If you’re one of those people who think Aaron Donald is damn near untouchable with the things that he does, you have even more reason to believe that now.
Three years ago, Myles Garrett was suspended six games after swinging Mason Rudolph’s helmet during a game. Video emerged from Thursday’s Rams-Bengals joint practice of Aaron Donald doing the same thing.
Donald is shown swinging the helmet of a Bengals player as a weapon during a practice fight. Huge brawls in practice are common, but this was taken to another level.
Donald seemed to end up with two helmets — one in each hand — amid the chaos and was eventually tackled to the ground.
According to the latest report from NFL insider Josina Anderson, he won’t be facing any penalties from the league.
“Club handles, so the league does not get involved. Always been that way,” a league source reportedly told her.
Donald has not missed a game since 2017 and has made the All-Pro team for seven years running.
Donald has also recorded over 10 sacks for five straight seasons.
Perhaps there was some bad blood left over from the Super Bowl, but the helmet incident is only going to make things worse.
