Shark Bites

Rams DL Aaron Donald has announced his retirement after 10 NFL seasons. He won three defensive player of the year awards, 2014 defensive rookie of the year, and eight first-team All-Pro honors. The coming season will be the Rams' first without Donald in the lineup since 2013. From 2014-2023, he missed just nine total regular-season games. L.A. will obviously be hard-pressed to ever find another D-lineman near Donald's level. Expect them to look for help in that area with the 19th pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, though.

The Rams have added DT Aaron Donald to the injury report. He's questionable for tomorrow's game against the Commanders because of "tightness in his groin," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We've knocked Donald down the Week 15 DL rankings. If he's out for the game, the Rams' defense would become a riskier play with likely a lower fantasy ceiling.

The Rams have ruled DL Aaron Donald (ankle) out for Monday night’s game against the Packers

The Rams have already ruled DL Aaron Donald out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Donald might very well miss games beyond that, as he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain. We'll see what else comes from the team on that front. Missing Donald clearly damages the Rams defense vs. both the pass and the run. It's tough to say how much, because it'll be the 1st time in his career Donald has missed a game with injury. He previously sat out Week 1 of 2017 because of a contract dispute and then missed the regular-season finale that year after the team clinched.

Rams DL Aaron Donald suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. HC Sean McVay said Monday that his status for Sunday's game against the Seahawks is "TBD," according to Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. Losing Donald would obviously significantly impact the L.A. defense. We'll watch his status this week.
