Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers will miss the entire 2021 season after tearing his Achilles during an off-season workout this week.  The Rams confirmed that Akers will miss the entire season due to the injury, which was discovered after thorough medical tests and evaluations.

The 22-year-old Akers joined the Rams in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, leading the team with 625 rushing yards in 13 appearances as a rookie. He totaled 748 yards from scrimmage and three scores and started five times in 2020, and posted a season-high 171 rushing yards on 29 carries in a Week 13 win over the New England Patriots.

The Rams start the preseason with a game against the Los Angeles Chargers at 10 p.m. EDT Aug. 14 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.
