Rams waive Super Bowl-winning RB

With Kyren Williams back to full health, Darrell Henderson saw his latest Rams stint come to an end. The latter was waived on Tuesday, per a team announcement.

Williams’ move to injured reserve prompted a reunion with Henderson, who spent his first four years with Los Angeles. With the vacancy created in the Rams backfield by Williams going down (along with the trade that dealt away Cam Akers), Henderson was able to shoulder a notable workload in his short-lived return.

The 26-year-old received 46 carries and caught 10 passes during his four games on the active roster. Henderson turned that into 112 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, along with 103 yards through the air. Those figures were not enough to earn him an extended look upon Williams’ return, so Henderson will not hit the waiver wire. It will be interesting to see if an interested team puts in a claim for him, as the Jaguars did in 2022.

Failing that, Henderson will be a candidate to re-sign to the Rams practice squad. In any case, Los Angeles will look to improve on the ground in the second half of the campaign, with the team sitting 20th in the NFL at an average of 103 yards per game on the ground. Despite his missed time, Williams (who can be expected to be activated from IR in the coming days) still comfortably leads the Rams with 456 rushing yards. He and veteran Royce Freeman will carry the load moving forward.

The Rams improved to 4-6 with a win in Week 11, quarterback Matthew Stafford‘s return to action. With Stafford and Williams now back in the fold, Los Angeles will attempt to make a late playoff push. Unless he is retained via the taxi squad, though, Henderson will not play a role in that effort.
