Rookie RB Cam Akers needs touches before the bye week

The LA Rams have played veteran running backs too frequently. Rookie RB Akers needs touches before the bye week The LA Rams drafted rookie running back Cam Akers as a versatile offensive weapon to round out the offensive backfield. Just to place everything into the proper perspective, the Rams backfield appeared very barren after cutting […] Rookie RB Cam Akers needs touches before the bye week - Ramblin Fan - Ramblin Fan - A Los Angeles Rams Site (formerly St. Louis Rams Fan) - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Darrell Henderson creeping closer to rushing leaders as Cam Akers, Malcolm Brown fade away

Photo by Bob Kupbens/Icon Sportswire via Cam Akers has seen his playing time dwindle, passes to Malcolm Brown are not working LA Rams running back Darrell Henderson suffered a hamstring injury in training camp and played in only five snaps in Week 1. Since then, a combination of factors has led to him becoming the offense’s primary ball carrier and he is ninth in rushing yards in the NFL since Week 2. Despite the Rams’ 24-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Henderson had 14 carries for 88 yards during his 32 snaps on the field. Over the last five games, Henderson has 69...

Rams-49ers snap counts: Cam Akers gets 1 play

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ And other players too The LA Rams lost to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. Here are the Rams snap counts from the game. Offense Notes: Cam Akers only got one snap this week, no carries. He has not gotten many snaps this season without getting a carry and that lack of versatility may have kept him off the field against the 49ers. It wasn’t that Sean McVay was abandoning the run necessarily, but his gameplan in that area didn’t involve anyone other than Darrell Henderson. Malcolm Brown essentially took part in one series where he...

Darrell Henderson leads backfield on SNF

Darrell Henderson leads backfield on SNF

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ The backfield carasoul continued on Sunday night. From the very first game of the season through Sunday night’s contest against the 49ers, the Rams’ backfield has been a constant game of “Guess Who?” between their trio of ball-carriers. Against the Cowboys in Week 1, after all of the hype surrounding rookie Cam Akers during the offseason, it was veteran Malcolm Brown that handled the majority of carries, including most of the goal-line work which ended in him scoring his only two touchdowns of the season. Through Weeks 2 and 3, it became the Darrell...

Rams-Football Team snap counts: Cam Akers, Jordan Fuller return to the field

Photo by Patrick McDermott/ Plus the debut of Terrell Lewis Going into the season, the East was thought to have at least two teams scraping to either get out of — or deeper into — the basement and it turns out that the division might not have a single team with a winning record by the end of 2020. The East doesn’t have a team with winning record now and they are led by the 2-3 Cowboys, a group that lost their franchise quarterback on Sunday to a devastating broken ankle injury. But what matters to the LA Rams and how their season plays out is that they’ve completed a sweep of...

Final Score: Rams 30, Washington 10

Final Score: Rams 30, Washington 10

Photo by Greg Fiume/ VICTORY! After a rather slow first quarter where each team traded touchdowns, the Rams found a different gear in the final three quarters as they cruised to an overwhelming 30-10 victory over the Washington Football Team at FedEx Field. Jared Goff was fairly efficient in this one as he completed 21 of his 30 passes for 309 yards with two scores and an interception while also adding a rushing score off of a bootleg. Rookie Cam Akers led the team in rushing with 61 yards on nine carries, which was highlighted by a 46-yard end around in the fourth quarter. Teammate...

Sean McVay: Cam Akers on track to play Sunday vs Football Team

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ The Rams need to get more broken and forced missed tackle from their running backs The LA Rams had a running back competition in training camp, and even if Sean McVay had always planned to use all three of his expected options between Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown, there would eventually have to be a desirable pecking order. Few have expected Brown to come out as the number one option but he’s leading the team in carries and snaps through four games. However, it seemed evident on the first drive of Week 2 that Akers would not be held back just...
