Rams Waive Darrell Henderson
NFL Week 12 - The Los Angeles Rams have officially waived running back Darrell Henderson, according to a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Henderson has started 28 games for the Rams over the last three seasons, including seven games this year. Over that span, Henderson rushed for 1,595 yards, caught for an additional 437 yards, and scored 19 total touchdowns. In 2020 and 2021, Henderson finished 4th and 12th respectively in rushing DVOA rankings among qualified running backs.
While No Rams running back has the 88 rushes to qualify for our DVOA rankings, Henderson was performing much better than teammate Cam Akers, leading him in rushing DVOA 9.5% to -30.6% and in rushing DYAR 49 to -71. Henderson also ranked 15th among all running backs in receiving DVOA.
The Rams currently have Cam Akers and Kyren Williams on their roster. Los Angeles has struggled to run the ball this year amid a series of offensive line injuries, currently ranking 26th in offensive rushing DVOA.
