He does leave open the possibility that the Rams could revisit the situation later in training camp depending on how things look.
Jourdan Rodrigue points out Henderson hasn’t been able to stay healthy in his Rams career so far and wasn’t completely healthy this spring.
She adds the Rams do really like Jones and if they don’t add another running back, that says even more about their expectations for him.
Henderson, 23, was a third-round pick by the Rams in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Memphis after Los Angeles traded up with the Buccaneers to acquire him. He is currently playing on a four-year, $4.21 million rookie contract.
In 2020, Henderson appeared in 15 games for the Rams and rushed 138 times for 624 yards (4.5 YPC) and five touchdowns. He also added 16 receptions for 159 yards (9.9 YPC) and one touchdown.
Jones, 23, signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of SMU following the 2020 NFL Draft. He signed a three-year deal and made the 53-man roster coming out of camp.
In 2020, Jones appeared in 13 games for the Rams. He didn’t have a touch on offense but did record four kickoff return yards.
