Head coach Jeff Fisher said Donald is getting double-teamed, which has created opportunities for other players. Fisher said the team is moving him around to create the one-on-one matchups. Further, the head coach said Donald is productive despite the lack of sacks.
Donald has come close to registering a sack.
“Why won’t these quarterbacks take their sacks like men?” Donald joked with coaches via ESPN.
Either way, the third-year player is getting recognized for his pass rushing efforts. Pro Football Focus ranked Donald as one of the two best defensive linemen in each of the past two Rams’ victories. Donald received a 95.8 pass rush grade from the website as he registered 17 quarterback pressures in the season, despite not sacking the quarterback once.
Teammate Michael Brockers understands Donald’s frustration about not registering a sack. He said his teammate is understandably pissed. Brockers said he would be livid if he were Donald.
Donald had 3 and 1/2 sacks by this time last year. The 6-foot-one defensive tackle sacked the quarterback 20 times in the past two seasons.
Donald has nine tackles and two passes defensed.
