Cam Akers (ribs) not progressing as quickly as expected

Rams coach Sean McVay says Cam Akers (ribs) "isn’t coming along as quickly as he anticipated." (Lindsey Thiry on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Akers suffered a rib injury in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Eagles that always sounded a little worse than the team was letting on. It's beginning to look as if Akers will miss the team's Week 3 tilt with the Buffalo Bills, which would vault Darrell Henderson into high-end FLEX territory. Malcolm Brown would be a FLEX option as well, but Henderson is the preferred option as he's suddenly the healthiest option in this backfield.
