"As long as we pick up enough protections, I could care less what we do," he said. "Just make sure the quarterback is good, we're doing our job."

But Gurley gave Henderson a positive review for his performance against the Raiders.

"There's nothing really to tell him," Gurley said. "Just in-game experience and just working on little things ... but nothing too crazy."


Blake Bortles completed seven of 11 passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in three series in the first quarter for the Rams before he was replaced by Brandon Allen in the second quarter. Two passes by Bortles were deflected at the line of scrimmage and one was dropped by receiver Mike Thomas. ... JoJo Natson caught a short touchdown pass but fumbled a punt. ... Receiver Jalen Green had four catches for 43 yards in the first half. ... Linebackers Bryce Hager and Natrez Patrick combined to sack Dak Prescott during the first series. ... Cornerback Dont'e Deayon intercepted a pass in the third quarter. ... Rams linebacker Obo Okoronkwo, a draft pick in 2018 who did not play in a game last season because of injuries, deflected a pass and forced two holding penalties in his first appearance in the NFL. ... Prescott and other Cowboys starters played one series and drove 92 yards in 12 plays for a touchdown. The drive was capped with a 14-yard run by rookie running back Tony Pollard, a former teammate of Henderson at Memphis.
