Los Angeles Rams star defensive tackle Aaron Donald received some good news on Sunday.

Initial X-rays on Donald's injured ribs came back negative for a break, NFL Network reported. The two-time Defensive Player of the Year was also expected to undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the severity of the injury.

Donald was injured while tossing quarterback Russell Wilson to the turf early in the third quarter during the Rams' 30-20 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday in an NFC wild-card game.

Donald, 29, joined Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce in being unanimous selections to the 2020 Associated Press All-Pro team on Friday. It was the sixth consecutive selection for Donald, who registered 13.5 sacks for a Rams defense that finished No. 1 in the NFL in scoring defense and total defense.

The sixth-seeded Rams will learn the identity of their next opponent following Sunday's wild-card game pitting the second-seeded New Orleans Saints against the seventh-seeded Chicago Bears. Los Angeles will visit the top-seeded Green Bay Packers should the Saints win at home, or will travel to Tampa Bay to face the fifth-seeded Buccaneers should the Bears post an upset.
