DT Aaron Donald Ends Holdout, Reports To Rams

DT Aaron Donald Ends Holdout, Reports To Rams

The Rams announced Saturday that Donald had passed his physical during the team's walk-thru practice, but stated that he will not play in Los Angeles' Week 1 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

"He is not ruled out, but right now he's not here", Rams coach Sean McVay told TheRams.com.

There's no reason that Donald shouldn't be paid well, and the Rams hope to resolve that issue rather quickly with the Rams.

Donald, 26, did not participate in the Rams' preseason activities as he seeks a contract extension. In 2017, Donald has a $1.8 million base salary and will carry a $3.2 million cap hit. Donald would have lost $106,014 every game he sat out, but it appears he has avoided that outcome. He has made the Pro Bowl in each of the previous three seasons, and has been named first-team All-Pro in 2015 and 2016.

Donald has not been with Rams since minicamp. Here's how they have gotten off to slow starts.

If the Rams can make some noise at home versus the Colts, even without Andrew Luck playing on the opposite side, they could be in great shape by the time Donald is able to suit up in the near future. The Rams also received a short-term exemption from the National Football League that allowed them to add Donald as a 54th player, and prevented them from having to cut a player in order to get to the National Football League active-roster maximum of 53.
