Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers' second NFL season is over before it even began.
According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Akers suffered a torn Achilles tendon. If that proves to be the case, Akers likely would miss the entire 2021 season. Might the Rams need to sign a veteran? It's certainly possible.
Among the top free agents left unsigned include former Rams running back Todd Gurley, Le'Veon Bell, Duke Johnson, LeSean McCoy, T.J. Yeldon, Adrian Peterson and others. Gurley's connection to the Rams make him an obvious candidate to return, although he's been connected to the Ravens for a bit now.
