DWinzit Posted January 30, 2011 Share Posted January 30, 2011 More to struggle of Eagles' Akers than missed kicks It has been revealed that the "personal matter" K David Akers was dealing with during the Eagles' 21-16 Wild Card round loss to the Packers was a possible cancer diagnosis for his 6-year-old daughter Halley. Akers, of course, missed two field-goal attempts that day, drawing the ire of head coach Andy Reid afterward. He found out the next day that Halley did indeed have cancer. Thankfully, she is believed to be cancer free after undergoing surgery. Akers says he was "deeply hurt" by Reid's comments, however, and believes his career in Philadelphia has likely come to an end. A five-time Pro Bowler, teams will be lining up to sign him this offseason.
