Bengals are retaining offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, signing him to a new contract.
Cincinnati was shut out in Week 1 and scored nine points in a Week 2 loss to the Texans. They then fired OC Ken Zampese and promoted Lazor. In the next 14 games, the Bengals averaged 20.1 points (on pace to finish 21st in scoring) and were 24th in yards per play run.
Rams RB Cam Akers is out Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, according to Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.
It is best for Akers to be fully healthy before coming back, especially if he wants to compete for touches with Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson. It is a disappointing start to Akers' rookie season to say the least.
