    Rams RB Kyren Williams placed on injured reserve
    • October 21, 2023

    Rams running back Kyren Williams was placed on injured reserve Saturday, sidelining the second-year back for at least the next four games with his sprained left ankle.

    The earliest Williams will be able to return to game action is Week 12 at Arizona.

    Williams took over as the Rams’ lead back in Week 2 as he won the job from Week 1 starter Cam Akers. He scored two touchdowns in each of the Rams’ first two games, then broke out with his first 100-yard performance in Week 4 against the Colts.

    He helped lead the Rams to victory in Week 6 with 153 yards in the second half of a 26-9 win over the Cardinals, but left the game in the fourth quarter with an ankle sprain. The Rams initially were not concerned he would miss time, but by Monday realized the injury was more extensive than expected. Williams was in a cast and getting around with a scooter during practices this week.

    The Rams promoted newly signed Darrell Henderson from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He joins new signee Myles Gaskin, rookie Zach Evans and veteran Royce Freeman on the Rams’ active roster, but the team may opt to leave one of the backs inactive for the game.
