Rams DT Aaron Donald Ends Holdout, Won't Play Sunday

LA Rams Run Over Colts in Season Opener

The Rams' nightmare scenario ended Saturday morning when star defensive lineman Aaron Donald ended his contract holdout and reported to the team, albeit without a new contract.

Donald has no timetable to return to the field, but Los Angeles' front seven will welcome him back with open arms and eyes on the quarterback.

Donald's representatives and the Rams will continue to work towards reaching a new deal, the team reported on their website Saturday. Los Angeles Rams' coach Sean McVay has said Donald will play whenever he is able to contribute, even if he doesn't play all the snaps.

Donald will not be fined for the missed time during training camp and the preseason by reporting to the team's practice facility to conduct his physical. In 2017, Donald has a $1.8 million base salary and will carry a $3.2 million cap hit. "But in the meantime we've got to get ready to play a football game and we know the Colts are getting ready as well". The defensive star is one of the best players in the National Football League but a contract dispute with his team. He was named 2014 AP Defensive Rookie of the year, and has been a Pro Bowl selection in each of his first three years. Donald is one of those players, and they need to get him a contract soon that better suits one of the best players in the NFL.

It is doubtful if he will even play in the next couple of weeks.
