The Los Angeles Rams won’t have breakout star running back Kyren Williams for the foreseeable future after he was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury. 

That means Williams will miss the team’s Week 7 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With Williams out, the Rams have a massive hole to fill on offense. They also lost running back Ronnie Rivers to injury, so the team will have a committee approach in Week 7.

Williams will not play against the Steelers in Week 7 after he was placed on injured reserve. 

Which Rams running back to target with Kyren Williams on injured reserve

The Rams are expected to have a running back by committee approach this week with veterans Darrell Henderson and Royce Freeman leading the way. Youngster Zach Evans may also factor into the team’s plans. 

Henderson may be the best bet to lead the team in touches, as he was the feature back for the Rams at times in previous seasons before being waived last season.

He’s comfortable in Sean McVay’s offense, and may be worth a shot in the prop market.
