McDonald (suspension) signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins on Friday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. This is an interesting signing for the Dolphins, considering that McDonald is suspended for the first eight games of the season due to a violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. The 26-year-old recorded 64 tackles, two interceptions and a sack last season with the Rams. He figures to serve as a reserve safety and possible special-teams contributor once he returns from his suspension in early November.
McDonald has been suspended for the first eight games of the 2017 regular season, Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports. Per the report, McDonald's suspension for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse stems from an arrest in May of 2016 which led to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of drugs. The safety, who is a free agent, played for the Rams this past season, recording 64 tackles, two interceptions and a sack.
McDonald (wrist) was removed from the Rams' injury report. McDonald was reported to be day-to-day with his wrist injury after last week's game against the Seahawks but he appears to be over the issue now and shouldn't be held out any further due to the injury, barring setbacks.
McDonald is currently day-to-day with a sprained wrist, Myles Simmons of TheRams.com reports. The injury presumably occurred in Thursday's loss to the Seahawks. His status for Week 16 will have to be monitored going forward.
McDonald is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals after leaving to be evaluated for a concussion in the second half, Rams' insider Myles Simmons reports. McDonald will finish Sunday's game with just one tackle if he's unable to return. Marqui Christian figures to see some extra reps as long as McDonald is out.
