Source: Rams’ Akers out for ’21 with Achilles tear


Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers ruptured his Achilles while working out and underwent testing that confirmed the injury, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Akers is expected to miss the entire 2021 season.

In 13 games last season, Akers was the Rams’ leading rusher with 625 yards and two touchdowns on 145 carries. He also caught 11 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.

Akers, 22, spent two games sidelined after suffering a rib injury in Week 2 when he awkwardly fell on the football. He also played through a high ankle sprain later in the season.

In two playoff game appearances, Akers averaged 4.8 yards per carry and 110 yards per game.

Selected in the second round (No. 52 overall) of the 2020 draft from Florida State, the 5-foot-10, 217-pound Akers shared time last season with Darrell Henderson Jr. and Malcolm Brown.
