    Rams' Darrell Henderson: Shows potential in spurts

    Darrell Henderson rushed 138 times for 624 yards and five touchdowns and caught 16 passes for 159 yards and another score through 15 games during the 2020 regular season. He sustained a season-ending, high-ankle sprain in Week 16.The Los Angeles Rams were expected to utilize a committee rushing attack to start the season with Henderson having a significant role. Rookie Cam Akers sustained a rib injury in training camp, and after veteran Malcolm Brown handled the lead role in Week 1, Henderson ascended to the top of the depth chart and accumulated 405 rushing yards and 109 receiving yards over the next six games. Akers got healthy, though, and the committee approach returned until the rookie proved to be the superior talent in Week 12. Akers piled up 645 rushing yards and 147 receiving yards through Los Angeles' final seven games, including the playoffs. Still, Henderson projects to have a role next season. Brown is a free agent, and even with Akers likely locked into a hefty workload, Henderson's too talented and athletic to be uninvolved in the offense.

    Rams' Darrell Henderson: On injured reserve, as expected

    The Los Angeles Rams placed Darrell Henderson (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday.As expected, Henderson will miss the regular-season finale and at least the first two rounds of the playoffs, assuming the Rams are able to qualify for the latter. In addition to Henderson hitting IR, the overall outlook for the offense has taken multiple hits, with Jared Goff requiring surgery on a broken and dislocated thumb Monday, Cam Akers tending to a high-ankle sprain of his own, and Cooper Kupp (undisclosed) landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. In the case of the backfield, if Akers joins Henderson on the sideline Sunday versus the Cardinals, Malcolm Brown will lead L.A.'s backfield, with Xavier Jones and Raymond Calais potentially getting reps as well.

    Rams' Darrell Henderson: IR expected

    Darrell Henderson suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Seahawks and is expected to be placed on injured reserve, Eric D. Williams of SI.com reports.Henderson logged 62 yards on 12 carries before exiting Sunday's loss. He now will miss the team's regular-season finale against the Cardinals, and it remains to be seen if he will be available for a potential postseason berth. Cam Akers (ankle) still could be available against Arizona, but if he isn't look for Malcolm Brown to see the majority of the work out of the backfield.

    Rams' Darrell Henderson: High-ankle sprain feared

    Darrell Henderson is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.Henderson was forced out of Sunday's divisional loss in the fourth quarter, logging 12 carries for 62 yards before his exit. It now appears as though Henderson's ankle issue could be significant, and with No. 1 running back Cam Akers already sidelined due to the same injury, Los Angeles' backfield could be severely lacking in depth Week 17. Malcolm Brown, Xavier Jones and Raymond Calais are currently the Los Angeles Rams' only healthy tailbacks.

    Rams' Darrell Henderson: Hurts ankle Sunday

    Darrell Henderson left Sunday's game at Seattle with a left ankle injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.The Los Angeles Rams are already without No. 1 running back Cam Akers due to a high-ankle sprain, and now his replacement is tending to an ankle issue of his own. Henderson is doubtful to return to the field, so he seems destined to end Week 16 with 12 carries for 62 yards. With Akers and Henderson sidelined, L.A. has turned to Malcolm Brown out of the backfield.

    Rams' Darrell Henderson: More opportunities on tap Week 16

    Head coach Sean McVay said both Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown will be "heavily involved" in the Los Angeles Rams' game plan Sunday in Seattle with top back Cam Akers (ankle) ruled out for the contest, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports. "I mean they'll both get work," McVay said of Henderson and Brown. "As far as the specifics, I'm not really sure. We're just getting into the initial parts of the game plan."Before Akers emerged as the team's clear top back over the past three games, the lead option out of the Los Angeles backfield had been a difficult one to predict in any given week. Expect that to be the case this weekend, as McVay was unwilling to anoint either Henderson or Brown as the No. 1 option, nor was he willing to divulge how the work may be divvied up between the two. For fantasy managers looking to roll the dice on one of the two backs this week, Henderson represents the more intriguing option, as he's displayed more explosiveness as a runner and receiver than Brown, who is valued mainly for his skills in pass protection. Henderson averaged 4.8 yards per carry and 8.0 yards per target through the Rams' first eight games, but his efficiency has taken a big hit -- along with his overall opportunities -- so far in the second half of the season (3.4 YPC, 4.3 YPT in six games).

    Rams' Darrell Henderson: Uninvolved in loss

    Darrell Henderson rushed once for a loss of two yards and caught his only target for five yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Jets. He played just seven of 59 offensive snaps.The sophomore has now been limited to just 39 rushes for 151 yards and seven receptions for 50 yards over the past seven games. Additionally, with rookie Cam Akers the clear No. 1 back over the past three contests, Henderson's outlook isn't promising heading into Los Angeles' Week 16 matchup against Seattle.

    Rams' Darrell Henderson: Watches rookie run all over Pats

    Darrell Henderson rushed twice for five yards and only played seven offensive snaps during Thursday's 24-3 win over New England.The second-year rusher took a backseat to rookie Cam Akers on Thursday, as Akers churned out big run after big run on Los Angeles' first two drives, and coach Sean McVay leaned on him thereafter. Henderson's two carries won't pay the fantasy bills, and managers should be concerned, even if it's been speculated that Akers' role was likely to expand for the past few weeks. While it would be surprising if Henderson didn't see more work over the coming weeks, veteran Malcolm Brown also will likely receive some playing time. As a result, anyone counting on production from Henderson in the fantasy playoffs should be worried. He's probably going to struggle to produce as long as Akers is healthy and showing the form he has the past three weeks.

    Rams' Darrell Henderson: Finds end zone in win

    Darrell Henderson carried the ball three times for 49 yards and a touchdown and caught two of three targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 38-28 win over the Cardinals.He left the game briefly in the second quarter to get his knee checked out and overall took a back seat to rookie Cam Akers, who got 21 carries, but Henderson nearly matched Akers' fantasy production thanks to a 38-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. Nonetheless, Henderson's role and value seem to be waning heading into Week 14's clash with a Patriots defense that just shut out the Chargers.
