Natson out 4-6 weeks with hamstring injury; Havenstein and Everett day-to-day

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Rams starting PR/KR JoJo Natson suffered a hamstring injury in their win over the Cardinals on Sunday and will miss the next 4-6 weeks, head coach Sean McVay announced Monday.

"We'll have some further updates on what exactly that means in terms of his status and how we'll handle that," McVay said.

McVay said "there's a good chance" rookie RB Darrell Henderson Jr. will be the next man up on kickoff returns, while rookie WR Nsimba Webster is expected to get a shot at punt returns given his consistency with those duties in the preseason.

Henderson returned 25 kickoffs in three seasons at the University of Memphis, averaging 19.5 yards per return. Natson averaged a team-high 9.3 yards per punt return across the three chances he got in August.

In other injury news, T Rob Havenstein (knee) and TE Gerald Everett (knee) are both day-to-day.

Havenstein, who was a limited participant in practice last Thursday and Friday before missing his third straight game, "continues to make good progress," according to McVay.

Everett was a non-participant all week prior to missing the Cardinals game as a result of the knee injury he sustained against the Ravens on Monday Night Football.
