Undrafted rookie Tommy Devito replaced him and finished the game 15-of-20 for 175 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

Vikings Fear Cam Akers Has Achilles Tear

Minnesota Vikings RB Cam Akers is feared to have suffered a torn Achilles during Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Akers had eight carries for 25 yards and three catches for 13 yards before suffering the injury. Minnesota acquired Akers in a trade with the Rams in late September. He's in the final year of his rookie contract.

Akers also tore his Achilles in 2021 and made it back for the Rams' Super Bowl run after undergoing the same surgery Aaron Rodgers just had with the Jets.

This is the second straight week the Vikings have had a player suffer a torn Achilles after Kirk Cousins had it last week. — 5:00 p.m.
