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.
McDonald (hip) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Cardinals, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
McDonald fit in a pair of limited sessions last week but was still held out Sunday versus the Cowboys due to an ailing hip. With three more limited practices in his back pocket this week, his availability is again in flux, which could place fellow tight end Garrett Celek in a prime position for another fruitful outing.
