The Indianapolis Colts held a workout for free-agent running back Darrell Henderson, according to the league’s transaction wire Tuesday.
Henderson, 26, was a former third-round pick with the Los Angeles Rams during the 2019 NFL draft out of Memphis. He spent three and a half seasons with the Rams working mostly in a timeshare before he was waived during the 2023 season.
He was claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars but was waived again a few weeks later in 2023.
In 50 career games (28 starts), Henderson has recorded 396 carries for 1,742 rushing yards (4.4 YPC) and 13 rushing touchdowns. He’s also recorded 66 receptions on 92 targets for 474 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns.
The Colts have some major depth issues running back entering Week 2. Star Jonathan Taylor is currently on the PUP list for at least three more games while rookie Evan Hull was placed on the injured reserve list this week due to a knee injury he suffered in the season opener.
We’ll see if anything comes of this workout, but Henderson would be an interesting addition to the backfield considering his experience and mild success since entering the league.
