Rams DT Aaron Donald feels 'no pain' after rib injury: 'I feel strong, and I'll be ready come Saturday' vs. Packers

Aaron Donald is ready to wreck Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

The two-time AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year said he's fine after suffering torn rib cartridge in Saturday's playoff victory.

"No pain, I feel healthy," Donald said, via NFL Network's Stacey Dales.

Donald left Saturday's win against the Seahawks early in the third quarter and didn't return -- NFL Network's Mike Garafolo previously reported the DT could have returned if needed late. Donald said Wednesday it felt like he got the wind knocked out of him when the injury occurred.

Heading into the cold of Lambeau Field, Donald said he'll be ready to rock.

"The way I'm feeling right now, I'm not too worried about it," he said. "I feel good, I feel strong, and I'll be ready come Saturday."

Donald did not practice on Wednesday. In other Rams injury notes, quarterback John Wolford (neck) and receiver Cooper Kupp (knee) did not practice, either. Offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth (knee) was limited and quarterback Jared Goff (thumb) was a full participant for a second-straight day.

Rams head coach Sean McVay once more offered little update on whether Goff or Wolford would start at QB versus the Packers, saying just that he was "taking it a day at a time."
