A little more than a week ago when Aaron Donald got in a fight during a joint practice between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, which ended in him violently swinging a Bengals player's helmet, many speculated if it would be cause for a suspension.
No such suspension has come since the NFL doesn't regulate practices and training camp or the fights that inevitably happen during them every year. While that's a whole separate debate in itself, Donald officially spoke to the media for the first time since the incident and did his best Bill Belichick impression when pressed about his actions.
Aaron Donald Interview
Donald simply emphasized he was focused on Thursday night's season opener against the Buffalo Bills. Further neglecting to comment on what transpired that day in training camp. And it seems like this may ultimately be something that kind of just blows over. This is far from the first questionable action Donald has committed on the football field, but those too have blown over in a few days.
As arguably the game's best player, specifically on the defensive side of the ball, and with the goal of repeating as Super Bowl champions this season, both the Rams and Donald clearly want to keep the focus on Thursday night and football in general.
Los Angeles heads into Week 1 a 2.5-point home underdog against the Bills, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The Bills also lead in the odds to win the Super Bowl this season at +600. The Rams check in at 4th, with +1100 odds to repeat.
