The Rams and running back Cam Akers were able to put aside the differences that led Akers to miss the team’s last two games and he returned to practice with the club on Thursday.

Defensive tackle Aaron Donald said “it was good to see him” and offensive coordinator Liam Coen said everyone in the organization agreed with the call to move forward with a player. which looked like it could be traded earlier this week.

“I think the players believe and I believe, and our staff do, that everyone deserves a second chance,” Coen said, via Gilbert Manzano of the Orange County Registry. “Whatever issues or things that happened, if we make the decision to bring someone back, and Cam is on board, the players, the staff, everyone is on board to make that decision. It does not come overnight and simply decide. It’s something we talked about and everyone agrees, so see where it goes.

The hope around the Rams is that Akers’ return will help spark something that will move an underdog running game in the right direction. If this happens, it will probably make the bad feelings of the past two weeks go away.
