In an interview on Tuesday, Rams coach Sean McVay said admitted that he feels “so bad” for Cam Akers. But he also had to look forward to how he’s going to manage the loss of his talented running back.
“We’ve got some young backs on our roster that I’m intrigued about seeing how they handle this opportunity,” McVay told 710 ESPN. “I don’t know that the veteran route is something that we’d rule out, but it’s not something we’re immediately looking to address right now.”
