Rams’ HC Sean McVay said RB Darrell Henderson Jr. is being placed on injured reserve due to an MCL injury.
With Henderson's season over, it would be assumed Michel takes over as the RB1 for at least Week 17. But the team said there is a good possibility Akers plays in Week 17 coming off an Achilles injury. One wouldn't think the Rams give Akers a ton of work this week, meaning Michel should be an RB1 play, coming off another huge game. We'll likely hear more about Akers' role as the week goes on. The Rams play at the Ravens in an early Sunday game in Week 17.
