The Dolphins have signed RB Duke Johnson to their practice squad. The 28-year-old spent a couple of weeks on Jacksonville's practice squad in September but has otherwise been unemployed since being released by the Texans in February. There's opportunity in after RB Malcolm Brown was placed on IR, but Johnson is only worth adding in the deepest of fantasy leagues right now. We'll see if he gets promoted to the active roster.

Dolphins RB Malcolm Brown will be placed on IR with a quad injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, HC Brian Flores said Monday. Brown will be out at least the next 3 weeks vs. the Bills, Texans and Ravens. He's played 28% of Miami's offensive snaps and averaged 4.7 carries and .7 targets per game, so his absence leaves behind a little extra work for RBs Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed.

The Dolphins released rookie RB Gerrid Doaks. For now, Miami will roll with Myles Gaskin, Malcom Brown and Salvon Ahmed in the backfield. Only Gaskin is ranked as a top-50 option in our 2021 RB rankings.

Dolphins RB Malcolm Brown started Saturday's preseason opener vs. the Bears. Per Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Brown out-snapped RB Myles Gaskin 16 to 7 with the 1st-team offense. Gaskin then played into the 2nd quarter with Miami's backups. "You saw all 3 backs played, all 3 of them got carries," HC Brian Flores said after the game, referring to Brown, Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. "Pick one out and put them in, basically. We like all 3 guys. They all do good things. And I think we saw that today. And [we'll] just keep working all 3 guys." That sure sounds like this will be an ugly committee backfield. We'll get another look at the rotation in Miami's 2nd preseason game. But, for now, we've moved Gaskin well down the RB rankings and Brown up.

The Dolphins are signing RB Malcolm Brown, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown set career highs last year in carries (101), rushing yards (419) and all receiving categories (33 targets, 23 catches, 162 yards). His departure leaves Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson more room in the Rams backfield for now. Miami has been commonly linked to the top incoming rookie RBs in mock drafts. We'll be curious to see how else they address a backfield that was dominated by Myles Gaskin in 2020.

Rams RBs Cam Akers (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He got in just 1 limited practice this week after suffering a high-ankle sprain 14 days ago. Akers figures to be operating at far less than 100% today and is a risky fantasy play. His presence, though, also makes RB Malcolm Brown a shaky option.

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) 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.

Rams RB Cam Akers (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants after missing practice all week. The red-hot Darrell Henderson figures to serve as Los Angeles' lead back in that one, with Malcolm Brown as the #2 back.

Rams RB Cam Akers (rib) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. RB Malcolm Brown (pinky) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Brown and Darrell Henderson will split backfield duties this weekend, with Henderson the preferred fantasy play after his strong Week 2.

Rams RBs Cam Akers (ribs) and Malcolm Brown (finger) missed Wednesday's practice. Brown is expected to be available for this weekend's game in Buffalo, but Akers' status is up in the air. We'll check back on their practice participation tomorrow.
