Cam Akers

It was fully expected that former second-round pick Cam Akers was going to be moving on from the Los Angeles Rams after being inactive for the last two games for personal reasons. However, it appears that the two sides may have settled their differences.

After not being traded at the NFL trade deadline, it is now expected that Akers will return to practice for the Rams, according to NFL insider Tom Pelissero.

Rams head coach Sean McVay reportedly had a “good talk” with Akers on Wednesday, and there may even be a possibility that the third-year running back could play in the team’s Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Coming into the season Akers was expected by many to be the feature back for the Rams, but shockingly saw his playing time reduced drastically.

Many took to social media to reveal their potential excitement for Akers’ return to action for Los Angeles.

It is certainly odd to see Akers’ career trajectory in the NFL thus far, going from seemingly a valuable piece of the Rams’ future to having no role on the team whatsoever.

Los Angeles is looking for any answer they can find right now amidst their struggles this season, currently sitting at just 3-4 on the year just one year after a Super Bowl victory.

Their matchup against the Buccaneers certainly looms large, with both teams desperately needing a win to stay in the NFC playoff picture moving forward.

Cam Akers has shown previously that he can be a difference-maker for the Rams, and it appears like he may get his chance to make an impact yet again in Los Angeles.
