All-Pro defensive lineman Aaron Donald reported to the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, ending his four-month holdout without getting a new contract.

The Rams play the Indianapolis Colts in the opener on Sunday. Get the app and get the game. Donald would have risked forfeiting weekly game checks of $106,014 if he missed any regular season games, and it's possible the Rams would have made him pay the fines if he chose to go that route.

Donald's representatives and the Rams will continue to work towards reaching a new deal, the team reported on their website Saturday.

Kylian Mbappe: I met with Arsene Wenger
But club president Nasser Al Khelaifi, sat beside Mbappe, said PSG had nothing to hide over the transactions and were confident. Mbappe, regarded as one of the sport's rising stars, scored 21 goals last season to help Monaco win the Ligue 1 title.

Rams fans are surely excited to see what Donald will do under newly appointed defensive coordinator Wade Phillips but will have to wait until at least Week 2 before they see No. 99 back on the field again. The defensive tackle was absent for much of the Rams' offseason program, and then did not report to training camp as negotiations were ongoing. They can include him on the 53-man roster - he's now on the did not report list - or they can ask for a roster exemption, similar to the one the Steelers got with Le'Veon Bell.

Donald is entering only his fourth NFL season, but he is absolutely playing at the level of the other two best defensive players in the league. Currently, he's scheduled to make just $1.802 million, a bargain for the Rams but a pittance for a player of Donald's caliber.
