Peyton Barber to the Redskins on a two-year deal, per source. Bucs’ 2018 leading rusher enters Washington fray.
Peyton Barber joins Adrian Peterson and Derius Guice in the Washington backfield for 2020. Barber's best season was in 2018, where he ran for 871 yards and five touchdowns, plus added another 92 yards and a score in the air. He'll compete for a roster spot and work on his new team.
Rams head coach Sean McVay told reporters Friday that RB Darrell Henderson will start and lead the team in carries. Sony Michel may see more snaps but McVay wants to "get him (Henderson) into the flow of the game after he had few opportunities in the first half of the season opener."
No surprise that Henderson will lead the team in carries as they decide how to proceed with him and Michel going forward. A strong performance Week 2 will keep Henderson in the driver's seat for at least one more week.
Lions RBs D'Andre Swift (groin) and Jamaal Williams (chest) were limited Friday according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Neither is considered an issue ahead of Monday's game against Green Bay.
The only way to feel good about either popping up on the injury report is if they're set to play Monday without an injury designation.
