Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers has suffered a torn Achilles during training camp and will miss the upcoming 2021 NFL Season.

Akers is the team’s top running back and finished the season last year as the Ram’s leading rusher. He averaged over 6.3 attempts per game to over 20 towards the end of the season. 

In a press conference earlier this week, Coach Sean McVay was quoted saying, “We’ve got some young backs on our roster that I’m intrigued about seeing how they handle this opportunity. I don’t know that the veteran route is something that we would rule out, but it’s not something that we’re immediately looking to address right now.”

The Rams were definitely depending on him to come through this season and he gave them hope, but without him, on the field, they will still have a shot at the Super Bowl with quarterback Matthew Stafford.

What do y’all think? Will Akers absence affect the Rams or will Stafford and the rest of the squad be able to hold it down until he gets back?
