Aaron Donald reports to the Rams, ending his holdout

All-Pro defensive lineman Aaron Donald reported to the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, ending his four-month holdout without getting a new contract.

The Los Angeles Rams play their first game in the Los Angeles Coliseum Sunday against the Colts.

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. Donald would have risked forfeiting weekly game checks of $106,014 if he missed any regular season games, and it's possible the Rams would have made him pay the fines if he chose to go that route.

Donald and the Rams have no yet agreed on an extension, but Schefter reports that the two sides will continue to discuss a potential deal. Donald has stayed away from the Rams since offseason team activities in May, demanding a new contract after three standout National Football League seasons. Coach Sean McVay ruled him out for the opener Friday.

Donald has been absent throughout training camp and the preseason.

Donald has recorded 28.0 sacks in his first three seasons. The All-Pro defensive tackle is entering the fourth year of his five-year rookie deal and is slated to make $1.8 million in base salary this season.

It's reasonable to expect Donald to be back on the field in Week 2 against the Redskins, though ProFootballTalk suggests it could be a few weeks before he plays.
