    Rams' Sony Michel: Improves to limited practice

    Sony Michel (shoulder) was limited at Thursday's practice.After sitting out Wednesday due to the shoulder injury he picked up this past Sunday against the Giants, Michel was spotted in a red non-contact jersey Thursday, but he got in some work, per Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic. Michel will aim to get back to an uncapped session Friday, but in any case the Los Angeles Rams could clarify his status upon the released of their final Week 7 practice report. If he's able to suit up Sunday versus the Lions, he'll serve as Darrell Henderson's top backup.

    Rams' Sony Michel: Missing practice to begin week

    Sony Michel (shoulder) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.That said, head coach Sean McVay told Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com that he doesn't believe Michel's shoulder injury will affect his availability for Sunday's game against the Lions, so look for the fourth-year back to potentially approach that contest without an injury designation. If active Week 7, Michel would be in line for his usual No. 2 role behind lead back Darrell Henderson.

    Rams' Sony Michel: Efficient in win over Giants

    Sony Michel (shoulder) rushed nine times for 42 yards during Sunday's 38-11 win over New York.The first-year Ram sustained a shoulder injury during the contest, but he isn't expected to miss any time. Michel is playing second fiddle to Darrell Henderson with the latter scoring twice and playing 42 more offensive snaps against the Giants on Sunday. With Henderson the clear No. 1 running back, Michel's current fantasy value is capped. Still, it's probably safe to assume Michel would step into a significant role if Henderson were ever to miss time, so Michel has wait-and-see value warranting a roster spot in most formats.

    Rams' Sony Michel: Tending to shoulder injury

    Sony Michel injured his shoulder during a Week 6 road win against the Giants, but the Los Angeles Rams expect him to be available Sunday versus the Lions, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.Since his arrival from New England in late August, Michel's usage on game days has been tied to the Rams' available personnel out of the backfield, with his snap shares ranging from six to 73 percent through six games. Overall, he's averaged 3.8 YPC on 54 rushes, gathered in four of five targets for 20 yards and scored one TD on the ground. Now with a shoulder issue in tow, Michel's practice reps likely will be capped during Week 7 prep.

    Rams' Sony Michel: Finds end zone in win

    Sony Michel rushed 11 times for 37 yards and a touchdown and added an eight-yard reception during Thursday's 26-17 win over Seattle.Most of Michel's work came in the second quarter while starting running back Darrell Henderson was nursing an injury on the sideline. Michel's touchdown came in the middle of the fourth quarter on a two-yard rush, however. While Henderson has looked more explosive of the two backs this season, he's already missed an entire game and doesn't look capable of staying healthy for the long haul in a three-down role. Additionally, Michel has been solid when his number has been called, even if his statistics don't jump off the page.

    Rams' Sony Michel: Reverts to backup role

    Sony Michel rushed three times for 11 yards and played just seven of 68 offensive snaps during Sunday's 37-20 loss to Arizona.With Darrell Henderson back in the lineup and handling the majority of the backfield work, Michel returned to a secondary role for the Los Angeles Rams. Henderson racked up 116 yards from scrimmage while playing 61 of 68 offensive snaps. Head coach Sean McVay has typically gone with a bell-cow back during his tenure with the Rams, so as long as Henderson is healthy and running well, Michel's fantasy value is probably going to be limited. However, the first-year Ram should still be rostered in the majority of settings because of his upside if the oft-injured Henderson misses time.

    Rams' Sony Michel: Paces backfield

    Sony Michel carried the ball 20 times for 67 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over Tampa Bay.Michel handled 20 of the team's 24 carries with Darrell Henderson (ribs) sidelined. Michel wasn't particularly efficient, though he did manage gains of 15 and 11 yards to pace his effort. Most importantly, Sunday's usage certainly suggests that Michel would continue to serve as the lead back in a Week 4 matchup against Arizona if Henderson were to remain sidelined.

    Rams' Sony Michel: Likely Week 3 lead back

    Sony Michel is set to operate as a featured back Sunday against the Buccaneers with Darrell Henderson (ribs) inactive, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.Michel rattled off 46 yards on 10 carries versus the Colts with Henderson exiting that Week 2 contest early, and he's now set to pace the backfield versus the Buccaneers. The matchup against Tampa Bay's brick wall of a defensive front isn't exactly enviable, and seventh-round rookie Jake Funk will rotate in as well, per Rodrigue. However, Michel's edge in experience over Funk and strong performance Week 2 should allow him to lead the ground attack.

    Rams' Sony Michel: May lead backfield Sunday

    Sony Michel is ready for a bigger workload and may even start Sunday against the Buccaneers with Darrell Henderson (ribs) questionable for the contest, Stu Jackson of the Los Angeles Rams' official site reports.Henderson was knocked out of Week 2 action in the fourth quarter with what eventually was termed a rib cartilage injury. Pain management has been his course of action this week, which didn't allow him to get on the practice field. The Rams are expected to take a decision on Henderson down to the wire -- they kick off Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET -- but Michel is preparing for whatever coach Sean McVay puts on his plate. This past Sunday at Indianapolis, Michel didn't get a touch until Henderson departed, but he finished the game with 10 carries for 46 yards. Aside from Henderson (if available) and Michel, Jake Funk is the only other RB on the active roster, while Buddy Howell and Javian Hawkins are candidates to be elevated from the practice squad Saturday.

    Rams' Sony Michel: Steps in effectively for Henderson

    Sony Michel carried 10 times for 46 yards in the Los Angeles Rams' 27-24 win over the Colts on Sunday.A non-factor in his first game in a Rams uniform against Chicago last Sunday night, Michel was called upon to helm the backfield versus the Colts when Darrell Henderson went down with a rib injury in the second half. Michel was explosive and efficient with his opportunities, helping Los Angeles kill some clock late. He could be set for a continuation of his fourth-quarter workload in a Week 3 home showdown against the Buccaneers if Henderson is forced to sit out the contest.
