Darrell Henderson Jr., Tyler Higbee Sit Out Practice Thursday

Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (thigh) and tight end Tyler Higbee (hand) were both absent from Thursday's practice, throwing their status for Monday's game against Chicago into flux. This is the first of an injury concern for either, which could mean that the move was a precautionary one by the Rams with an extra day allocated for playing on Monday Night Football. Henderson appears to have wrestled full-time RB1 duties away from Malcolm Brown, thereby becoming a high-end RB2 in most season-long formats. Higbee has established a safe floor, making at least two receptions in each of his first six games, but he has logged more than three catches just once. The duo will have two additional days of potential practice to get in, so it's worth keeping an eye on their status until there's further clarification.
