Is Darrell Henderson Playing in Week 3? (Fantasy Football Injury Updates)
Darrell Henderson has been solid so far this season for the Rams and fantasy managers, scoring a touchdown in each of the team’s first two games. However, Henderson continues to deal with the same rib injury that hampered him Week 2. So, is Henderson going to suit up Week 3 against the Buccaneers? Here’s the latest.
Darrell Henderson Jr. not expected to play in Week 3
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting Rams RB Darrell Henderson Jr. (ribs) is not expected to play in Week 3.
Updating an earlier report, it now looks like Henderson is trending in the wrong direction to play in Sunday’s matchup with the Buccaneers. Even more so. Sony Michel and Jake Funk will handle the running back duties for the Rams if Henderson is ultimately ruled out.
What the Experts are Saying
At the time of writing, we’re still waiting for clarity on the severity of Darrell Henderson’s rib injury. Even if Henderson is set to play in this matchup, he probably won’t be operating at 100%. Against the stout Bucs run defense, it’s probably best to leave Henderson on your bench this week unless we get clarity on Friday that he’s 100%. We’ll continue to update as the week progresses. If Henderson is out for this matchup, Sony Michel obviously moves up in the rankings, but he still has a very tough matchup in front of him. He should be viewed as a high-end/mid-range RB3 in that instance. We’ll continue to monitor Henderson’s progress and update as the week goes along.
