Suffered injury while training
#Rams RB Cam Akers suffered a torn Achilles while training, per source.
Brutal blow for L.A., which loses its leading rusher from last season a week before camp begins. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Brutal. Akers was inline to be a workhorse back and was highly sought after by the fantasy community checking in with a 2nd round ADP. Darrell Henderson, Xavier Jones, Raymond Calais and Jake Funk are next up on the depth chart but don’t be surprised if the Rams make a play for a free agent running back. Le’Veon Bell, Duke Johnson and Adrian Peterson are still free agents. Henderson’s value should be on the rise with this news.
