Latest news on Cam Akers’ injury status
Injury Status: Active
Updated: Dec. 18
UPDATE (Dec. 13): Akers rushed 12 times for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Rams’ 17-16 win over the Raiders on Thursday night, while catching his only target for one yard. He also made a mistake.
UPDATE 2: In the Seahawks’ 27-23 loss on Sunday, Akers carried the ball 17 times for 60 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught his only target for zero yards.
UPDATE: Cam Akers (illness) is listed as questionable for the game against Seattle on Sunday.
Cam Akers was one of a few players across the league who missed practice this week due to illness.
Normally, a Wednesday illness designation has no significant consequences. However, issues with players missing games (Damien Harris) or struggling during games have persisted.
This is one to watch in the coming days because the impact on fantasy value could be massive. Kyren Williams becomes an extremely appealing fantasy option if Akers is out or limited this week. If Akers is unable to play, Ronnie Rivers will most likely fill in.
We’ll know how serious the situation is if the Rams start working out extra backs this week.
They currently have no backs on their practice squad, so if Akers is unable to play this week, they may want to add an insurance option.
