Aaron Donald may want to just move on, but the fans still want to know what was going through his mind when he decided to hit players with helmets during a scuffle.
It’s not often you see an NFL player swing a helmet at an opponent, but that’s exactly what happened last week when Aaron Donald was in Cincinnati. The incident went down on Aug. 25th, and the Rams star was finally asked about the situation.
During an interview on CBS Sports Radio, Donald seemed to insinuate that the helmet swing wasn’t a big deal because it didn’t happen during a game.
“It was just a practice,” Donald said on The Zach Gelb Show. “Obviously, people got phones out and things like that, but I’m not going to sit and talk about negative stuff that happened at a practice. My main focus is Buffalo.”
Video has since come out of that awkward interaction with the reporter.
Donald likely won’t be facing any punishment because the incident happened in a practice. The NFL always defers to the team for punishment whenever there’s an issue at practice, which means any punishment would have to come from the Rams.
Donald was asked by the reporter if there ended up being any sort of internal punishment.
“We talked,” Donald said. “We talked.”
Considering how hard he came down with his swing, Donald was fortunate no one suffered any serious injuries.
