There’s finally some good news on the Rams’ injury front for their Week 17 matchup against the Cardinals.
Rookie running back Cam Akers is active for Los Angeles after missing last week’s loss to Seattle with an ankle injury. Akers has been the Rams’ lead back late this season, accentuated by his 171-yard performance in a victory over the Patriots.
Outside linebacker Leonard Floyd is active as well, after he was hospitalized as a precautionary measure for abdominal pain on Friday.
Los Angeles is playing Sunday’s game without key players on both offense and defense. Jared Goff is out with a thumb injury, while wide receiver Cooper Kupp and defensive tackle Michael Brockers are both on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
