Rams running back Kyren Williams recovering and expected back during training camp
Los Angeles Rams rookie running back Kyren Williams suffered a broken foot during last week’s OTA’s and is expected to be out until sometime during training camp in July. Williams is expected to be third on the Rams RB depth chart behind Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson. While at Notre Dame, Williams played in 12 games during the last two seasons, rushing for over 1,000 yards in both seasons and catching 77 passes for 675 yards and four touchdowns. In 2021 he also added 151 yards on 14 kick returns, averaging 10.8 yards per return.
The former Notre Dame standout was selected by the Rams in the fifth round (164th overall) of the 2022 NFL draft after trading up from the 175th pick.
“He got surgery, everything went really well,” McVay said. “And we expect him to be back at some point in the earlier parts of training camp. But he’s gonna attack the rehab the right way and it’s an unfortunate setback and he’s gonna attack his rehab the right way and be back sooner than later.”
Last year the Rams running backs were hit with a slew of injuries, Cam Akers missed most of the season with a torn Achilles, Darrell Henderson missed much of 2021 with knee and quad injuries, and teammates Xavier Jones, Raymond Calais, and rookie Jake Funk spent significant time on IR.
