Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is expected to absent as the Los Angeles Rams begin their voluntary nine-week 2017 offseason workout and conditioning program Monday at California Lutheran University.

The initial two-week phase of the program is limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation under terms of the league’s collective bargaining agreement.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Donald “almost certainly will not” participate in the workouts as his agent continues to seek a new contract for him.

Donald did not participate in the workouts and missed all of training camp last season in what proved to be an unsuccessful attempt for a contract extension. However, he was selected as the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year in voting by sports reporters from The Associated Press.

The workout sessions are closed to the public.
