Darrell Henderson suffered a high ankle sprain and will be put on injured reserve. Henderson had 49 rushing yards, including a 38-yard touchdown run, against the Cardinals in the Rams’ 38-28 win in Week 13.
Cam Akers, who is also dealing with a high ankle sprain, did not play in Week 16 in the Rams’ 20-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. His status is a little more optimistic.
LAR RB Malcolm Brown - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Arizona
Much like how the season started, we end it with Malcolm Brown as the lead back for the Rams. Just like we all predicted, right? Brown carried the workload in the second half of last week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks as Darrell Henderson went down with an injury. Brown finished the game with seven carries for 27 yards and caught 1-of-3 targets for eight yards.
With Henderson and Cam Akers expected to miss this week’s game and with Jared Goff also out, Brown might be looking at a huge workload this week. Brown will see enough work to keep as a strong RB2 in the regular-season finale.
