Draft Scout Aaron Donald News
10/02/16 - DT Aaron Donald broke through the Cardinals' offensive line regularly during Sunday's game. He made it hurt toward the end, as he knocked down Palmer and the back of QB Carson Palmer's head slammed down hard on the field. Palmer was evaluated for a concussion on the sideline and was replaced by backup Drew Stanton.
09/13/16 - DT Aaron Donald's frustrating night ended early. Donald drew an unnecessary roughness penalty when he pulled 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton's helmet off, then quickly was ejected after making contact with an official with 6:42 to play in the game.
"I just let emotion get the best of me," said Donald, who slammed his helmet to the ground after being ejected. "I can't make mistakes like that and hurt my team."
09/13/16 - DT Aaron Donald was kicked out of the game after ripping off the helmet of 49ers WR Quinton Patton and then making contact with a referee. "I just let emotions get the best of me. There's no excuses," he said. "I can't make mistakes like that and hurt my team."
12/17/15 - DT Aaron Donald was his usually disruptive self with five tackles, including two for loss, and three quarterback hits. Donald stuffed running back Doug Martin for a 2-yard loss on fourth-and-1 at the Rams' 23 midway through the second quarter to end a Buccaneers drive that lasted more than seven minutes. That is the kind of play that should earn Donald consideration as the league's Defensive Player of the Year.
12/13/15 - DT Aaron Donald was simply too strong, too quick and too good for the interior linemen who tried and failed to keep him out of the Lions' backfield.
"Our defense made (Stafford) hold the ball a little longer," Donald said. "I've worked my butt off during the offseason. The coaches helped me add to my pass-rushing, but I still have things to work on."
Making Donald's performance more impressive was that the Rams' defense has been depleted by injuries during a five-game losing streak. The team put end Robert Quinn and safety T.J. McDonald on season-ending injured reserve this week, while linebacker Alec Ogletree has been out most of the year.
