)? Yes. Is that the best thing? We didn’t think so," McVay said. Here's Rodrigue's take after listening to McVay: "While arm pain is never NOT a concern my sense is after some treatment early spring they decided to go with this onload/deload plan which has been on schedule per McVay." Until we hear that the pain in Stafford's elbow is gone -- or at least know exactly what he's dealing with -- he'll carry some elevated risk in fantasy drafts. His situation, of course, also impacts Cooper Kupp, Allen Robinson and the rest of the Rams' skill-position guys.

Rams HC Sean McVay talked up RBs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson over the weekend. “I look at it as we’ve got two starting backs,” McVay said. “Those guys are great complements (to) one another, but I see them as both starting-caliber players. We need to get them involved. They need to be on the field. I think it’s healthy for them to be able to supplement one another.” This, of course, doesn't tell us anything about the Rams' specific plans for splitting the backfield work between Akers and Henderson. But The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue says Akers and Henderson have been "splitting first-team snaps pretty evenly so far" in training camp. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation through the rest of camp and preseason action. Akers is 7 rounds ahead of Henderson in recent ADP.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson is currently sidelined with what HC Sean McVay called a "soft-tissue injury." We don't have any details on the ailment or severity. We're not adjusting Henderson's projections for now but will keep an eye on him when training camp opens next month. Henderson has missed 7 games through 3 NFL seasons with ankle, rib, thigh and knee injuries.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (knee) is active for the Super Bowl. It'll be his first action since Week 16. We're expecting Henderson to be 3rd in line for touches behind Cam Akers and Sony Michel.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (knee) has been activated from IR. That puts him on track to play in Sunday's Super Bowl. Henderson has been out since Week 16, so we're not expecting him to play a major role vs. the Bengals. But HC Sean McVay mentioned a "3-back rotation, based on how the game unfolds" when asked about the backfield on Wednesday.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (knee) got 1st-team reps in Wednesday's practice, HC Sean McVay said afterward. "I think Darrell's going to go," McVay added. "So you'll have Cam [Akers], Darrell and Sony [Michel]. You'll be able to see a good, 3-back rotation, based on how the game unfolds." It sounds like Henderson is set to play a real role in the Super Bowl, despite missing the past month and a half with that sprained MCL.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Monday that RB Darrell Henderson (knee) is "looking optimistic" for the Super Bowl. Henderson suffered an MCL sprain in Week 16 but was designated to return a couple of weeks ago. We don't expect him to play a big role vs. the Bengals on Sunday, but Henderson could steal a few carries from RB Cam Akers.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (knee) has been designated to return from IR. He won't play vs. the Bucs on Sunday but has a chance to suit up if Los Angeles advances to the NFC Championship. Henderson would likely return as the Rams' #3 RB behind Cam Akers and Sony Michel.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson will be placed on IR with an MCL sprain suffered in Sunday's win over the Vikings, HC Sean McVay said. Henderson is expected to miss 3-5 weeks, which means he could be out unless the Rams reach the Super Bowl. We'll keep tabs on his recovery.

The Rams believe RB Darrell Henderson suffered a knee sprain in today's win over the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The hope is it’s minor, but he’ll have an MRI on Monday that will tell the full story," Rapoport adds. So we should learn more tomorrow. Henderson, though, is off the fantasy radar now that Sony Michel has taken over as the Rams' feature back.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Vikings with a knee injury. That happened on his 1st carry of the game in the 4th quarter. We'll look for an update on Henderson's injury, but this is clearly Sony Michel's backfield right now.

The Rams "plan" to have RB Cam Akers (Achilles) back for the playoffs, GM Les Snead told NFL.com. It'd cap a remarkable recovery from Akers' mid-July Achilles tear. We'd be surprised if Akers had a big role in the playoffs -- but he'd turn Los Angeles' backfield into a 3-man committee alongside Sony Michel and Darrell Henderson.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson has been activated from the COVID list. Assuming he's over the thigh issue that cost him Week 13, he should play vs. the Seahawks on Tuesday night. It's unclear exactly how touches will be divvied between Henderson and RB Sony Michel. Consider both guys risk/reward fantasy plays against Seattle's 31st-ranked RB defense.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson remains on the COVID list as of Saturday morning. He has some extra time to get cleared after his game vs. the Seahawks was moved to Tuesday. We’ll let you know via Shark Bites when he’s cleared, but Henderson will be tough to wait on if he’s not cleared before Sunday’s games kick off. His status also impacts RB Sony Michel’s fantasy value, of course.

The Rams have placed RB Darrell Henderson on the COVID list. That will knock the RB out for Monday night's game against the Cardinals, leaving Sony Michel to lead the backfield for the 2nd straight week. Michel delivered a big rushing performance against Jacksonville last week and becomes a strong fantasy play for the week.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson missed Saturday's practice with an illness. He'd been limited the previous 2 days with the thigh injury that kept him sidelined in last week's win over the Jaguars. We'll see how Henderson is listed on the final injury report later today.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) remained limited in Friday's practice. We'll see what he does tomorrow and then how he's listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. He was limited last Friday before being active but not playing a snap in the Jaguars game. Henderson's availability and role in Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals remains uncertain. We'll look for clues over the next few days

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. Fox’s Jay Glazer reported earlier that Henderson would be "available" but not the "feature back." We’ll see exactly how much he ends up playing, but we’re projecting RB Sony Michel to lead the backfield in touches.
