Cam Akers, a top running back who suffered a terrible injury back in July during his preparation for the 2021 NFL season, was out for over five and a half months before the Rams activated him again in December.

And while Akers only returned to the field last week, he was able to log 5 carries and three interceptions in Week 18’s game against the 49ers. For tonight’s game vs Arizona, Akers is backing up Sony Michel, as Darell Herderson is out 3-5 weeks due an MCL sprain.

The NFC West rivals will face off for the third time after each team has won the road matchup; In week 4, Arizona (1106) crushed Los Angeles 37-20 at SoFi Stadium, and the Rams (12-5) scored a gritty 30-23 win at State Farm Stadium.

The Cardinals vs Rams is set to kickoff tonight at 8:15 pm ET on ESPN.

How did Cam Akers recover so quickly?

When the second-round rookie tore his Achilles in July, it was almost instantly assumed that he would be sidelined for the remainder of the 2021-22 season as Achilles injuries generally take athletes nine to 12 months to recover.

However, thanks to the more advanced surgical treatment, the process of treating a torn Achilles has changed, and that’s why we saw Akers back with Los Angeles in Week 18. Now the 22-year-old is penciled in as the No. 2 RB for Los Angeles, and he might be the tiny push that helps LA advance past the Wild Card Weekend.
