Los Angeles Rams Key Running Backs Dealing With Soft Tissue Injuries

Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay said running backs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson are both dealing with "soft tissue" injuries and are being held out of practice, as a result. 

Yikes, that's not the news you want to hear.

McVay also said that neither will practice until they can be "full speed" in the team drills. No timeline was given for when they might be able to return to practice. 

There does not sound to be any major concern regarding the two RBs, and of course, neither player was going to play in a preseason game anyways. However, soft tissue injuries tend not to be minor injuries.

It remains to be seen how this situation will unfold in the coming weeks leading up to the start of the regular season on September 8th. 

Rookie Kyren Williams and Jake Funk will get the reps with the starters in practice in the meantime.
