Rams Beat: RB Todd Gurley's decreased workload helping backups

Longtime backup Malcolm Brown and rookie Darrell Henderson have shared a bulk of the snaps with the starting offense in Todd Gurley's absence.

"The biggest learning point in this game is just having experience," Brown said. "So being able to get the reps during practice when T.G. has those off days, I'm thankful for it, because it's not doing anything but getting me better."

Brown and Henderson could find themselves playing a significant role depending on the status of Gurley, although coach Sean McVay won't commit to any increased playing time.

Fantasy Impact: 

McVay said specifically said Brown's workload during the season is yet to be determined. The Rams matched the Lions offer sheet for Brown who was a restricted free agent. McVay called Henderson a "change of pace back" in the story but said it remains to be seen just what kind of work he'll get behind Gurley and Brown.
