Sean McVay: Aaron Donald will start in Week 2

By Jesse Reed

The Los Angeles Rams will have starting defensive tackle Aaron Donald back in the lineup in Week 2 after he missed the first game following a lengthy holdout.

While we don’t know how much Donald will play Sunday, this is bad, bad news for Kirk Cousins and the Washington offense — a unit that was awful in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Los Angeles set an NFL record last weekend at home against the Indianapolis Colts, and now the Rams are getting their top defensive star back. In his first three seasons, the former Pitt star has racked up 28 sacks and hundreds of quarterback pressures. He’s the most disruptive interior lineman in the NFL and will likely benefit even more now that Wade Phillips is running the defense for Los Angeles.
