The hits just keep on coming for the Rams. On Friday afternoon, head coach Sean McVay announced that star defensive lineman Aaron Donald won’t suit up for Sunday’s game against the Broncos.
To make matters worse, McVay said it’s unlikely Donald will play again this season. Donald has missed the last three games with a high ankle sprain.
Since the Rams have been officially eliminated from playoff contention, it makes no sense to rush the All-Pro back on the field.
Besides, the Rams are already without quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Cooper Kupp.
Rams ruled out DT Aaron Donald for Sunday’s game vs. Denver, and HC Sean McVay said it’s unlikely he will play again this season.

Donald has been so durable throughout his career. In fact, this season marks the first time he has missed a regular-season game since 2017.
In 11 games this season, Donald had 49 total tackles, five sacks and one forced fumble.
The Rams will try to get all their stars back to full strength for the 2023 season.
