Steelers' Vance McDonald: Trio of catches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald recorded three receptions for 26 yards across 37 offensive reps in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

McDonald split time with Jesse James throughout the contest, bringing in three of his five targets. However, it was McDonald's first game back from foot injury, so there is a possibility he could see a heavier workload Monday against the Buccaneers.

Steelers' Vance McDonald: Cleared for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com

After sitting out the Week 1 tie with the Browns, McDonald proved his health by practicing fully Wednesday through Friday. Though he'll suit up Sunday, it's uncertain how prominently McDonald will be featured in the Steelers' passing attack in his first game back from the injury. It's expected that some sort of timeshare at tight end between McDonald and Jesse James will be in place for at least this week.

Steelers' Vance McDonald: Returns to full participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald (foot) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

McDonald missed the entire preseason and was either limited or absent at practice last week before sitting out the season-opening tie to the Browns. By starting the current week off without any restrictions, McDonald is on track to make his 2018 debut during Sunday's home game against the Chiefs. It will be interesting to see how the Steelers split playing time at tight end between McDonald and Jesse James, as the latter is more reliable while the former is a far superior athlete. It's a situation best avoided this week, though McDonald is worth keeping an eye on in general.

Steelers' Vance McDonald: Not in line to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald (foot) won't play Sunday against the Browns, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

McDonald practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, offering hope with regard to his Week 1 status. A subsequent absence Thursday then turned into news Friday that the tight end won't play this weekend. In his absence, Jesse James will start and see added opportunities in Sunday's season opener.

Steelers' Vance McDonald: Sits out practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald (foot) did not practice Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

McDonald practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, so the Thursday downgrade clouds the tight end's Week 1 status. McDonald considers himself day-to-day, but if he can't play Sunday against the Browns, added opportunities would be on tap for Jesse James.
