Friday update: Coach Sean McVay says that Henderson will be questionable this week.. He looks like he’ll be a game-day decision.
#Rams coach Sean McVay said receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) and running back Darrell Henderson (thigh) will be questionable for Sunday's game vs. Jaguars. Said he'd be surprised if OBJ missed it, but Henderson looks like a game-time decision. Receiver Ben Skowronek (back) is OK.— Kevin Modesti (@KevinModesti) December 3, 2021
Thursday update: Henderson once again didn’t practice on Thursday. He’ll need to return to practice on Friday to have a shot at playing. If he doesn’t, Sony Michel will take the lead role.
The Los Angeles Rams are hoping to get back in the win column in Week 13 when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars. LA could be without top running back Darrell Henderson as he is dealing with a thigh injury. He did not take part in Wednesday’s walkthrough practice.

Fantasy football implications
This is obviously something to monitor for Henderson’s managers, who saw the running back playing through some thigh issues throughout the season. Henderson does have some injury history over the last couple seasons and the Rams have a capable backup ready in Sony Michel. Since this was just a walkthrough estimation, the practice reports of note will be Thursday and Friday. Henderson and the Rams do have a favorable matchup against the Jaguars, so it would be a shame if the running back was unable to suit up due to an injury. Michel would be in line to lead the backfield if Henderson is out.
