Rams star Aaron Donald has never missed an NFL game due to injury, and he doesn’t plan for that to change this week. Despite suffering torn rib cartilage on Saturday against the Seahawks, Donald is fully expected to play in the divisional round this weekend.

Sean McVay was asked Tuesday for an update on Donald and he left no doubt about whether the six-time All-Pro will be on the field against the Packers. He said very simply, “The Terminator will be ready” as long as there are no setbacks.

Donald was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday to start the week, but McVay said to “take that with a grain of salt. The Rams only held a walk-through, so each player’s status was merely an estimation if they were to have had a normal practice.

Donald is as tough as they come and even if he’s in some pain on Saturday, he’ll be on the field against the Packers and Aaron Rodgers.
