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 TE Tyler Higbee (knee) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. We've removed him from our Super Bowl projections and bumped up TE Kendall Blanton.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. The team is still holding out hope that he'll be able to play in Sunday's Super Bowl, but that's starting to look unlikely. TE Kendall Blanton stepped up to catch all 5 of his targets for 57 yards after Higbee exited the NFC Championship.

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 TE Tyler Higbee avoided "significant damage" to his knee in Sunday's NFC Championship win over the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Higbee's availability for the Super Bowl is "up in the air," per Rapoport, but it at least sounds like Higbee's injury won't impact his 2022 season.

Update: HC Sean McVay called Higbee's injury an MCL sprain. Consider the TE truly questionable for Super Bowl Sunday.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee left in the 1st half of the NFC title game with a right knee injury. Initially called questionable, he was downgraded to out by the middle of the 3rd quarter. We'll see about the severity of his injury.

Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) is active for tonight's NFC Championship game vs. the 49ers. He only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so don't expect Jefferson to be operating at 100%.

Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship vs. the 49ers. He only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Jefferson has just 3 catches on 4 targets over the past 2 weeks and will carry added risk if he suits up this weekend.

Rams HC Sean McVay expressed confidence in RB Cam Akers following a 2-fumble day at Tampa Bay. "[I] still have tremendous faith and confidence in Cam Akers, he's going to be a great player -- there will be a couple plays that he wants back. Then we had a little miscommunication on the one snap after we end up getting the turnover in their territory," McVay said via NFL.com. "Those are things that [we] can't have, but we were able to overcome it, and I'm excited for those guys." Akers fumbled once last year and 10 times in 36 career college games, so it’s an area to monitor going forward. Still, the fact that L.A. fed him 24 carries -- vs. just 1 for Sony Michel — says all we need to know about the team's plans in the NFC Championship.

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.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner sprained the MCL and PCL in his right knee in Sunday's win over the Lions, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Wagner will miss the regular-season finale, but the injury is not expected to affect him beyond that.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner suffered a knee injury early in Sunday's win over the Lions and did not return. We'll see about his outlook for Week 18, but Seattle has nothing to play for in the finale -- other than potentially damaging Arizona's playoff seed.

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