Rams fans held their breath when the All-Pro
defensive tackle, who anchors a defense that allowed the fewest
points of any team in the National Football League this season,
was injured and did not return in his team's 30-20 win over the
Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
"I feel real good, no pain. I feel healthy," Donald told
reporters this week, adding that he did not want to spend the
entire interview taking about his "damn side."
"I feel good, I feel strong, and I'll be ready come Saturday."
Donald, who was nicknamed "The Terminator" by head coach Sean
McVay, knows he will have his work cut out for him against the
potent Packers offense, which led the league is scoring this
"He's a great quarterback that's playing lights out this year,"
he said of Rodgers, who threw 48 touchdowns to just five
interceptions this season
The Rams' defense will need a big game since their offense is
banged up. On Thursday, McVay said the team would be without
quarterback John Wolford, who started against Seattle before
exiting early with a neck injury.
The Rams were forced to turn to regular starter Jared Goff, who
is recovering from surgery on the thumb on his throwing hand but
was able to lead the team to victory in Seattle.
Donald said he was not concerned about the chilly conditions and
the snow that is expected to blanket Lambeau Field on Saturday
and that it would not affect his ribs.
"Once we get out there, we'll be playing football and moving
around, so we'll be good," he said.
