Los Angeles Rams' Running Backs Injury Updates

Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay said that running back Cam Akers "wasn't able to get a full-speed workout in quite yet."

Akers has been out with a soft tissue injury for a few weeks now and, although it's not considered a serious injury, the longer it takes him to get back on the field, the worse it's starting to look for his Week 1 availability. 

In the good news for the Rams, coach Sean McVay said that running back Darrell Henderson was able to go through a full-speed workout. McVay also said that he was "really excited" about getting Henderson back. 

Darrell Henderson, the Rams RB2 entering the season, appears to have leap-frogged Akers in his recovery, also from a soft-tissue injury. 

He's expected to return to practice this week. If Akers can't recover from his soft-tissue injury in time for Week 1, it's looking more and more likely that Henderson will be the Rams primary back for that game.
