Cam Akers was inactive Sunday for the Rams’ 30-23 Week 2 loss against the 49ers and L.A.’s former starting running back is on the trading block, according to Fox Sports.
The Rams have already contacted other teams in an effort to move Akers, who didn’t play Sunday despite being healthy, Jay Glazer reported. Akers responded to the report on X (formerly Twitter).
A former second-round pick, Akers helped the Rams win the Super Bowl during his second season after recovering from an Achilles injury that was sustained during the summer. He rushed for a career-high 786 yards and seven touchdowns last year despite asking for a trade during the first half of the season. Akers had just 29 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries during the Rams’ Week 1 loss to the Seahawks.
Second-year back Kyren Williams replaced Akers in the Rams’ starting lineup in Week 2 against the 49ers. He rushed for 52 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and caught six passes for 48 yards and a touchdown. Williams led the Rams last week with 52 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries.
