On Thursday, U.S. time, Rams running back Cam Akers returned to team training, declaring that his Achilles tendon tear was basically fully recovered.
The Rams opened the 21-day return window for Aix on Thursday. Axe was the Rams’ number one running back last season, but was injured in a private training session in July this year. Originally, Aix expected to miss the entire season, but his recovery process was faster than expected, which was able to return at the end of the season. The remaining three opponents of the Rams are the Vikings, the Ravens and the 49ers.
Although it was only in the second half of the game that he started to get a steady chance to play, Aix still contributed 625 rushing yards for the 2020 season. The Rams’ number one running back this season is Darrell Henderson, who rushed for 671 yards and 5 touchdowns. Sony Michel also contributed 597 rushing yards, of which 292 yards came from the past three games.
In addition, defensive guard Juju Hughes, Antoine Brooks and Jake Gervase will also return from the new crown reserve list.
