Rams-Patriots TNF: Cam Akers has a shoulder injury

After his busiest career day, Akers didn’t come out unscathed

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Sean McVay gave rookie running back Cam Akers 50 snaps on Sunday — more than double his previous career-high — with 21 rushing attempts. Akers was certainly looking like the number one back against the Arizona Cardinals, but it appears as though the LA Rams rookie runner did not come out of the game unscathed.

According to the Rams injury report on Monday, which is released this early in the week because LA is facing the New England Patriots on Thursday, Akers and defensive end Michael Brockers were both listed as “Did Not Participate” on the list. The Rams did not actually practice Monday, but if they had, then Akers and Brockers would have sat out.

The injury reason given for Akers was “shoulder.” Brockers left Sunday’s game against the Cardinals and was listed with a neck injury on Monday. Terrell Lewis (knee) was considered as “limited” availability, had the Rams practiced.

The Rams and the Patriots play on Thursday evening, giving Akers and Brockers even less time to be ready for the next game.
