Eagles Kicker David Akers was rattled by Family Emergency days before Packers game
Apparently David Akers had a lot more on his mind than football when he missed some big kicks against the Packers.He was excused from practice the Friday before to attend a ultrasound and MRI for his six year old daughter Halley.Akers and his wife were told that she had a growth on her ovary and it would have to be removed before it spread. Akers made no excuses after the game, I excuse him.
