| Darrell Henderson not expected to play|
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 26, 7:30 am
|Rams’ RB Darrell Henderson, who is questionable for Sunday due to a rib injury, is not expected to play today vs. the Buccaneers, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Jake Funk and Sony Michel should handle the majority of running back touches for the Rams today against the Buccaneers. Game plans don't typically call for running against the Bucs so Michel's upside is probably capped at an RB2 level in Week 3.
| Darrell Henderson injures thumb in practice|
Rams RB could be limited, but not a lot of info on recovery

|Via Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) on Twitter:
Rams RB Darrell Henderson injured his thumb during practice. "I'm not sure," Sean McVay said after practice when asked about his status. "He got his thumb. Don't have any updates on that." (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Thanks for the info, Sean! Coach was probably annoyed because the Rams are basically "all in" on the veteran back, and the RB depth in Los Angeles is pretty thin because of the devastating Cam Akers injury in the offseason. So if Henderson misses time we'll see a lot of UDFA Xavier Jones, who was signed in 2020. Other than that it's just seventh-round selection Jake Funk, who could carve out a role eventually.
| Cam Akers out for the season with Achilles tear|
Suffered injury while training

|#Rams RB Cam Akers suffered a torn Achilles while training, per source.
Brutal blow for L.A., which loses its leading rusher from last season a week before camp begins. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Brutal. Akers was inline to be a workhorse back and was highly sought after by the fantasy community checking in with a 2nd round ADP. Darrell Henderson, Xavier Jones, Raymond Calais and Jake Funk are next up on the depth chart but don't be surprised if the Rams make a play for a free agent running back. Le'Veon Bell, Duke Johnson and Adrian Peterson are still free agents. Henderson's value should be on the rise with this news.
