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, but it is Donald that makes them so good on that side of the football. He was injured in the win over the Seattle Seahawks shedding doubt 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, according to head coach Sean McVay.
“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 while in the running with 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 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.
