I think there will be options

As big a blow this is for them, I think the reality is RBs are one of the most replaceable positions in the game. And if the OL is good they can still have an effective running game.

Dillon was a guy I liked last year and hoped the Rams might take in the late 3rd if he lasted that long. He didn't get a lot of work as a rookie in Green Bay. I wouldn't trade a 3rd for him but it would be interesting to kick the tires on him.

I think they have to shift to a committee approach. Henderson isn't going to carry the ball 300 times but he did have a 10-game stretch last season where he was on the field almost 30 snaps/game. I think they have to hope to get ~12 carries/game from Henderson and piece the rest together behind him.
