The Los Angeles Rams will likely be without their best player to start the regular season, as Aaron Donald's holdout continues. Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns suffered the worst possible news today, as it has been confirmed that Myles Garrett will miss time due to a high ankle sprain he suffered in practice. Plus, the Oakland Raiders and kicker Sebastian Janikowski have agreed on a new deal after there was speculation he would be cut if he did not take a pay cut.

Donald's hold out spills into regular season

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Los Angeles Rams star defensive lineman Aaron Donald is expected to miss the team's regular season opener against the Indianapolis Colts as part of his contract holdout.

Donald has already been fined $1.4 million for skipping the team's training camp and preseason games.

If Donald really does not show up for the contest against the Colts, he will lose his first of 17 games checks, which are worth about $1.8 million each. It will also mean that rookie Tanzel Smart, the team's sixth round pick out of Tulane, will start in his place as a defensive end in the team's 3-4 defense.

Browns will not have Garrett to start the season

Yesterday Myles Garrett, who the Cleveland Browns selected with the first pick in the 2017 draft out of Texas A&M, got injured during the team's first full practice leading up to their season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The defensive end suffered the injury when he was engaged with an offensive lineman and a teammate fell on the side of his lower leg.

The team announced today that Garrett has been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain and will miss at least two weeks. He will then be reevaluated and could miss more time, as sometimes this injury can sideline players for up to six weeks.

Raiders and Janikowski agree on a new deal

Sources informed ESPN's Adam Schefter last night that the Oakland Raiders and long time kicker Sebastian Janikowski had resolved their contract differences and that he would remain with the team.

Today Schefter reported on that details of the reworked contract, which will see the kicker's guaranteed salary go from $4.05 million to $3 million.

Janikowski can earn $250,000 back in incentives if he makes 83% of his field goals. This season is his 17th with the Raiders, which is a team record along with his 268 games played. For his career, the 39-year-old is 414/515 (80.4%) on field goals and 557-563 (98.9%) on extra points.
