It appears that the Los Angeles Rams will have their most important player available on Saturday for their NFC Divisional Round matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Despite suffering a rib injury and missing most of the second half of their win against the Seahawks in the Wild Card Round, Aaron Donald will be suited up and ready to go on Saturday.

Rams coach Sean McVay and Aaron Donald himself revealed in media availability that the big defensive tackle had recovered quickly enough to participate just a week after he went down.

“I feel good, feel real good,” Donald said on Wednesday. “No pain, feel healthy.”

The six-time First-Team All-Pro, widely considered the best defensive player in the league, will be key if the Rams are to pull off a huge upset on Saturday afternoon. His pressure on quarterbacks is a key part of the Rams’ defense and a reason the team was able to sneak into the playoffs despite an inconsistent season.

Donald finished the season with 45 combined tackles and 13.5 sacks and could play a big part in making things difficult for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The Rams and Packers will face off at Lambeau Field in Green Bay on Saturday at 4:35 pm Eastern Time.
