McDonald caught just one of six targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 34-17 loss to Tampa Bay.
McDonald saw the second most targets Sunday, but Colin Kaepernick struggled with his accuracy, completing just 16 of 34 passes. It's hard to get excited about anyone in San Francisco's passing attack, but McDonald does appear to be healthy after recently missing a couple of games with a hip injury. Next week, the 49ers will be on their bye.
McDonald had missed the
McDonald (hip) was a full practice participant Friday and is slated to play in Sunday's game against the Bills.
Although he missed a couple games, McDonald has been practicing in a limited capacity for more than two weeks. He finally upped it to full participation Friday, leaving him with no injury designation for Week 6. Prior to the injury, McDonald was competing for snaps and targets with Garrett Celek, making it difficult for either tight end to produce. They'll likely go back to that arrangement Sunday.
McDonald (hip) was limited at practice Wednesday, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.
Limited showings haven't translated to active status for McDonald the past two games, so an unhinged session would be the best indication that a return to the field is nigh. If another DNP is required, though, Garrett Celek will continue to hold down the fort at tight end.
