Cam Akers (personal) returning to Rams practice Thursday

Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (personal) will return to practice on Thursday.

What It Means:

Akers and the Rams have apparently resolved their differences and it now seems like he will remain with the team. There's even a chance that Akers will be active in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Ronnie Rivers started ahead of Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown last week, but he only gained 36 yards on 12 touches. Henderson had six touches for 30 yards and Brown five carries for 10 yards.

numberFire's models currently project Akers for 4.9 touches and 22.8 yards in Week 9. Henderson is projected for 12.0 touches and Rivers is projected for 6.2 touches. Per our advanced team metrics, the Rams have the No. 20 rushing attack in the league and the Bucs have the No. 16 run defense.
