Rams RB Darrell Henderson injured his thumb in Monday's practice. Both NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter report that it's a minor sprain. Schefter adds that Henderson is expected to be ready for Week 1. It's still not an ideal development for a guy who has had trouble staying healthy -- and is now being counted on in an expanded role. We'll keep you updated on Henderson's status. There's no clear-cut handcuff to Henderson right now after RB Jake Funk started over RB Xavier Jones in the 2nd preseason game. The Rams could still add to the backfield before the start of the season.

Rams HC Sean McVay talked up RB Xavier Jones on Tuesday, saying he's “going to carve out a role for himself” and is someone the Rams are “expecting to count on throughout the season.” We know RB Darrell Henderson won't be a true workhorse, so there's room for some action behind him. It sounds like Jones is the favorite for the #2 spot on the depth chart, as of now. He's still unlikely to be a standalone fantasy option. But he's at least shaping up as the Henderson handcuff.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson is "looking healthy and explosive" early in training camp, according to The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue. It's notable after Henderson was hobbled by an undisclosed injury this spring. Durability has been a problem for Henderson through 2 NFL seasons, which HC Sean McVay pointed out recently. Henderson is set to take on his biggest workload as a pro this year with RB Cam Akers out.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Monday that RB Darrell Henderson won’t play in any preseason games. Per a tweet from beat writer Cameron DaSilva, McVay said it’s never been an ability question for Henderson; it’s about availability and staying healthy. Indeed. Through 2 pro seasons, Henderson’s sustained a pair of ankle sprains and a hamstring strain. So the team is wise to save its new lead back for the games that count. Barring a legit backfield addition, Henderson projects as a top-20 RB across formats.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Rams RB Cam Akers suffered a torn Achilles' tendon while training. That should obviously mean the end of his season, less than 2 months ahead of the opener. It clears a path for Darrell Henderson to lead a backfield that let Malcolm Brown walk in free agency. Behind Henderson on the current depth chart sit Xavier Jones, Raymond Calais and rookies Jake Funk and Otis Anderson. We'd bet on L.A. adding to that group via a trade or the pool of cut players as teams whittle their rosters this summer. Regardless of upcoming moves, Henderson should be in for a large workload and could remain a nice temporary value in best-ball drafts as fantasy football players digest the news and reset his ADP.

Rams RBs Cam Akers (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Cardinals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but it sounds like he’ll be a game-time decision for this win-and-in game for the Rams. RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) is out, so it’ll be RB Malcolm Brown in a workhorse role if Akers can’t go.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) has been placed on IR. So he's out for Week 17 and would also miss the Rams' first 2 playoff games. RB Cam Akers seems unlikely to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend due to his high-ankle sprain, so it'll be RB Malcolm Brown in a workhorse role.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in yesterday's loss to the Seahawks and is considered unlikely to play vs. the Cardinals on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB Cam Akers suffered the same injury in Week 15 and isn't a good bet to be available this weekend. Look for RB Malcolm Brown to play something close to an every-down role vs. Arizona.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson injured his left ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. We'll update his status when we know more. With RB Cam Akers inactive with his own ankle injury, the Rams are down to RB Malcolm Brown.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (quad) isn’t listed on the final Week 10 injury report. He graduated from no practice, to a limited practice to a full workout from Wednesday to Friday. Henderson figures to resume lead ball-carrying duties vs. the Seahawks this weekend.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (quad) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. HC Sean McVay said he expects Henderson to play vs. Seattle this weekend. We'll see what he does tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Sean McVay said last week that Henderson would be ready to play coming off the bye, but he's obviously still not at 100%. We'll see what he's able to do the next 2 days. Henderson's absence vs. Seattle on Sunday would leave the Rams with RBs Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown.

Rams HC Sean McVay expects RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) to be available when the team comes out of its Week 9 bye. Henderson exited in the 1st half of the loss to Miami, finally allowing rookie RB Cam Akers to get some run. We'll see what this backfield looks like when it gets back to action vs. the Seahawks in Week 10.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson suffered a thigh injury in Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is questionable to return. Malcolm Brown and Cam Akers have been splitting backfield duties in Henderson's absence.
