Rams have big plan for Odell Beckham Jr. despite hip injury

Odell Beckham Jr. Rams Darrell Henderson

The Los Angeles Rams received some positive news on star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr, who had been dealing with a lingering hip injury throughout the past week.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Beckham Jr. is expected to be available for their Week 13 contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars to help the Rams end their worst three-game streak of the season.

Via Rapoport:

WR Odell Beckham Jr., slowed this week with a hip injury, is expected to play today and he should be a bigger part of the Rams offense, source said. As for RB Darrell Henderson (thigh), he is hopeful to play today even if he may not have a full workload.

The Los Angeles Rams have stumbled as of late and are looking to right the ship sooner rather than later after a sudden three-game losing skid. With the injury to wide receiver Robert Woods, the expectations from midseason arrival Odell Beckham Jr. heightened.

OBJ looked much more comfortable in his second outing with the Rams last week compared to the first, finishing with five catches for 81 yards, including his first touchdown in his new threads.

But even with Odell Beckham Jr. back and expected to have a heavier workload, the Rams would have to lessen that of running back Darrell Henderson who is dealing with a thigh injury. While Rapoport indicates that he is ‘hopeful’ to play, ESPN’s Adam Schefter claims the Rams are ‘not optimistic’ about his availability.

The Los Angeles Rams have one of the most stacked rosters in the NFL. While they’ve been banged up with injuries here and there, they still have the talent to turn things around and turn into one of the biggest threats come playoff time.
