Aaron Donald might not have broken his ribs, but he is dealing with a pretty significant injury.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle has torn rib cartilage, per sources informed of the situation.

“Aaron Donald might not have broken his ribs, but the Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle is still dealing with a painful injury,” writes Kevin Patra of NFL.com. “NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning that Donald has torn rib cartilage, per sources informed of the situation. It’s a painful injury, but one that Donald is expected to play through.”

Although a painful injury, Coach Sean McVay said Sunday the rib injury isn’t expected to affect the DT’s game status against the Packers.

How many snaps he’s able to handle could play a big role in which club moves on to the NFC Championship Game.
