Akers (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

In Weeks 13 through 15, Akers established himself as the Rams' lead back, averaging 23 touches per game. He emerged from Week 15 with a high-ankle sprain and sat out Week 16 as a result, but upon his return to the lineup in Sunday's win over the Cardinals, he ripped off 86 yards from scrimmage on 25 touches. Now that he's bumped up from limited activity Tuesday to an uncapped session Wednesday, Akers is poised to pace L.A.'s backfield yet again in this weekend's wild-card game at Seattle.
