Returns to Rams' practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-22

The Rams signed Henderson to their practice squad Wednesday.

With Kyren Williams (ankle) poised to return from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game in Arizona, the Rams made two procedural moves Tuesday, waiving Henderson and cutting Cameron McCutcheon from the practice squad. One day later, Henderson is taking McCutcheon's spot on the practice squad and now is a candidate to be elevated for Week 12 action, which would mark his third and final elevation of the campaign.

Gets cut by Rams

The Rams waived Henderson on Tuesday.

With Kyren Williams (ankle) poised to return from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game at Arizona, Henderson is getting cut to open up a spot on the Rams' active roster. At the same time, L.A. cut cornerback Cameron McCutcheon from its practice squad, seemingly freeing up a spot there for Henderson, assuming he clears waivers. With Williams out Weeks 7 through 10, Henderson started on all four occasions and totaled 215 yards from scrimmage and two rushing TDs on 56 touches.

Scores short TD on 10 touches

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-19

Henderson gained one yard and scored a rushing touchdown on six carries while catching four of seven targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 17-16 win over Seattle.

Henderson teamed up with fellow veteran Royce Freeman (17-73-0) to replace injured starter Kyren Williams (ankle) on Sunday. Henderson was the beneficiary of the Rams' lone rushing touchdown from one yard out, but he was inefficient with most of his remaining touches. The 26-year-old saw his carries and efficiency as a runner decrease in each of his four weeks spent helping fill in as starter. The Rams are expecting Williams back against the Cardinals in Week 12, which would put Henderson's role and spot on the active roster in jeopardy.

Gets 12 touches

Henderson rushed 10 times for 19 yards and caught both of his targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 20-3 loss to the Packers.

Henderson struggled to make a meaningful impact as Los Angeles' offense was ineffective as a whole under quarterback Brett Rypien. Although he hasn't been very efficient since rejoining the Rams, Henderson and Royce Freeman figure to remain the team's top tailbacks as long as Kyren Williams (ankle) and Ronnie Rivers (knee) are sidelined.

Joins active roster

The Rams signed Henderson off their practice squad Wednesday.

With Kyren Williams (ankle) and Ronnie Rivers (knee) on injured reserve, Henderson and Royce Freeman have split the reps out of the Rams backfield the last two games. During that stretch, Henderson has turned 34 touches into 151 yards from scrimmage and one rushing TD, while Freeman has had 21 carries for 110 yards and a TD himself. Except the breakdown between Henderson and Freeman to continue for as long as Williams and Rivers are sidelined.

Returns to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-30

Henderson reverted to the Rams' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

For the second straight game, Henderson and Royce Freeman split L.A.'s backfield reps with Kyren Williams (ankle) and Ronnie Rivers (knee) on injured reserve. Henderson's 29 (of 62) offensive snaps translated to 15 touches for 85 yards from scrimmage, while Freeman's 33 plays went for nine carries for 44 yards and one touchdown. The Rams have one elevation remaining to use on Henderson, so expect him to rejoin the active roster for Sunday's visit to Green Bay.

Gets it done as pass catcher

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-29

Henderson rushed the ball 12 times for 31 yards in Sunday's 43-20 loss to Dallas. He added three catches for 54 yards.

Henderson was out-produced on the ground by Royce Freeman, though he still had 15 touches as compared to Freeman's nine. In particular, his work in the passing game stood out as he led the team in receiving yards. While that's unlikely to repeat itself, Henderson has shown multiple paths to fantasy value in two games since taking over as the lead back in the absence of Kyren Williams (ankle) and Ronnie Rivers (knee).

Elevated to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-28

Henderson was elevated to the Rams' active roster Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

No surprise here, as Henderson started at running back for Los Angeles in Week 7 before subsequently reverting to the practice squad. He ultimately saw 68 snaps and 19 touches en route to 66 yards from scrimmage and a rushing touchdown. With both Kyren Williams (ankle) and Ronnie Rivers (knee) still on injured reserve, Henderson is presumably in line for a similar workload. Still, Royce Freeman, who got 16 carries for 66 yards on 29 snaps in the same game, figures to be involved. It remains to be seen if Myles Gaskin and Zach Evans fit into the equation at all as well.
