Report: Rams not optimistic Darrell Henderson Jr. will play vs. Jaguars

·1 min read

Sean McVay indicated on Friday that Darrell Henderson Jr. could be a game-time decision against the Jaguars due to his thigh injury suffered against the Packers. He will test the injury pre-game to determine whether he’ll be able to play, but the Rams aren’t optimistic about him suiting up, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Henderson missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday before being limited to close out the week on Friday. Considering the opponent and McVay’s comments on Sony Michel keeping the Rams offense on track with his physical running style, it wouldn’t be the least bit surprising if the Rams keep Henderson out.

And even if Henderson does play, he probably won’t have a full workload like he usually does as the No. 1 running back.

The Rams must submit their list of inactive players 90 minutes before kickoff, so we’ll find out about Henderson’s status at around 2:35 p.m. ET. If you have him in fantasy, it might be wise to take him out of your lineup now, though.
