Sep 9 PM update: Head coach Sean McVay announced that Williams will have surgery on his high ankle sprain, per Gary Klein. Williams is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

Sep 9 AM update: Williams has suffered a high ankle sprain, per ESPN’s Field Yates. He could be out up to six weeks. Williams was in a good spot to see work as Cam Akers did little with his few touches Thursday night and Williams had been moving up the depth chart. With little depth at the position, the Rams will likely look to add a running back soon.

Rams running back Kyren Williams suffered an ankle injury on Thursday night and is questionable to return. Williams likely suffered the injury on special teams, as he hasn’t been in on offense. The rookie has been getting plenty of praise this preseason from head coach Sean McVay. Hopefully the injury isn’t too serious.

The Rams, so far, have given Darrell Henderson all the work, with Cam Akers as his backup. Neither have done anything, but that’s how it’s been going so far.
