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, 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 exited Sunday's action against the Cardinals in the second half and did not return. However, he has either made an expedited pass through the NFL's concussion protocol or was never diagnosed with a concussion to begin with. Regardless, he appears healthy and ready to play in Week 5.
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.
McDonald will appear in court Oct. 7 for a charge of driving under the influence of drugs, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
The incident occurred in May and led to McDonald's absence from OTAs. He's available for the time being, but a suspension could come down before the end of the season. A starter in each of his 38 NFL appearances, McDonald had eight tackles in a Week 1 loss to the 49ers.
