Rams RB Cam Akers has a high ankle sprain, Sean McVay says, which will cause him to miss this next game (Week 16), at least. (ESPN – Lindsey Thiry)
Nerdy Football Analysis: The injury happened in the first half of Week 15, which helps to explain why he saw so little time in the second half. It also helps to explain why he was mostly ineffective versus the Jets. Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown figure to return to their unpredictable committee in his absence next week against the Seahawks. Much as was the case before Akers’ emergence, both backs will be high-upside RB3s with low floors.
