Sport NFL World Reacts To Unfortunate Aaron Donald Update
49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo breaks record once held by Joe Montana, Colin Kaepernick
According to Grant Gordon of the league's website, NFL Research pointed out that the 49ers are now 14-0 when Garoppolo doesn't throw an interception during a game. That's a new record for San Francisco quarterbacks and breaks a team mark once shared by Hall of Famer Joe Montana and Colin Kaepernick. Garoppolo completed 20-of-29 pass attempts for 228 yards with four touchdowns and no picks against Arizona en route to leading San Francisco to a third-straight victory. The 6-4 49ers next host the 4-7 New Orleans Saints this coming Sunday.
With several of the Los Angeles Rams' biggest stars already out for the season, all-world defensive lineman Aaron Donald is dealing with an injury of his own.
On Wednesday, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that Donald has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Donald is currently dealing with an ankle injury and hopes to be back on the field within a few weeks.
Packers working out familiar ex-receiver
It may not be Davante Adams, but Aaron Rodgers could be soon getting some help from an old buddy, a receiver who spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Packers.Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported on Tuesday that the former Packers receiver Geronimo Allison was back in Green Bay this week for a workout with the team. Allison, 28, is still unsigned to this point of the NFL season.
The Rams are 3-9 on the season and long since removed from the playoff conversation. But with no first round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, they don't even have an incentive to lose any remaining games.
As a result, Raiders fans are eagerly awaiting a chance to get a potentially easy win over the Rams now that they don't have to deal with Donald. Other fans are laughing at the Rams for having nothing to win for or nothing to lose for:
But ultimately, the Rams probably aren't lamenting the state of the season too much. All of this pain is the result of the team going 100-percent all-in on the 2021 season - a gamble which paid off in the greatest way imaginable as they won their second Super Bowl in franchise history.
The drawback is that doing so might have set the organization back several years. Right now we're at one year and counting.
