    Rams' Cam Akers: Propels Rams' offense

    Cam Akers rushed the ball 18 times for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Los Angeles Rams' divisional-round loss to the Packers on Saturday. He added one reception for six yards.Akers' longest rush of the day went for 13 yards, though he managed to gain five or more yards on nine of his carries. He also converted the Rams' second touchdown of the contest, scoring from seven yards away on a direct snap. Though it took much of his rookie campaign, Akers established himself as the Rams' lead back by commanding at least 15 carries in each of his final six games -- dating back to the regular season. His role should only become more secure in 2021, as Malcolm Brown is set to hit free agency.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Scores, piles 176 scrimmage yards

    Cam Akers carried 28 times for 131 yards and a touchdown while catching both his targets for 45 additional yards during Saturday's 30-20 win over the Seahawks.With John Wolford (neck) leaving early and Jared Goff (thumb) battling through an injury of his own, Akers carried the offense as he piled up the second-most scrimmage yards in a single game in his young career. He averaged a healthy 4.7 yards per carry against an improved defensive front and made a splash with a team-long 44-yard reception as well. This was especially promising considering it was Akers' first playoff game and he will undoubtedly handle another large workload in the NFC divisional round. With that said, he will face a challenge against either the Packers or Buccaneers next week.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Logs full practice Wednesday

    Cam Akers (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.In Weeks 13 through 15, Akers established himself as the Los Angeles 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.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Limited on practice estimate

    Cam Akers (ankle) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.Akers returned in Week 17 from a high-ankle sprain after missing just one game. There was no indication that Akers was on a pitch count, as the rookie second-rounder logged 25 touches in the 18-7 win over the Cardinals, although his effectiveness was suspect with just 1.6 yards per carry. As long as Akers doesn't downgrade to non-participation for either of the next two sessions, he should be in the lineup for Saturday's wild-card showdown against the Seahawks.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Garners 25 Week 17 touches

    Cam Akers totaled 34 yards on 21 carries while corralling all four of his targets for 52 receiving yards during Sunday's 18-7 win against Arizona. He also lost a fumble.The second-round rookie had to battle through an ankle injury to suit up against the Cardinals, proving capable of overcoming a questionable tag despite logging just one limited session during the practice week. Though he posted his worst yards-per-carry average of the season, Akers was still provided with 20-plus rush attempts for the third time over his past four outings. Akers' contributions as a pass catcher, meanwhile, left him atop the team's Week 17 leaderboard in receiving yards. As Darrell Henderson (ankle) remains on IR for at least the first two rounds of the playoffs, Akers stands as Los Angeles' clear No. 1 back heading into a wild-card matchup against the Seahawks.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Available Week 17

    Cam Akers (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.Just two weeks removed from suffering a high-ankle sprain, Akers will be available as the Los Angeles Rams vie for slotting in the NFC playoff picture. With Darrell Henderson (ankle) on IR, the Rams may have been swayed by Akers practicing in a limited capacity Friday and not suffering an aggravation in the aftermath of the session. There's a chance Akers merely is available in case of an emergency, but if he serves beyond that capacity, he also could play second fiddle to a healthier Malcolm Brown out of L.A.'s backfield.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Expected to try and play Sunday

    Cam Akers (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, is likely to try and play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.After sitting out the Los Angeles Rams' Week 16 loss to the Seahawks with a high-ankle sprain, Akers sat out the team's first two Week 17 practices before he turned in a limited workout Friday. That was enough for Akers to garner the questionable tag heading into the weekend, and the rookie now appears to be gaining confidence that he'll be able to contribute in some capacity in the regular-season finale. Prior to getting hurt, Akers had been serving as the Rams' lead back, but he may only be in store for a limited role if active Week 17 since he'll be playing at less than 100 percent health. With Darrell Henderson (ankle) moving to injured reserve this week, Malcolm Brown now appears to be the top candidate to head the Los Angeles backfield Week 17.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Questionable for Week 17

    Cam Akers (ankle) returned to practice Friday as a limited participant and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.Akers suffered a high-ankle sprain Week 15 and didn't practice or play Week 16. He didn't seem likely to return for the regular-season finale, but the Los Angeles Rams are giving him a shot to suit up, after apparently being encouraged by what they saw Thursday during a workout and then Friday in a limited practice session. Fellow running back Darrell Henderson (ankle) is on injured reserve, so Malcolm Brown could be looking at a three-down role if Akers doesn't end up playing. The Rams are scheduled for a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, needing a win or a Bears loss to reach the playoffs. Quarterback Jared Goff (thumb) and receiver Cooper Kupp (reserve/COVID-19 list) both will miss the game, and left tackle Andrew Whitworth (knee) isn't expected to return from IR until the playoffs.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Gets in workout Thursday

    Coach Sean McVay said Cam Akers (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, but the Los Angeles Rams haven't ruled him out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals after he fit in a workout, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.Akers hasn't been seen in the portion of practices open to the media this week, but he appears to be making some progress through the high-ankle sprain that sidelined him Week 16. McVay likely wants Akers to get back on the field in some capacity Friday, at which point the Rams could make a determination on his status for the regular-season finale. If he's unable to suit up this weekend, L.A. will roll with Malcolm Brown as its lead back with Darrell Henderson on injured reserve due to his own high-ankle sprain.

    Rams' Cam Akers: Logs DNP on Wednesday

    Cam Akers (ankle) was estimated as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.Head coach Sean McVay relayed to Sarina Morales of the Los Angeles Rams' official site that Akers was "making great progress" with his high-ankle sprain, but McVay may have just meant the running back is doing well with the rehab process. Akers has two more opportunities to get on the practice field this week, as does fellow running back Malcolm Brown (shoulder), who was listed as limited Wednesday. With Darrell Henderson on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain, the Rams seem to be leaning toward Brown as their starting running back Sunday against the Cardinals, even if Akers is able to gain clearance to play.
