St. Louis Rams: It Begins - C.J. Akins Waived

David Welker

Undrafted free agent C.J. Akins has been waived by the Rams. The Angelo State product suffered an Achilles tendon injury earlier this month.

C.J. Akins (WR) Waived, Injured, Prior to Cut to 75 (waived, injured, prior to cut to 75) - NFL.com

Akins was considered a long shot to make the Rams now-filled wide receiver roster. His 2012 college stats were interesting: 49 receptions, for 781 yards and 7 touchdowns.

While I'm sure the Center for Disease Control (C.D.C.) aren't involved just yet, the rash of Achilles injuries thus far this season is at the edge of troubling. The 49ers Michael Crabtree and Seattle's Anthony McCoy were the first NFC West players to suffer the injury named after Brad Pitt...

I hope young Mr. Akins recovers soon from his injury, and can continue to pursue his dream of playing in the NFL.
