Aaron Donald ends holdout, will not play Sunday vs. Colts

However, it appears it has come to an end after the 26-year-old has reported to the team's practice facility on Saturday where he passed a physical without a new deal in place.

Donald has not received a new contract, but the two sides will keep working toward one, the source told Schefter.

Donald will be added to the active roster with Los Angeles seeking a roster exemption, which is standard in these situations.

"He is not ruled out, but right now he's not here", Rams coach Sean McVay told TheRams.com.

Had Donald's holdout continued into the regular season, his absence would have cost him something like $106,000 a week, a not-insignificant amount of money for a guy whose base salary is $1.8 million. Donald refused to be with the team this preseason in protest of his contract.

Donald has not been with Rams since minicamp. He was named 2014 AP Defensive Rookie of the year, and has been a Pro Bowl selection in each of his first three years. 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. 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 has no timetable to return to the field, but Los Angeles' front seven will welcome him back with open arms and eyes on the quarterback.
