Aaron Donald breaks silence on his shocking helmet swing that drilled a Bengals player during wild brawl

It is not typically you see an NFL participant swing a helmet at an opponent, however that is precisely what occurred final week when Aaron Donald was in Cincinnati. The incident went down Aug. 25, and almost one week later, the Rams star was lastly requested concerning the scenario and he went full Allen Iverson. 

Throughout an interview on CBS Sports Radio, Donald appeared to insinuate that the helmet swing wasn’t a giant deal as a result of it did not occur throughout a recreation. 

“It was only a apply,” Donald stated on The Zach Gelb Present. “Clearly, individuals received telephones out and issues like that, however I am not going to take a seat and discuss unfavorable stuff that occurred at a apply. My principal focus is Buffalo.”

As Iverson as soon as famously stated, “We speaking about apply. Not a recreation.”

Though a participant can get punished for swinging a helmet at somebody in a recreation — Myles Garrett received suspended six video games for that actual scenario — Donald seemingly will not be going through any punishment as a result of the incident occurred in a apply. The NFL always defers to the team for punishment every time there’s a problem at apply, which suggests any punishment must come from the Rams. 

Rams coach Sean McVay was requested Aug. 27 if there could be a punishment for Donald and he gave a imprecise reply. 

“We have dealt with it internally and we’ll hold that in home,” McVay stated during the Rams’ 16-7 loss to the Bengals

Donald was requested by Gelb if there ended up being any form of inner punishment, and from the sound of it, the reply is not any. 

“We talked,” Donald stated. “We talked.”

The helmet swing occurred during a Rams-Bengals joint practice last week. Close to the tip of the apply, a wild brawl began after a Rams defender grabbed Bengals offensive lineman La’el Collins from behind, according to ESPN. Sooner or later a short while later, Collins managed to grab Leonard Floyd’s helmet and throw it at him after which all hell broke unfastened from there. 

Sooner or later throughout the chaos, Donald grabbed not one, however two helmets, and began swinging them. Not solely was Donald taking swings, however he really made a connection.

Within the video above, you possibly can clearly see (and listen to) him hitting somebody over the top with a helmet. The individual he hit was sporting a helmet, so nobody received injured. 

Contemplating how laborious he got here down together with his swing, Donald was lucky nobody suffered any severe accidents. 

Regardless of exhibiting a complete disregard for participant security, Donald seems to have prevented any severe punishment, which suggests he’ll be on the sector when the NFL season kicks off subsequent Thursday in Los Angeles when the Rams host the Bills
