Rams coach Sean McVay claims ‘Terminator’ Aaron Donald will be readyBy Ryan Ward
The Los Angeles Rams will take on the Green Bay Packers this weekend with some major injury concerns ahead of this playoff matchup against arguably the best team in the NFC. The biggest concern for the Rams is the health of superstar Aaron Donald. Los Angeles may have one of the best defenses in the NFL. However, it is Donald that makes them so good on that side of the football. He was injured in the win over the Seattle Seahawks. As a result, doubt is shed on whether he’ll be ready for the matchup with the Packers.
Fortunately for Los Angeles, it appears Donald will be ready to go for the team’s playoff showdown. Coach Sean McVay was in a confident mood about his superstar.

Rams HC Sean McVay on DL Aaron Donald's status for Saturday's game vs. Packers:
"Unless something unforeseen happens, the terminator will be ready."

The Rams will have their work cut out for them on Saturday against Aaron Rodgers and company. Rodgers is arguably the favorite to win NFL MVP this year. Meanwhile, in the running are Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry.
The Packers are currently favored to come out on top in this NFC showdown as they are arguably the better all-around team led by one of the league’s elite quarterbacks in Rodgers. Los Angeles also has question marks about the playing statuses of Cooper Kupp and Jared Goff, who are both dealing with injuries.
Although Aaron Donald being given the green light by McVay is a good sign, it might not be enough to get the best of the Packers, especially if Goff and or Cupp can’t play.
