Fantasy Impact Donald is the best player on the Rams and this is huge news for their defense, which has suffered a lot of injuries this preseason.

The late arrival means that Donald will not be on the field when the Rams begin the season Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Rams star defensive lineman still has two years remaining on his rookie contract with the team picking up his fifth-year option this offseason, but Los Angeles' general manager Les Snead has repeatedly stated this offseason that their goal is to make Donald a Ram for a long time.

Donald has not been with Rams since minicamp.
