Darrell Henderson Jr. got the start at running back for the Rams against the Saints on Sunday and carried the ball twice on the opening drive. Then, he didn’t touch the ball again.
Henderson was limited to two carries and four total snaps played, giving way to Cam Akers and Kyren Williams as the lead backs. It was a questionable decision from Sean McVay considering Henderson started and gained 9 yards on two touches, with no injury being reported.
On Monday, McVay clarified that Henderson “felt a little something in his knee” before the game, which is why he was limited to just four snaps.
McVay didn’t expand beyond that, so it’s unclear what Henderson’s status is for Week 12.
Sean McVay said RB Darrell Henderson Jr. "felt a little something in his knee" before Sunday's game in New Orleans, which is what led to Cam Akers and Kyren Williams handling majority of workload in Week 11.
