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 WR Van Jefferson (shoulder) is active for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Cardinals. He was listed as questionable after going from full participation in Thursday's practice to limited on Friday and Saturday. Jefferson carries some extra risk in fantasy lineups tonight.

Rams WR Van Jefferson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday night's Wild Card game vs. the Cardinals. He went from full participation in Thursday's practice to limited on Friday and Saturday. We're expecting Jefferson to suit up, but he'd be a risky fantasy bet at less than 100%.

The Rams have ruled S Taylor Rapp out for Monday night's game against the Cardinals. Rapp is dealing with a concussion he suffered last Sunday. His absence leaves L.A. without its 2 starting safeties, as Jordan Fuller had previously been deemed out for the season with an ankle injury. The Rams signed veteran S Eric Weddle early in the week. Stu Jackson of the team website reports that coaches are "looking at a range of possible snaps for him." Elsewhere on the defense, HC Sean McVay said there's a "good chance" LB Troy Reeder will wear the green dot and call the defensive plays, which points to full playing time for Reeder.

Rams WR Van Jefferson (shoulder) went from a full practice on Thursday to limited on Friday. He either suffered a setback or just took some reps off. We'll learn more when the Rams release their final injury report on Saturday afternoon.

Rams RB Cam Akers is expected to have a "limited role" vs. the 49ers today in his 1st game since tearing his Achilles this summer, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that Akers will have "an increased role" in the playoffs. We'll see how Akers looks today and what that means for his postseason volume. But he's not a viable Week 18 fantasy option. RB Sony Michel remains a strong play.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Wednesday that he's looking forward to seeing RB Cam Akers (Achilles) make his season debut vs. the 49ers this weekend. McVay said early last week that Akers was on track to play vs. the Ravens, so take this with a grain of salt. We'll see if Akers ends up active on Sunday, but we don't expect him to see more than a handful of touches if he is.

Rams S Taylor Rapp (shoulder), DL Greg Gaines (hand) and edge Leonard Floyd (ankle) are active for today's game against the Ravens.

Rams DL Greg Gaines (hand) and S Taylor Rapp (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. We'll check their statuses Sunday morning.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Friday that RB Cam Akers (Achilles) is not likely to play vs. the Ravens this weekend. Akers wasn't a realistic fantasy option this week anyway, but his absence just makes RB Sony Michel an even bigger lock to dominate backfield work. Jake Funk will be Los Angeles' #2 RB.

Rams HC Sean McVay said RB Cam Akers (Achilles) could play vs. the Ravens this weekend. Akers was just designated to return to practice last week after his mid-July Achilles tear. The Rams were originally planning to get Akers back for the playoffs, but they have a need at the position with RB Darrell Henderson headed to IR. We'll see if Akers ends up active on Sunday, but we wouldn't expect him to see more than a few touches. Sony Michel should continue to dominate backfield work.

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.

Rams LB Ernest Jones left Sunday's win over the Vikings with a left ankle injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team believes he suffered a high-ankle sprain. The early word is that he's "week to week," which means he'll almost certainly miss at least this Sunday's game at Baltimore. With Jones leaving early, Troy Reeder led Rams LBs in playing time at 86%. He'll be a solid-to-good option for IDP lineups in Week 17.

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.

Rams DL Greg Gaines (ankle) is active for today's game against the Vikings.

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.

The Rams have activated RB Cam Akers from IR. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, however, that the team did so go help him receive pension credit for the season. A player apparently needs to be on the active roster for at least 3 games. Schefter adds that Akers is not expected to play in the regular season but could "contribute this post-season." Any level of involvement would be impressive for Akers after he suffered an Achilles' tendon tear in July. We wouldn't bet on him for significant fantasy impact even in NFL playoffs leagues, though.

Rams DL Greg Gaines is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings with an ankle injury. He put in limited practices Wednesday and Friday, with a missed practice in between. We'll see about Gaines' status Sunday morning.

The Rams on Friday activated S Jordan Fuller from the COVID list, clearing him to play against the Vikings on Sunday.
